I then had a phone interview about 2 weeks later. At the conclusion of the phone interview I was advised I would be brought in for a face to face interview with two managers. I came in with two other candidates. We all were given a presentation about the company and then broke out with two designated managers. After the interview with managers an aptitude test was given to all candidates. I was called about two weeks later and advised I would be extended an offer.

    I got a phone screen by applying on the website for technical internships. I was emailed for the phone screen within a week. Phone screen was around 15 minutes long. Was told that I would be contacted later for further steps. They never contacted me again after that, so I did not get an offer.

    Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was reached out to by email and phone call for a phone interview by the recruiter. The phone interview took 30 minutes, and the questions were very generic/predictable questions. For example, "Tell me about your summer intern last year?", "What projects did you do?", etc. The recruiter was extremely nice and the interview was easy. The phone interview by the recruiter just gave them an idea of your personality and which types of internships they could refer you to (based on your experiences, etc). Following this interview, I was reached out to by a certain 'department' for another phone interview with not the recruiter, but the main people who 'worked' for that department. The phone interview was also 30-40 minutes and they mainly explained to me what the responsibilities of the internship were. I had to try to understand a lot of unknown terms to be prepared to ask questions about the responsibilities.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    Takes a long time to go through the process. They drag their feet sometimes dealing with red tape, management and laziness. Managers were were quite full of themselves with no basis in the real world. Take like people who only worked at this company right out of college. No scope of life beyond their world.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Face to Face. Requirement was for application packaging @ FMR, Bangalore
    It was 15 mins interview. 12-13 mins on non-technical part only like the process we follow in current company. Only 2 technical questions. After Interview I was pretty much sure that it was complete waste of time coming here. I was assuming If it is a technical round, they should ask at least 10 technical questions to judge anyone. It was waste of time going for interview. Highly disappointed.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    1-on-1 phone interview with an analyst. Talks about background experience, technical questions (walk me through a DCF). It was a Quick 30 minutes. Followed up with final round interviews in Boston office. Case studies, very out-of-the-box questions, technical stuff, fit questions.. fast paced, quick thinking. Very hard to prepare for.. best advice is to read up investing books, blogs, and newspapers. You really have to go in with a good understanding of what makes a great company and be able to demonstrate your interest in the markets.
