Customer Service Associate Interview

Customer Service Associate
Albuquerque, NM (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in July 2014.

Interview Details Do your research on company most questions relate to what you know about the company. Keep in mind, this is a group setting, your interviewing with other potential candidates, so do your best to stand out without looking like your in a competition, here's your chance to show your a team player as well.

Interview Question – The most difficult for me was when I was asked, "Why, I left (a very good position) the job I had prior to this". Truth is, I had a very bad experience with my ex-boss, and had a hard time working in the conditions I was put in. Being honest is important and it was difficult to be professional and honest without throwing my ex boss under the bus. I answered the best and as honestly as I could, and they appreciated that.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was hired at another company I applied for prior to. However, I would gladly work for Fidelity if I wasn't employed

Retirement Solutions Representative Interview

Retirement Solutions Representative
Westlake, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2014.

Interview Details You go through a phone interview and an in-person interview. Both are behavioral. The phone interview takes about 45 minutes in total. The human resources department will get back to you shortly after to notify you if you have made it to the next round of in-person interviews. The in-person interview takes about 2.5 hours in total. You take a tour of the facility and go through a PowerPoint presentation about Fidelity. After this you go into an interview with two managers from the department you're applying for. Once again this is a behavioral interview. After the interview human resources will let you know if you have been offered the job or not.

Interview Question – Your boss needs your help on an important matter, you are currently on the phone with a customer, and you are supposed to call another customer back in 15 minutes. All three matters are important, how do you satisfy all three situations?   Answer Question

Financial Services Representative Interview

Financial Services Representative
Englewood, CO (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2012.

Interview Details First interview on phone was pretty easy. Then they take a group of 15-20 interviewees together and give them a tour of the office and a presentation on the company, then each candidate is called one by one to have a private interview with two HR employees of the company. After the interview, the candidates are taken to the same room to complete an aptitude test.

Interview Question – I hadn't had much sales or customer service experience, so when they asked about some examples for those I was kinda screwed. Other than those, I probably would've done better and been in the running for a position.   Answer Question
