Financial Representative Interview

Financial Representative
Salt Lake City, UT (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2012.

Interview Details I applied through Glassdoor and received a phone interview a few days later. After interviewing on the phone, I was told how to prepare for an in-person behavioral interview a month or two later. Since I was applying for a position across the country, I flew myself out to interview on my own dime. There, I was interviewed by two managers, one of which was my future manager. I took a test after the interview and received a job offer the next day.

Interview Question – How will you handle living far away from your family and friends? Will this cause personal problems for you?   Answer Question

Systems Services Support Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Research Triangle Park, NC (US)

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

Interview Details Applied online via Fidelity website and was contacted by a recruiter within 2 weeks. Spoke with a Recruiter the following week provided an overview of the company, division and position and asked a few questions regarding SQL and Linux experience as these were necessary for the position. Interview was scheduled for the following week. I spoke with the team lead initially who asked questions about my resume and tried to get a feel for related experience. He also inquired about my Linux and SQL experience. After this interview, I spoke with another manager, primarily explaining my resume. After 2 pretty good interviews, I was informed a little over a week later they were going with another candidate. Overall took about a month.

Solutions Architect Interview

Solutions Architect

Interviewed at Fidelity Investments

Interview Details There were multiple phone interviews across a few months, which was a bit tedious. The first interview was with HR for the initial screening. The HR rep was not experienced with the role or the technical requirements. The second was with the hiring manager. I got the sense that the hiring manager was still trying to get approval for the role while interviewing as there was a bit of hesitation and delay.
