    Interview Details

    Their decision is based off 1 interview. I was told a decision was to be made 3 weeks after my interview (I was one of the earliest interviews behind another week of others). The interview was very relaxed and casual. Often during the interview the conversation would drift in another topic. If you list interests and hobbies, be prepared to elaborate on them. The interview lasted no more than 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Tell me about yourself
      2. Could you explain your experiences with __________?
      3. Why this position?
      4. You have listed ______ as an interest/hobby/activity, could you please elaborate?

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    You are greeted by two people in HR that take you on a tour of the campus. Bring your resume because they take two copies to give to the managers that will be interviewing you. You learn about the company and then get taken to another room to do your interview with two managers. After that you are taken to another room to take a critical thinking test. Got a call later that day to inform me how the interview went.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the managers asked if I would recommend he go to Harvard or Yale. He was looking to see how well I could ask questions to identify which one would better fit his situation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews. One short one to get information and another hour long one that went over typical interview questions. Straight forward and not a lot of pressure. Asked questions about experience and how you handle workplace situations. Don't need a total understanding of investing. More focused on communication skills and how you deal with people. Then hour long face to face interview. Group of 10 that gets a powerpoint presentation then break into one on one or one on two interview. Similar questions as in phone interview but more situational to dealing with clients and team members.

    Interview Questions
    • Ask what you would do if someone called who was upset about a previous experience trying to get a hardship loan and was denied of had a negative experience in general.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions
    • 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
    Reasons 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
