Visual Designer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details This was an intense interview with 3 different folks from the UX design team. But they were all very nice and it went well for me. Each person was from a different department/line of business. I looked everyone up on Linked in to learn more about them and their role.

Interview Question – Probably what is more important form or function?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I worked with a headhunter so I asked for more and they accepted

Difficult Interview

Customer Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Morrisville, NC (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2013.

Interview Details You are first contacted by a recruiter from Veritude. They are very personable. They prepare you for the 2 hour interview process. Fidelity presents you with a Powerpoint demo about the company in a board room with about 6-10 other candidates. You are then taken one by one into a smaller room with 2 members of management for a 45 minute interview.

Reason for Declining – The offered schedule was 12pm to 830pm EST

Financial Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Merrimack, NH (US)

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2014.

Interview Details You go through 2 phone interviews with 2 separate recruiters. The first is just a simple phone screening, and the second is more of a behavioral interview. After this, you get moved on to where you go to the office you are applying at and you go through a 4 hour session consisting of a presentations on Fidelity, tour of the facility, a face-to-face interview with 2 hiring managers, and a critical thinking assessment. Keep in mind this 4 hour interview is a group of 10-15 candidates so do everything you can to stick out, ask questions, and be outgoing!

Interview Question – Typical behavioral interview questions. The tougher questions are in the face-to-face interview. Nothing specific was tough just know a lot about the company, how you'll succeed in job, your leadership skills, team working skills, etc. Basic interview knowledge to be prepared with.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined because I had an offer from another firm that fit my personal goals and current situation better. Would work for this company any other time. Excellent company, excellent benefits, and excellent opportunity available to anyone that succeeds!

Health & Insurance Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Albuquerque, NM (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2010.

Interview Details You must apply online, they will call you in for an interview, there will be no testing just a behavioral interview. You might have two people interview you, they will ask how do you handle xyz customer, tell us a time when you had tohandle an irate customer... those types of questions. Everyone is really nice.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself!   View Answer

Financial Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
Jacksonville, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2010.

Interview Details Applied online, got phone interview, got onsite interview, got offer 2 days later. Interview was conducted by middle management who seemed really important at the time, but I now make more than both of them and know more about finance than both of them after 3 years, so don't be intimidated.

Interview Question – Straight forward interview, no tricks.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable. Starting salary is $35k unless you have experience, but don't let that deter you because by year two I cleared $55k and year 3 I hit $70k. Lots of OT and bonuses. Bonuses are driven by customer surveys, not any type of commissions or sales tactics so they are pretty reliable.
