    Financial Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    This really depends who the branch manager is. My was definitely challenging because I knew relatively nothing about Investments, I just had an interest. At the end of the day, they want to make sure you're a hard worker, team oriented, friendly, care about helping clients, and learning about the industry.

    Technical Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first met the recruiter through an on-campus professional organization. They gave a recruiting presentation at one of our meetings. I contacted the recruiter days later. She set up a phone interview to discuss my work preference, skills, and resume. There was a long period of silence (~3 months) until she could match my profile with an open internship position. I was eventually matched with a Oracle ERP software development position. She contacted me and set up a interview for next week. I interviewed with the team head. The interview was quite short, about 20 minutes at most. I emailed the recruiter immediately after. She set up a phone call for later that afternoon. She extended an offer the very same day! At the time of writing I am set to sign the written offer at the start of 2015.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were quite simple, but I'll record everything for sake of completeness.
      - Walk me through what you have studied, and where you stand (i.e., are you a sophomore and what classes have you taken?)
      - Please explain your past work with Hadoop. (resume specific question)
      - What work have you done with SQL?
      - What drives you to work with Fidelity and this particular position?

      Overall they were looking for enthusiasm rather than great technical prowess.
       
      Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate because they pay was very fair and my home is 20 minutes from the office so I have no living expenses. I simply clarified if the position was consistently 35-40 hour week with applicable overtime pay.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    I went to my college career fair and they had my resume. They emailed me to set up a phone interview 2 weeks later for the Technical Summer Internship Program. The first interview was mostly conversational. She asked me my interests and what I am looking for in an internship and the specified technical position. She was very friendly. She then said she'll call back if she finds a match for me.
    The recruiter called back in 2 weeks asking for a 2nd interview. It was a very short interview with the department head and a current employee, asking me about my work experience, why I chose my major, what programming classes I took and the grades I got in them. They asked me if I was familiar with SQL & Linux. Then explained me the position and type of work they do. Overall it was fairly easy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for an in-person interview after one phone screen, and it went well - they were going to offer me the job, but the in-house people, Veritude, interfered, and said that some manager had said something negative about me, so I wasn't hired. Fidelity is political, and I mean national politics also - and I was told if you are Jewish on your profile they don't like it. Ned Johnson sets the tone for the company...
