    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    This company expects 4 interviews in the San Francisco office, then you are flown to Boston for 4-5 more and to meet the President. First there is an interview with HR, then a very professional email communication about scheduling a 1:1 with who you would work for . Mine was scheduled for 7:30 am my time which was pretty darn early . But the real agony was yet to come on the afternoon on interviews in the SF office .

    Interview Details

    Phone screen about my background and how I'd fit the position. It was then followed by an in-person interview. Met up with the hiring manager and went through standard interviewing questions. As expected, it is a financial company with very structured process. It will not fit well for people who like the flexibility or creativity in work.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward behavioral interview. Discussed financial knowledge and job description and my past experience and how it related. The interview was rather quick and was not technical whatsoever. I believed the interview was to get a sense of my financial background and past internship experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call requesting a phone dialogue. The first round was purely informational, and the second was an interview a week or two later with someone (I think from HR?). Very straightforward process, and they do make it clear it's a call center job. They're upfront about salary and the nature of the position, which is refreshing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviewas. And one in person interview. Pretty standard interview process. They were a complete pain about having me drive 2 states away for a measly 1 hour interview despite passing both phone interviews

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They won't negotiate. You start off at 35 which is awful I think it's 37 now. Which is lowest of the low compared to competitors. Also said I was an outstanding hire and I could start in may which was 5 days after graduation or June which would give me time to move to Florida. Said June. Then they declined and made me start a week after I graduated 700 miles away. Thanks
