Senior Audit Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2012.
Interview Details – Lady had a negative attitude when interviewing for an audit position. Didn't seem to care at all about my resume; seemed to be in a hurry and not interested whatsoever.

Customer Service Associate I Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and 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 Question – 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
Financial Representative Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Fidelity Investments
Interview Details – Contacted by internal staffing recruiter. 30 minute phone call with basic fit / personality questions. They just want to get to know more about your background and communication skills. Set up 1 on 1 interview with branch manager and now waiting for second round panel interview.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. Basic why do you want to work in this position and why Fidelity? Come prepared with good questions about career path and the job you applied for.

Financial Services Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2012.
Interview Details – First interview on phone was pretty easy. Then they take a group of 15-20 interviewees together and give them a tour of the office and a presentation on the company, then each candidate is called one by one to have a private interview with two HR employees of the company. After the interview, the candidates are taken to the same room to complete an aptitude test.
Interview Question – I hadn't had much sales or customer service experience, so when they asked about some examples for those I was kinda screwed. Other than those, I probably would've done better and been in the running for a position. Answer Question
Corporate Finance Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2014.

Second round was two separate interviews conducted in a room with 12 others applying for the same internship. Never received any communication after that.
Interview Question – No questions throughout the process were non behavioral, so no question was particularly difficult. Answer Question
Financial Services Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)

Marketing/Advertising Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2013.
Interview Details – Took a very long time to hear back between interviews. Phone and 1st in person went very well and I expected next level to be final and get offer. Took over a month to hear back that they started over and kept looking after more thought about position/client.
Interview Question – High level interview that felt very superficial, no difficult or in depth questions. Answer Question

Equity Research Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2014.

I think it was pretty clear by the end that neither my interest nor expertise was in the field - interviewer also sounded very disinterested
