    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Westlake, TX).

    Interview

    Went to the College of Business Career Fair, met the recruiter who was actually a Fund Accounting Analyst Manager. After he explained the position he told me to apply for the position online. A few days to a week later I received an email asking when I was available for a phone interview. Went through the phone interview process, and then received an email for a face-to-face interview. Interview consisted of mainly behavioral questions with very few technical questions. Technical questions include: What is a stock, what is a mutual fund, what do you know about fund accounting. (Hint: Know about NAV and how it is the bread and butter of fund accounting.) After that they say it's about a 2 week turnaround but they sent me an offer a week later.

    Negotiation

    Don't try to negotiate. It's an internship position. And it's way better pay relative to others.

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Merrimack, NH) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website and received a call for a brief 10 minute phone interview the next day. The HR representative went over the basics of the position and asked why I was interested in the co-op. From there, a 90 minute interview was set up for a week later with 3 different individuals. I spoke with each interviewer individually for 30 minutes each. The questions were fairly basic, why you are interested in the position, walk me through your resume type questions. There was only one technical question the entire interview. They called me about a week and a half after my interview with a job offer.
