Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview

Used a recruiter and they suggested that I try for this company even though I wanted to get into a tech company at first. I first had a phone screen before meeting with the hiring manager. Next, I met with another manager and then a few team members. I was asked about work experience, asked to solve some programming problems.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview has three parts: two behavioral interviews and one technical interview. Each part is about 30 minutes long. The behavioral interview is very self-explanatory. The technical interview includes basic questions about Java, SQL, OOP concepts and a little bit about web programming. The questions weren't very difficult. As long as you have good foundation in OOP languages and experiences in web-programming, you should do fine.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offered me a salary. There were no negotiations.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Merrimack, NH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had two separate 1:1 interviews, one with the hiring manager and the second one with his manager. They were well organized. They were looking for a very specific candidate with the perfect skillset who can hit the ground running. The candidate must present him/herself well and be well versed in being able to convince the hiring manager(s) how his/her skills will be an ideal fit for the organization.
