Investment Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

Interview Details

Phone interviews. Basic questions and no surprises. Very nice interviewers and normal conversations. They also called very on time and the whole process was smooth. I don't think I did well on my second one because there wasn't as much synergy comaparing to my first one. So I don't think I got into the next round, but still a pleasnt experience overall.

    I applied online – interviewed at Fisher Investments in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied on LinkedIn. The process took 1-2 weeks to be contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview for the following week.

    The phone interview is 20-30 minutes. The recruiter asks behavioral questions and questions related to your resume.

    Although the job description on LinkedIn is vague, this position has different roles such as data analytics, dealing with clients, etc...

    The recruiter is a very friendly person, no need to be nervous.

    Interview Details

    got a call from the first lady as an initial screening. I was asked basic questions about myself. A week later I had a 30 minute phone interview with a manager. He asked a lot more about my resume, to explain all my internships and activities, why I wanted to have this position, why I like the company, my biggest failure...

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university career fair and the representatives they sent were very nice. The recruiters were very good about answering any and all questions that I had and got back with me about the second interview phase very quickly. I flew out to Portland for 3 days for interviews (I met with 3 different managers) and they took us on a tour of the area and to dinner. The interviews themselves weren't terrible and the hiring managers were great about explaining each position you're interviewing for (I ended up liking the description for investment operations more so than the account executive).

    Campus recruiting, OCI, then 4 interviews in Camas, all behavioral. This is not to say it isn't difficult, because there is no right answer, you may say one word and they will DQ you.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Fisher Investments in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    It takes a long time to go through each stage of the process. I had 2 initial phone interviews with recruiters, one onsite visit with 3 in-person interviews with different hiring managers, and so far 1 post-site visit phone interview with different hiring manager. 6 rounds in total so far and still no offer. All questions are behavioral based. The final phone interview was the most directed towards my resume and experience, no canned questions....his questions were specifically derived from my response to the previous questions.
