    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I had a current employee refer me. I submitted my application and 30 minutes later they called me to set up an interview. The HR person I talked to was very nice and personable, which is a nice change up from the arrogant recruiters that Fisher is known for. Most of the questions were very basic. I did mention that I was only interested in research and data analysis, and not cold calling, which I think he took as a turn off.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was contacted by a recruiter who found my resume online. Then, I had a phone interview for the account executive position. I let them know that I was not necessarily looking for a sales job, at which point the recruiter said he would talk to some of the other hiring managers to see if they would be interested in speaking with me.

    About a week later, they called back and said they wanted to fly me out to the Camas, WA office for in person interviews. They paid for my hotel, flight and rental car and reimbursed me for all my food. I went into the office at 8:00 AM to start my interviews. They gave me a tour of the office and then I had 5 back-to-back interviews with different hiring managers. They were just your typical interviews. Mostly behavioral questions and talking about your resume. Lots of good opportunities to ask questions.
