    Visual Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward with not that many questions that really tested a candidate. It was very straightforward, but complicated. You would meet with 1-4 teams and pitch yourself to them one by one. There is zero feedback and you either find out that you get the job or never hear from them again. Also their HR department is very unorganized, and while they profess that they really need talent, they are EXTREMELY picky for a company so openly desperate to get work done.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two-round interview process. One on-campus, one at Fidelity site. On-campus interview is dependent on the college or university. Some interns did not receive an on-campus interview. Instead, had two rounds at the Fidelity site. The first round is more resume-based. The second round is dependent on who you interview with. It may be resume, skill, or interest based. Overall very growing experience. Allows the interviewee to sharpen their presentation of themselves.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Formal initially though the interview and tone relaxed as the interview went progressed. No real gotta questions, more questions on the resume - more details on what I had done in the past, the job position, reason for it being posted, reason I applied and so forth. Most people I met were personable and friendly. HR people were busy but that was to be expected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    1-on-1 phone interview with an analyst. Talks about background experience, technical questions (walk me through a DCF). It was a Quick 30 minutes. Followed up with final round interviews in Boston office. Case studies, very out-of-the-box questions, technical stuff, fit questions.. fast paced, quick thinking. Very hard to prepare for.. best advice is to read up investing books, blogs, and newspapers. You really have to go in with a good understanding of what makes a great company and be able to demonstrate your interest in the markets.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was brought in for an in-person interview after one phone screen, and it went well - they were going to offer me the job, but the in-house people, Veritude, interfered, and said that some manager had said something negative about me, so I wasn't hired. Fidelity is political, and I mean national politics also - and I was told if you are Jewish on your profile they don't like it. Ned Johnson sets the tone for the company...
