I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2011.

Interview

There were numerous interviews, one over there phone and two in person. They were highly professional and almost too stiff. It was more of a performance by the HR than an exchange back and forth between the parties.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Westlake, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was a referral. My friend had an internship there the previous summer and put me in touch with the recruiter, who put me in touch with another recruiter in my department. Since they didn't recruit at my school, which is in a city about 3 hours away from the actual job I had a short phone interview. It was nothing special, more of just getting to know me. I then flew to the city to have a 1 on 1 behavioral interview. This is somewhat unorthodox because I know they have recruitment programs with campus tours, etc... The interview was very basic, and almost enjoyable to learn about the job and see the incredible campus. I received an offer and am weighing it against other things.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. I got asked 3 of the most basic behavioral interview questions (strength, weakness, etc).   Answer Question

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was set up for the interview through a mutual friend. I went to the office to meet with the head of the department. The interview was very quick, about 20 mins, and was pretty basic. He asked things like, what type of leadership experience you have; how well do you work in groups etc. I ended up being declined because it was obvious my interest wasn't in the finance industry. He gave me this feedback because of our mutual friend.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Washington, DC) in July 2008.

    Interview

    The company called up for a phone interview after I submit my resume through someone I knew. Networking is really important to be able to get an interview. And then they called in for one to one interview and asked all regular questions. The people seemed very friendly and the office looked really nice.
