I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2014.

Interview Details – Straight forward behavioral interview. Discussed financial knowledge and job description and my past experience and how it related. The interview was rather quick and was not technical whatsoever. I believed the interview was to get a sense of my financial background and past internship experience.

Interviewed at Fidelity Investments

Interview Details – Relatively simple first interview, very relaxed. Asked typical questions, like why do you want to work for our company? Where specifically would you like to work? What are your career goals? How do you think this internship would help you reach those goals?
The woman I spoke to was very cordial and seemed to really want to help me see where I might fit in rather than grill me.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details – Very general at first. It involved me talking about what I've been studying in school and how that knowledge helps me in areas relateable and non relateable to the internship. Then the interview gets technical to the point to where, if you paid attention in your programming and other related classes, and you understood the conceptual things, then you would be fine.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was called on a Saturday morning by one of the hiring managers stating she had obtained my resume from my college's career site and that she was interested in bringing me in for an interview. She told me the days and times they had available and I selected my best fit. The day of my interview I went to the office where they had a brunch set up for all of the candidates in that section. Then two employees from the company came and spoke to us "informally and off the record" about any questions we may have. The rest of the day consisted of 3 one on one interviews with 3 different people. One was from college relations/HR and two were managers in the finance departments. Overall it was mostly a behavioral interview and we went through my resume each time. There were no skills based questions.

The process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2007.

Interview Details – They hired me on the spot due to my knowledge of the company. I was lucky because at the time they were desperate, but Fidelity prides on people who know their business model and their culture. Therefore, don't expect to make a splash in your interview unless you know your stuff.

Interview Question – What experience do you have in this field?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Intern pay was non-negotiable. Based on what year in school you are.
