Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Morrisville, NC) in April 2015.

Interview

Recruiters were at my school's career fair. Talked to them for a little bit. They told me to apply online. It seemed like they were trying to look for as many people as they can since it was almost the end of the school yea. After one week, I had one 30min phone screen. The talk was pleasant and planned for a final on-site series of interviews (2 30min behavioral, 1 30 min tech). Before the series of interview though, I was given a tour with a couple of other candidates.

Interview Questions

  • Behavioral were standard questions like strongest accomplishment, most creative, etc. The tech were related to Java. Seemed like they wanted to know the basics of Java such as garbage collection, keywords like static final etc, inheritance, object orientation, etc. Basically, stuff you should have learned from your first Java course.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2014.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter during a campus job fair and was referred for an on-campus interview the following morning. The process consisted of three one-on-one interviews that each lasted around 30 mins. The interviewers were all very friendly and mostly asked behavioral and resume-based questions. Overall, it was a positive experience, though I did not make it to the next interview stage.

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online. Consisted of a phone interview, a "prep" conversation before interview, and onsite interview consisting of 3 1-on-1 interviews and an aptitude test. Had to travel to New Hampshire for interview which consisted of an hour fifteen logical test and 3 half hour interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Ask about your programming languages and what you are strongest in, basic knowledge of the common coding languages, aptitude test will speak for your logical skills.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate - pretty good annual salary base. They do not reimburse for hotel stays however the gas mileage allows for breaking even on incurred expenses. Overall, very friendly interviews.
