Nothing specific was tough just know a lot about the company, how you'll succeed in job, your leadership skills, team working skills, etc. Basic interview knowledge to be prepared with.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a Fidelity recruiting staff member a few weeks after sending in my resume and was asked if I was still interested in the job along with salary requirements. He also gave me basic information about the job and said I would be sent an email for an interview soon. The interview itself was not bad at all. 2 interviews. About 30 minutes each. One with a manager in the department and then the manager of the fund accounting department. Was asked to talk about team projects in school and work. Also was asked about my past employment and the details of my previous experiences in work related projects and about work in general. Overall the interview process was one of the easier interviews I've experienced.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview process consisted of two phone interviews and one final interview at the location in Merrimack. The questions were very similar throughout the process.

They do want very detailed example/stories during the interviews so be sure to prepare before all of your interviews. During the in-person interview they will ask you around 8-10 different behavioral interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Give and example of a time when you gave an exceptional customer service experience?
      Tell us about a time when you worked in a group/team?
      How have you handled a bad customer experience and what steps did you take to change it?
      What steps would you take to fix a poor customer service experience from a previous coworker?

    interviewed at Fidelity Investments in October 2013.

The HR representative went over the basics of the position and asked why I was interested in the co-op. From there, a 90 minute interview was set up for a week later with 3 different individuals. I spoke with each interviewer individually for 30 minutes each. The questions were fairly basic, why you are interested in the position, walk me through your resume type questions. There was only one technical question the entire interview. They called me about a week and a half after my interview with a job offer.
