    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and within two weeks received an email wanting to setup a phone interview. This was rather general in nature. Questions were why are you leaving and why do you want to work here, what do you do at work, and other generic questions. Also, I was given details about the company and how its structured, A day or two later I received another email that now I would need to do another phone interview, this time with the hiring manager and another individual who I think may have been a department lead/director. This interview was technical in nature discussing technologies that i have experience with. Projects and specific accomplishments. we also talk about what their goals were and spoke technically about how I could fit into help them accomplish that. I think the interview went well and Im sure the interviewers would agree. However, based on some of the discussions that we had, think we it became obvious that this position was probably not the right position for me at this time. A day or two after the interview I got a call back from the recruiter with feed back from the interviewers. The process was very pleasant and I admire the communication throughout the whole thing.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    The initial screening was with HR to ask about current job and related information. The second interview was a phone interview with management. The third interview was in-person where you had three different 30-minute interviews with different department managers. They really all just asked questions related to the resume and past jobs, and would wonder off topic to try to find out your personality. It was a pretty easy interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions all seemed to be relatively easy and related to prior experience/knowledge.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. It was either accept the offer or not. My advice would be to not reveal your current salary. And make sure to make your desired salary higher than what you really want. They do not give good raises and you will be stuck at that salary.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    interviewed at Fidelity Investments in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I met a representative from Fidelity investments at our career fair. I submitted my resume and I got an email to schedule a first round telephonic interview within a week. My first round was a general HR call with general questions like Tell me about yourself, Favorite courses etc. There were a couple of questions on java like what is Final, static method, what is a class and object during the same call.
    Then I had 3 rounds of onsite interview.
    Round1: Technical:
    Questions: is class an object or is object a class?
    explain about Joins by taking any 4 tables as example
    Explain inheritance
    Explain garbage collection in java
    What are inline functions in C++. I told him that I have no idea on C++.
    He basically had a set of questions and he said he dont have any more questions on java. So I asked general questions.

    round2: Behavioral
    It was completely about my resume. He asked questions only about my summer internship.

    Round3: Behavioral
    Why fidelity investments?
    Tell me a challenge you faced during your masters and how you overcame it.
    This round was for 15 mins only.
