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

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2012.

Interview Details

Started with a phone call from the HR Staffing Rep. Next step was a phone interview with the manager, then a flight to NC and and 5 hours with the team. Received an offer a week later. Entire process took a month.

Interview Questions
  • Questions were not difficult or unexpected. Each member of the team asked questions based on their fortes paying attention to my answers. Some of the questions were deceptively simple. If you didn't know your 'stuff' you'd miss the point of the question and answer incorrectly.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Nothing to negotiate. The offer was fair and thought through. I suggest you do your research on Glass Door so you know what to expect and the questions to ask 'before' an offer is extended.

    Principal Architect Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted in early June regarding interest. Phone screen conducted about 4 days later. Spoke to the hiring manager and discussed the details of the positions and what I was looking for. There was interest and a on-site interview in Durham was scheduled about 3 weeks later. The interview was 3 hours with 5 people on the architecture team. It was somewhat unstructured with constant room changes and interviewer changes. Simple questions that seemed fairly random, What are you looking for? What the role of this person involves?. I was told in writing that I would be re-imbursed for driving 500 miles roundtrip for the interview...... (what a joke, I keep asking about filling out paperwork for this and the recruiter avoids my phone calls and emails). What kind of a company is this? It took me exactly 4 weeks to get feedback about the interview after countless unanswered emails and phone calls. This was a big disappointment for me - I was expecting more from a global financial company. Compared to the other interviews I had, Fidelity looked good from the outside but resembled a train wreak on the inside.
