Administrative Intern Interview

Administrative Intern
Smithfield, RI

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in April 2014.

Interview Details – The process could be different because I am an intern and I knew somebody within the company. I came in, had one interview and then following the interview a few days later received a call notifying me that I was accepted for the position pending I complete their required drug test and back ground test. Back ground test took about 4 days and then a few days later had the test.

Interview Question – Top three strengths and weaknesses.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Didn't have to negotiate, I am an intern and receive a base salary.

FFAS Intern Interview

FFAS Intern
Smithfield, RI

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through the career center at my university. I received a phone call and then there were two interviews, one on campus and one on-site. The people I interviewed with were very upbeat, especially during the on-site interview. The company culture was appealing.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was what is your biggest failure. I was also asked about my least favorite class. The interviewers seemed to be trying to determine why I applied for the position and what my goals were with the job. My advice is to be very confident in your answers.   Answer Question

CRM Intern Interview

CRM Intern
Smithfield, RI

I interviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2013.

Interview Details – Intially, I had a phone interview where I was asked traditional questions about my background and interests. Then, I was brought on site for a follow up interview. I was treated to lunch which was relaxing for an interview. The interview was more of a conversation than a formal interview.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Smithfield, RI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online. Was contacted by someone from Vertitude, their in house staffing firm. Was asked a series of screening questions and then sent paperwork for a background/credit check, and a typing/data entry test. In person interview was scheduled about a week later. Initially there were 4 other people present and we were given an overview of the position/company and a brief tour. Then we broke off and were each interviewed by two people from the company. Recieved favorable feedback during and after the interview from the 2 that interviewed me and the person from Vertitude, but alas no offer was made, which was kind of a disapointment. I'd rather have been told 'no' from the begining, but allowed myself to get excited based on their feedback and it came back to bite me in the rear. I really feel dooped by them and they led me on to think that I was a preffered canidate only to get shafted in the end.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or difficult. Standard questions that you would expect.   Answer Question

Senior Database Developer Interview

Senior Database Developer
North Smithfield, RI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2010.

Interview Details – Usually a phone screen and then a face to face interview. The interview & decision process usually takes at least a few weeks.

Interview Question – Usually questions related to the technology you are being interviewed for. It was technical questions related to the Oracle database and questions related to the experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – My experience has been that the HR is negotiable only a little. Maybe a 2-3 thousand from the initial offer.
