Vice President Interview

Interview

The hiring process is lengthy with many rounds of interviews. The real trick about Fidelity is that most of the more senior jobs are already taken when they are posted. The hiring manager has their person in-mind when the position is filed/approved with HR. The HR process is very often just window dressing, covering for an invisible network that has already filled the position.

Interview Questions

  • With most mid-level management positions the expectation is that the candidate has already performed this job, and was highly successful at it. It is a catch 22, if you already have done this job and are successful and motivated, whay would you want to do it again?   Answer Question

Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Numerous interviews (8 I believe) at the SVP to C level so that everyone could sign off on me and no one person had to accept responsibility for the hire (should it not work out). Exhausting process but attained a very solid understanding of senior management.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe what information you need to be effective?   Answer Question
    • How would you restructure the division based upon what we've shared?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Again, a somewhat exhausting process. Do Not Back Down from what you believe you are worth because it could take 2-3 years for you to get to that level, and it makes a difference in the bonus monies (a percentage of base) and benefits level (once you hit $150K).
