Vice President 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.
- 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
Fido will be able to move up @10%.
Other Interview Reviews for Fidelity Investments
Vice President InterviewAccepted OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in February 2010.
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.
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).

There were several interviews with principal managers, then a full day of interviews with various department leaders. Overall, the experience was pleasant and the people were always very professional. Transparency is highly valued.
