Very Difficult Interview
Senior Investment Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Fidelity & Guaranty Life in July 2012.
Interview Details – There are four rounds of interviews. The first round is over the phone. The second round is in-person. The third round is a 30-minute phone presentation of a potential fixed-income investment with HR person, Chief Investment Officer, and Portfolio Manager. Candidate has one week to prepare with a write-up, powerpoint presentation, and any other materials. The fourth round is a 60-minute presentation in front of the entire investment team. The entire process takes 2 month or more. Initially, company is very aggressive about pursuing candidates. However, most people never move past third round. The worst part is that the company completely ignores candidate following third round. Don't expect feedback, email, or telephone call after third round presentation. The candidate is left wondering about his or her status for the position for many months.
Interview Question – For the third round presentation, you need to decide whether or not to purchase a bond from a potential investment's fixed income securities. In addition, you need to explain why you made the decision. You will need to complete a write up, powerpoint presentation and other material. Answer Question
