    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I met them at our on campus recruiting event and had an interview shortly after that. We basically went through my resume and I was able to talk about my self. Then went to an on site interview. Had 4 back to back 45 minute long interviews. Same kind of thing, they let me talk about myself and my resume, they asked some behavioral questions. Then had a phone interview with a team leader where we went over what the job would entail along with another chance to talk about myself. Process took 3-4 weeks but was overall good.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Applied through LinkedIn, received a call 2-3 weeks later to invite for a phone interview. Received a rejection e-mail about 3-4 weeks after the interview.

    Interviewer was quite rude. He downplayed my experiences in an inappropriate way. I knew halfway through the phone interview that I wasn't going to move forward in the process and was very turned off. I have experienced interviews gone bad but this was easily the worst experience I have had.

    I was interviewing for more than one position so it was difficult to assess which skills to focus on during my preparation. I asked which role my resume spoke to the most and this question was dismissed since that "was the point of the interview in the first place."

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Applied through their website and heard back from a recruiter within a couple weeks to set up a phone interview. After this phone interview I received a call the next week to set up another interview. This, too, was a phone interview and once again the interviewer was very clear and friendly with their questions. Overall, it was an easy process and they were very friendly.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    There was a phone screening, then a more formal interview with HR, then another interview with bosses, and then an in person interview. For a company that specializes in client service, they left a lot to be desired when it came to communication and returning messages. They were also not very consistent.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at my big state U's career fair. We had a brief conversation. I gave him my resume and got a call back about two weeks later. Recruiter was pleasant and cordial and seemed smart, but a bit vague. Halfway through it turned into me interviewing him. While that's usually a good thing, and it did get me to the next round, I wasn't excited by what the company was doing or wanted from me.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call to set up an interview for a week later. The day of the interview, I received another phone call that we needed to reschedule the interview. So after two weeks of the initial phone call, I finally had my first round of interviews. Questions were very straight forward for the most part.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Interviews are relatively informal. Don't expect any technical questions. I had 2 phone interviews that lasted aprox 30-45 minutes. A lot of "walk me through your resume" type questions.

    Be prepared to speak to your strengths and weaknesses, tell stories of time you were a leader yada yada yada.

    The internship was great. They provided a lot of training and classes on the industry. The girls in recruiting are without a doubt some of the biggest rockstars at the firm.
