    Investment Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I went through 3 phone interviews with Fisher, starting with a general HR recruiter, then progressing to an Investment Counselor recruiter, and finally interviewing with an Investment Counselor Manager (hiring manager). After the 3rd interview, Fisher contacted me to complete a formal, online application (including regulatory questions, personal profile info like SSN & birthdate, and 3 industry-specific references). My contact told me the next step would be for him to circulate my file to several hiring managers, and then if selected for further steps, they'd bring me in for an in-person panel interview. Unfortunately, I wasn't selected at this time. I felt good about my interviews, but knew I would be in competition with others. The most frustrating part of this process is they told me the company's policy was not to say anything about the reason why I wasn't selected. No feedback at all.

    Interview Questions
    • The 2nd and 3rd interviewers wanted to talk with me about the economy, markets, etc. This was actually the route I was hoping they'd go, as I wanted an opportunity to demonstrate my conversational style of talking about investments, i.e., the way I would talk with a Fisher client as an Investment Counselor.   Answer Question

    got a call from the first lady as an initial screening. I was asked basic questions about myself. A week later I had a 30 minute phone interview with a manager. He asked a lot more about my resume, to explain all my internships and activities, why I wanted to have this position, why I like the company, my biggest failure...

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    They called me few days after I applied online and schedule the first interview in the next two weeks. I am still waiting to hear back from them next week. The interviewer seemed nice, but for some reasons she talked really soft and I could not hear her well. I guess it was because of the signal there I because mine was pretty good.

    Interview Questions
    • What was the most difficult thing you experienced in such position? What did you learn the most about the job? But most of the questions are pretty basic. Mostly they asked about your previous job.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university career fair and the representatives they sent were very nice. The recruiters were very good about answering any and all questions that I had and got back with me about the second interview phase very quickly. I flew out to Portland for 3 days for interviews (I met with 3 different managers) and they took us on a tour of the area and to dinner. The interviews themselves weren't terrible and the hiring managers were great about explaining each position you're interviewing for (I ended up liking the description for investment operations more so than the account executive).

    Interview Questions
    • Typical interview questions about strengths and weaknesses and personality traits.   Answer Question
