    Did a phone interview that took about a half hour, pretty much went over my resume. After that I was invited to the Vancouver campus for an interview with three different hiring managers. Pretty conversational, and overall good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter less than a week later. She was very charming and easy to talk to and before I knew it I was being flown out two weeks later for an in person interview. I interviewed at their Camas offices, each taking roughly 30 minutes (two in total). The last step of the process is a phone call with a hiring manager that I'm waiting for as we speak. I'll update this with whether I receive an offer or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fisher Investments in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a very positive interview experience! The recruiter was very enthusiastic. He told me about the three branches of the company (I believe it was Sales, Data, and Operations) and asked which one I would fit best in. I learned a bit more about what Fisher Investments does and what the office environments are like.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    1st phone interview, 2nd phone interview, flown out to Portland where I interviewed with 4 different hiring managers from different departments. 2 weeks went by then I received a call for another phone interview. Another week went by and was scheduled for another phone interview. After the last phone interview I did not hear back for another 2 weeks until I reached out and was informed I didn't get the job. 3 months, flown out and 8 interviews later and no offer? I thought the whole process was completely inefficient and not fair to the candidates. I must say though everyone I spoke with was extremely nice. Amazing offices right near Portland.

    Did a quick phone screening and was asked to go in for a face interview. The interview itself was around an hour. Talked to the person who I would be under, then to the recruiting manager. They asked some basic questions about my background, gave a description of the role and what I would be doing, then went over some company policies. After a quick background check, I was offered the job. Very quick and easy process.
