    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Met with some HR people at a career fair at the University of South Carolina. They knew one of my friends that had interned at the company the prior summer so after talking with them for several minutes I was offered an interview. We then met the following day and talked for about a half hour with questions mostly behavioral or about my resume. Definitely a good company and a unique perspective for the finance industry being out on the west coast.

    Interview Details

    pretty basic behavioral question. Tell me about yourself, tell me your background, walk me through your resume.
    The position is similar to a sales position, it is not a good match for me, not much of analytical skills needed.

    Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by an FI recruiter through Linkedin a few months after graduating college
    Did a phone interview with the recruiter and expressed that I was interested in a job at FI
    Did a second phone interview with my would-be manager, took around 30 min, had a basic introduction to the company and a chat about my experience and the role
    Did my onsite interview after that. First step was a tour of the building, then three 45 min interviews with my would-be managers and team members. Different personalities and interview styles but overall I felt treated well and I was given plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The interview was a long one though.
    Was contacted the next week with a job offer.
    I tried to negotiate but was informed salaries were non-negotiable. Was offered $45,000. It seems decent but employees work 10hr weeks. All in all, without over time, hourly is around $15.50/hr. Not that great but there seemed to be a lot of growth potential and good benefits.

    I took the offer and after my first week I am noticing that at the firm the longer you stay the more you make, regardless of what role it actually is because everyone moves around so much. Seniority matters.

    Account Executive - Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    First off, I received a phone call from a recruiter. We spoke for roughly 25 minutes. About a week later, I received an email from the same recruiter letting me know that they wanted me to come in. For the in-person interview, I first interviewed with the recruiter for about thirty minutes. After that, I sat with two AE Team Leader's (back to back) for about forty minutes each. Lastly, I sat with the AE Group Vice President for about forty-five minutes. The three interviews after sitting with the recruiter were pretty standard. In my opinion, it was more of an attempt to figure out if you can be personable, while carrying a conversation. I've heard that my interview was actually different from others moving forward.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to go through my resume and briefly explain what I did, and give a time where I faced some adversity.   Answer Question

    Low base, but commissions can easily make up for it. If you like sales, you very could like this position.
