    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    30 minute conversational style interview in person with a recruiter. It was a very relaxed environment. After the in person character test and resume check another 30 minute phone interview was scheduled with someone on thier hiring team. Still in the process so hopefully the phone interview goes smoothly like the face-to-face interview.

    I applied online – interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Phone interviews. Basic questions and no surprises. Very nice interviewers and normal conversations. They also called very on time and the whole process was smooth. I don't think I did well on my second one because there wasn't as much synergy comaparing to my first one. So I don't think I got into the next round, but still a pleasnt experience overall.

    Applied on LinkedIn. The process took 1-2 weeks to be contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview for the following week.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gainesville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Camous recruiting. First round on campus, second one over phone, third one they would fly you out to Portland to interview if selected. Second interview over the phone with someone in Washington was almost identical to the 1 on 1 interview. If they fly you out they probably will give you an offer if you can pass the panel sort of phase in Portland.

    Interview Questions
    • Have you worked in sales before? Most questions were basic and not too complicated. A lot of questions surrounding ability to be on phones and interest in working in that type of setting. Be sure you're confident in your willingness to move to the west coast if selected. Second interview (phone) was very similar to first except a little shorter.   Answer Question

    Investment Counselor Interview

    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

    Interview Details

    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...
