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 Details

    Campus recruiting, OCI, then 4 interviews in Camas, all behavioral. This is not to say it isn't difficult, because there is no right answer, you may say one word and they will DQ you.

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    Ordinary process, with a few questions about your actions in certain scenarios. Applied through my school's careers website and sent them an email with my resume. They emailed back and flew me out to Portland. They paid for flight and hotel and rental car. I went to tour the scenery before my interview on my own in the rental car.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Fisher Investments in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    After application, first phone interview quickly followed. I was put in touch with a hiring director. Phone call went well and set up another call a week later. Second phone interview with managing director. Call went well, director insinuated I would be invited for an on-site interview and seemed impressed my preparedness for the call. Company loves to use the phone, not email. I was expecting a call to set up my on-site interview when I was hit with a curveball and received the news that they would not be moving forward with my application. Very surprised given the feedback I had received.

    Interviews are behavioral. Feeling out who you are as a person and whether they can fit you into an opening/role. Looking for go-getter attitude, confidence, and personable, especially for the multi-faceted investment associate role. Investment Associate role is broadly defined and I did not have a good understanding of what the role entails. It is not an investment analyst or investment based role, but rather more similar to an account manager and client facing role.

    Overall good experience, I just wish I had some insight into where I messed up along the way.
