    phone interview then once you pass that multiple personal interviews with different managers who are screening you as to whether you fit the position they are looking for. different managers are looking for different skills and different attitudes. they seek employees with a "will-do" attitude and not much experience with other companies for associate levels. however, they will go far and beyond for sales people.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Investment Associate position and was immediately recommended for the Account Executive position. It seems clear they have an immediate need to fill this position. Over all the interview process was good. The recruiter was helpful with answering my question and very straight to the point which I appreciated.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    After filling out the application, I was contacted very quickly regarding a phone interview (within a few days). However, the phone interview was scheduled nearly three weeks after I was contacted. During the phone interview, I was told that someone from FI would contact me, regardless of what direction they intend to take. From an applicant's perspective, this was good to hear, because some employers will not provide any feedback whatsoever.

    Applied through my university's online job board. Got a call back in a week to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was the questions were pretty similar to the ones posted on this site. Some examples are: why Fisher?, previous experience?, What do you think you'll be doing in this job?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview Details

    Process started with a phone screen, which was a resume walk through to determine whether you could hold a conversation as well as sell yourself. About a week later, and an extensive background application form, I was invited up to the Camas office. A flight, hotel, and car were booked for me and I arrived in WA a day before the interview.

    Interview consisted of 3 rounds with different departments but the processes were quite similar. Behavioral questions, tell me a time this happened, give me an example of that, etc. As long as you can think on your feet, you should be okay. Know your resume, know your history, know yourself and you should be okay.

    Last interviewer threw a curveball by asking a "what would you do" kind of question but because I had read other reviews on here, I was well prepared.
