I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 10 years)
Large, privately held firm with values that are reinforced at all levels of leadership. Career opportunities are ongoing and the vast majority of people at the firm will help you progress if you're willing to do the work. Fidelity provides exceptional benefits with options based on personal needs and various family situations. While pay and bonus structures are sometimes criticized, being patient will pay off for those who are willing to wait.
Fidelity retail is open 24 hours, causing scheduling conflicts for some candidates Career tracks within the firm can be limited due to licensing requirements, or lack of licensing flexibility in the groups
Advice to Management
Continue listening to the people talking with the customers. Review the regional pay practices more often, especially during tight labor markets in order to attract and retain the best and brightest.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.
Applied online, interviewed in person, offered position. Asked about applicable experience, took some skills testing, and answered some behavioral interview questions. The first interview was a panel interview consisting of several different managers and representatives from the call center. The second interview was with one manager and the team lead from the hiring team. Both were pleasant and I was asked your standard interview questions.
