    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Very straight-forward and all in person. First one was with my manager to be, the second was with the senior business partner and the senior tech manager. Very professional and relaxed.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic PM interview questions, nothing surprising. Some "get to know you" questions, again, nothing difficult. Fidelity places a fair amount of weight on their culture so I know they were seeking to determine if I would be a good fit.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Video interview with questions popping up on screen. Very awkward setting and mostly behavioral style questions. Very easy, but weird style because you are not speaking towards anyone. Overall easy, because the questions were simple. Although, I was not chosen to further interview.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There was an on-site interview with three different interviewers belonging to a different team. The interview lasted for 1.5 hours.

    I felt that the interview was good. They said they would get back to me but didn't respond even until 3 weeks. I heard many other students receiving an offer but they never gave me any concrete answer. Finally, I got an offer from another company and when I emailed Fidelity again to see if they had arrived at a decision, they gave me a rejection.
    I felt that I was kept in the loop as a backup without any proper feedback or response from the company. They rejected me once I told them I have another offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on. Got a response literally the next day. Had one of those hirevu video questions. Just asking why fidelity, why your major etc? Than I had a hackerrank exercise which was probably where i failed. You only have 1 hour to complete 3 questions. I was not prepared. Than I did two video interviews one technical, and one behavioral. They haven't gotten back but honestly, if you have not recieved a response with 1.5 weeks, you were probably declined.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Twenty minute Telephone interview. I was referred by a relative and 1st spoke to an employee then he connected me to the human resource person who scheduled me for the telephone interview. She called me and then we scheduled the interview for the following week. I should have been better prepared. I thought she was going to ask more general behavioral type questions but I was asked specifics that I was unable to answer. I knew by end of interview that I wouldn't be called in for in person interview.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute phone call with a recruiter, 30 minute phone call with the hiring manager, and about a 2 hour onsite composed of four 1 on 1 interviews with the hiring manager and 3 engineer/architect/director.

    The phone calls were pretty much the standard behavioral questions like why Fidelity Investments, tell me about yourself, what you'd like to do, etc.

    The onsite interviews were most behavioral questions, but there was 1 "technical" round. The technical round wasn't based on problem solving, data structures, algorithms, team work or any of the standard technical interviews you'd expect. It was just a bunch of questions on specific parts of technologies and the expectation was that you would be able to read the interviewers mind and respond with the exact answer in his head. Other than the "technical" round, the other interviewers went pretty well; the interviewers were friendly and the conversations were good.

    Interview Questions

    • Unfortunately, I do not remember any of the specific questions asked in the"technical" round. They were a bit ridiculous. No SQL/databse, data structure, algorithm, concurrency, programming language specific, etc related questions.   Answer Question
