    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    After two phone interviews with Fidelity I was brought into their office to interview with everyone on the team I would be working for. I spent over three hours there. After about a week I found it curious that I had heard nothing from them, but decided to wait it out. After three weeks I reached out to find out that I didn't get the job. After investing so much time into the interview process it would have been nice to hear from them without having to reach out.
