    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview

    Standard process beginning with a phone screening, moving to a phone interview, and finally an on-site half-day interview with 4 team members. After my on-site interviews, I was asked to do one follow-up phone call with the hiring manager. The offer letter came a few days after that. In all phases of the process, the interview questions were primarily behavioral and resume-focused. I enjoyed the process overall.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in March 2014.

    Involved phone screen and a few phone interviews. Then i was invited into the office for 3 interviews, each of which contained a "case" component and a behavioral component. Very much like interviewing for a consulting firm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Long! Over two months from initial phone screen to end of negotiations. It was very well organized so there were no surprises with each phase, but the wait time towards the end rounds was long.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, but there was an hour-long test to show day-to-day ability to solve relevant business problems.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate the title as it was flexible based on experience. Although I didn't ask for it, the higher title naturally brought a bump in salary as well as bonus potential which I assumed would happen (and therefore didn't ask for, so long as the title was given). I felt they really weighed my case and I appreciated the process (though it took about two weeks).

    I was mostly annoyed at the lack of transparency around the title / role and how they were going to scale the offer based on your background, until the offer actually came in (and surprised me at the lower end).

    I would have beendisappointed if I didn't get the offer, so can only imagine the other final candidate was turned off from the process.

    You go through a phone interview and then a multi-round interview process. Process can take weeks since there are multiple individuals in the process. If you are a final candidate, they will check your references. If all goes well, they will give you an offer.
