    Interview

    Lengthy most of the question were really challenging , i was able to make my case, they really liked my resume and skillset. It was quite complicated interview than i would imagine. Overall happy with the way they conducted the video interview and the technical telephonic interview.

    Customer Relationship Advocate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    This was, without a doubt, the most unorganized and horrible interview process I have experienced. All thanks to the recruiter who I was working with (Brittany). She was incredibly slow to respond, inflexible, and unprofessional. It appeared that the job had been filled, by the time we had gotten to the interview (which, by the way, took a long time to set up, due to her lack of communication and inflexibility). Rather than being transparent and just telling me, she wasted both of our time. She even ran through what the training process would look like, and proceeded to cut me off during my question time just to tell me that we would not be moving forward. From start to finish, this was a horrible line of events. Recruiters are supposed to get you excited about the company, and ensure a seamless interview experience. She did the opposite. For those of you interviewing at Fidelity, steer clear of Brittany, or be warned that she is impossible to work with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview

    30 minute behavioral and 30 minute technical interview after a phone screening. Fairly simple: Who are you, what's your background, team work, projects, solve simple whiteboard problems. However, HR has a problem with communication as getting a response usually took days and a second email.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    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

    Customer Service Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westlake, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Westlake, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy but the background checks were stressful. Language of action if not told truth on application. My job offer rescinded although I was truthful throughout the process. Instead of asking me about the job in question, I was rescinded the Friday afternoon before I was going to start on Monday. I was told that my contact was ill as to why I hadn't heard. Background check took one week after initial offer accepted so I waited two weeks for my offer letter plus I went in to get my badge. Totally unethical and immoral to be turned down for speaking truth and honesty plus being told so late in the process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview

    Applied online, within a few days I was asked to complete a video interview (one way; answer prerecorded questions..make sure you have a working webcam and mic), from there I was asked to do a phone interview. At the end of the call I was told that I didn't have the passion for the role and that I would not be moving to the next phase. If you're going to interview, make sure you know about the series 63 and 7 in great detail, and if you don't already have them make sure you let them know how driven you are to get them.
