LEAP Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview

Digital Interview (One way). 6 questions, 30 seconds to prepare and 3 minutes to answer the questions. Although technically you have all the time in the world, they give you 2 opportunities to record your response. Don't bother with the first if you're stumped, let time go by and prep your response for the second try. There is no time limit while waiting to start the second recording. Good luck... FYI: Going through the interview process now and I made it to the next round.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Simple interview process. Began with a 20 minute phone screen, although it seemed that the recruiter was unprepared.

    A week later came a video interview, 1 behavioral and 1 technical back to back, 40 minutes each. The interview was pleasant in general, very nice people. Behavioral interview is more conversational, rather than plain question and answer. Questions mostly about the projects you've worked on, they ask you to talk about the difficulties and how you handled them, the challenges you faced, what's hard about delegating, working in teams, etc. I was project manager in a lot of parts in my resume and they asked me a lot about how I run my team and the difficulties about dealing with clients. The questions are really based on you and your experiences. Make sure to be ready to talk about EVERYTHING in your resume, even the small, unrelated things. I was caught off guard in that.

    On technical, they ask you about Java, SQL, and basic programming skills as well as the SDLC, particularly about Agile.

    The process was quick. Literally 5 minutes after the interview I got an e-mail asking me if they could call me and they informed me of the good news.

    Overall, just take a deep breath. The interviewers are very very nice and they try hard not to make you nervous.

    Interview Questions

    • What is an INNER JOIN or OUTER JOIN in SQL? How do you insert into a table in SQL? Reverse a String in any programming language. Code a multiplication table. What is a user story? What is a scrum meeting?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Durham, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, took 4 weeks to get back to me. Initial phone interview with behaivoral and some techical, then I had an in person interview the next week. Very nice people up front. Was given a nice tour, then I had the techical portion of the interview, unfortunately they gave me the systems architect as my interviewer, I thought I was going to be questioned on Java and SQL but we ended up talking about Node.js and MongoDB since it was on my resume. I thought it was just a chance to see if I could learn anything but it took time away from the skills I was actually applying for. Behaivoral portion was ok. My experience at fidelity its self was fine but the reason my over all review is negative is because they never bothered to contact me at all to say whether or I got the position. I even emailed the recruiter a few times and nothing. It's been 5+ weeks without hearing nothing so I know they rejected me by now. Just don't expect to hear back from these people at all if they don't give you an offer within a week.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, then one round each of behavioral and technical interviews (on same day). The phone interview was fairly casual, though the interviewer did ask a standard behavioral question. As for the onsite element, I viewed the behavioral interview as more difficult than the technical. If you know OOP essentials and can code at a basic level, you'll do well on their technical interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments in October 2015.

    Interview

    Negative experience, initially had a phone call that was 20 minutes late due to other candidates calls. Lady was nice but soft spoken so hard to hear over the phone. Was invited to do 2 30 minute interviews at my school, which I accepted. The two interviewers where managers at Fidelity, but seemed little interested in the company. There was a technical and behavioral interview., although the technical interview seemed more behavioral and less about what I knew. The manager who did the behavioral interview was very coarse, and ended the interview with no notice

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of interrogation style questions.They try to dig deep and this can get uneasy for some people.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Morrisville, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiters were at my school's career fair. Talked to them for a little bit. They told me to apply online. It seemed like they were trying to look for as many people as they can since it was almost the end of the school yea. After one week, I had one 30min phone screen. The talk was pleasant and planned for a final on-site series of interviews (2 30min behavioral, 1 30 min tech). Before the series of interview though, I was given a tour with a couple of other candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral were standard questions like strongest accomplishment, most creative, etc. The tech were related to Java. Seemed like they wanted to know the basics of Java such as garbage collection, keywords like static final etc, inheritance, object orientation, etc. Basically, stuff you should have learned from your first Java course.   1 Answer
