    Retirement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter was the first step. Fairly informal screening type interview. Once passed that stage, interview in-person. For me that consisted of a presentation to a group of us (rah-rah Fidelity) followed by an individual interview with two managers. The interview was primarily behavior-based (tell us about a time...). Have lots of examples! The topics were fairly typical and relevant to the job and what makes a good employee - pretty common sense

    Software Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Durham, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone in HR. She said she had received my resume from a colleague and was interested in talking to me about opportunities at Fidelity. We found a position that I was qualified for and I did a phone screening with the team manager. She asked me to come in for a series of in person interviews. For the in person interviews I talked to one person via video chat in one of their conference rooms. Then I had a series of 4 short interviews, all one-to-one except for one, where I was interviewed by a pair of employees. These interviews ended with a one-on-one with the team manager. All interviews were fairly casual and conversational in nature. There was no actual coding involved. Be prepared to talk at length about projects you have worked on though. Lots of behavioral questions.

    Overall a very good experience--they make you feel at home which eases the pain of interviewing. I spent about 2 hours on location for the interviews.

    The HR rep that I was in contact with throughout the process was the best I've dealt with over the past several months I've been interviewing. She was on top of things and responds VERY quickly when you need something.

    I accepted the offer they gave me. It was more than I intended to negotiate for so I was very happy. I had my phone screening on a Thursday, the in person interview the following Monday, and they called me with an offer that Thursday. All told it might have taken 2 weeks from the time HR called me.

    LEAP Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.
