    Annuty New Business Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Fidelity & Guaranty Life (Des Moines, IA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very organized and extremely responsive to any questions I had about the job. I had initially been hired as a contractor through a staffing agency and was always treated as if I already belonged on the team. When this position came open, I was asked if I would be open to a permanent full-time position and applied for the job. Interview process actually occurred while working on the job and working hard to prove that I had the skills needed for the position and was willing to learn while being trained.

    Interview Questions

    • A question was asked about being detail-oriented and willing to work in a very manual position with very antiquated technology.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Well structured 4 hour long interview including a video conference with leadership in Des Moines.

    Investment Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidelity & Guaranty Life (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Phone interview, then invited for on-site interview with 3 of their executives plus a excel modeling presentation. One of the interviewers was unreasonably harsh with some technical questions that were very irreverent to the job, which made the process a little uncomfortable. Overall I'm not sure if I want to continue in the process as I felt the overall moral of the company is low and not very promising. Excessive work hours questions were avoided which raised a red flag for me as well as O/T requirements.

    Senior Investment Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fidelity & Guaranty Life (Baltimore, MD) in July 2012.

    Interview

    There are four rounds of interviews. The first round is over the phone. The second round is in-person. The third round is a 30-minute phone presentation of a potential fixed-income investment with HR person, Chief Investment Officer, and Portfolio Manager. Candidate has one week to prepare with a write-up, powerpoint presentation, and any other materials. The fourth round is a 60-minute presentation in front of the entire investment team. The entire process takes 2 month or more. Initially, company is very aggressive about pursuing candidates. However, most people never move past third round. The worst part is that the company completely ignores candidate following third round. Don't expect feedback, email, or telephone call after third round presentation. The candidate is left wondering about his or her status for the position for many months.

    Interview Questions

    • For the third round presentation, you need to decide whether or not to purchase a bond from a potential investment's fixed income securities. In addition, you need to explain why you made the decision. You will need to complete a write up, powerpoint presentation and other material.   Answer Question
