Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camas, WA

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA).

Interview

Very thorough process with a phone interview, skype interview, and an in-person interview in the Camas, Washington office. Fisher was very good with communicating and got back to me quickly with any questions I had. Spoke with mostly current account executives and managers who were formerly account executives. Questions started with them getting to know me and whether I would be a good fit with the firm. After that, almost all of the questions revolved around why specifically I was interested in a sales job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Plano, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    This was a very difficult interview process as they try to see how well you do under pressure. They ask prying questions that make you feel uncomfortable, so they can see how you react.

    I was originally contacted by a recruiter on LinkdedIn and had a short 30-45 minute phone call with him. It was very basic interview/get to know you questions.

    I then had a phone interview that lasted about an hour to an hour and fifteen mins. This required me to ask a lot of questions to be engaged and to seem interested in the company (which I was).

    The next interview was a video chat with two managers, about 45 mins each. This is when the prying/difficult questions started popping up. It seemed like there was always one nice guy and one really tough, stoic guy.

    After that, I was flown to their Texas location to have interviews with three people all about an hour long. They asked very challenging questions and very basic questions. I also got to speak to a current AE and get to hear his thoughts of the company without having any repercussions on my interview process. It was really nice being able to ask this individual questions that may not be best to ask a hiring manager (e.g. "Do you feel that you are treated well?")

    After that, I received an email asking for a background check. Once that was complete I got a call from the company extending me an offer.

    Things to keep in mind:
    They ask questions intended to make you uncomfortable.
    They know what kind of person they are looking for and are VERY selective.
    Be confident and trust that you are able to excel in a career like this.
    Don't let their tough questions shake you up too much-it's a sales role, so you need to be able to take the heat from a potential client.
    Always have a lot of questions prepared.

    Hope this helps! Good luck, everyone!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    Standard phone screen then a video interview with two managers. Company seems like a pipeline, other reviews were accurate in this aspect -- hyper specialized roles, take that as you way.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments in October 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone call then video interview. They chose not to continue the process with me, but after the video interview is a in person interview. The video interview is very intense, it's 2 hours straight of them asking you questions. I believe they really want you geared towards a career there, and I didn't subject my responses to that so I believe this is why I didn't receive an in person interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went really well! I had to log onto a Skype like platform and then spoke with a recruiter briefly, then afterwards talked to two separate employees. One was a hiring manager and the other was the manager for account executives. They both were very nice and easy to talk to. The questions were mostly about what drives me to succeed and my journey to getting where I am today. I was only asked a few questions about capital markets and the job itself. Overall it was a very casual interview and the Fisher Investment employees did a really good job at making it seem more like a conversation than a formal interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then webcam interview (a couple hours long) with upper management, then they fly you out to the location for an on-site interview if you are liked after the webcam interview. Interviews were fairly challenging, but i expected nothing less. Was pretty excited about the job until I arrived onsite and saw hundreds of people with their faces in their computer and no smiles anywhere, along with an interesting experience with one of the managers. The manager definitely try to play a little bit of an intimidation game during the in person interview, my assumption is to see how you handle under pressure. Wasn’t used to that kindve a style so be prepared to be hounded left and right with questions and have every one of your answers be challenged by the interviewer. Successful company that offers many promotion opportunities, however the company atmosphere could use some work.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    First interview was with a recruiter and the 2nd round of interviews was with 3 differ account executive managers. All managers were very transparent with what the role was and were also very personable. I enjoyed the process but wish I was more prepared going into it, it was my first interview so I wasn't experienced with the process but they made it comfortable and very professional.
