Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camas, WA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA).

Interview

I interviewed with two guys. The first one went pretty well. The second one, however, did not go so well primarily because, the guy interviewing me, was completely condescending to me for most of the interview. Not only would he respond in a condescending manner but he would always interrupt my responses and would usually degrade them and make me feel as if I was completely incompetent for this role. It was sad because I had a really positive perception of Fisher Investments as everyone I had met this person was nice and seemed genuine but this interview with this individual really sealed the deal (as in me declining the offer.) The fact that this guy is a team leader and I would be potentially working under his wing was enough for me to decline the offer they gave me. I understand if the interview was meant to be a little more intimidating or aggressive in nature; however, there is a very fine line between being intimidating and just flat out being a jerk and rude. This was completely unprofessional and unnecessary; the Management team really need to have a talk with this guy.

Interview Questions

  • The second interviewer flat out asked me, "You mentioned you recently graduated, so why haven't you been able to get a job up until now?" (A weird and rude question at the same time.)   3 Answers

Reasons for Declining

I'm not going to move all the way to Washington just so I can get constantly bashed by this fellow. It's amazing. All it takes is ONE person to ruin the whole thing. They lost a shot at getting an extremely diligent and dedicated worker.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. They mostly looked for fit and not your actual skills. Asked a lot of behavioral questions. Though, I felt like I was being attacked at times for majoring in philosophy. One interviewer asked me a ridiculous question on politics that I felt was inappropriate. Pretty much he thought because I was majoring in philosophy, I would engage clients on their political views, while conducting business.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Phoenix, AZ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very lengthy process, and had to talk to many people but was a positive experience overall. I had met a recruiter at a career fair and did not know much about Fisher Investments. She promptly explained about the organization and then began probing me for information to see if I was a fit. We got along very well, and it seemed like I was a good fit for the position. They scheduled me the first interview at my university before the recruiter even let. After that, there was quite a wait, but I was contacted by a talent manager and began the process of further interviews and setting up with a hiring manager. All together, they screen me through three people over 2 months before I even got to talk to someone important. The questions got increasingly difficult, and even made me pause. I think they know the exact kind of person they are looking for and if you don't meet it. They will tell you quickly. I am currently in the final round so one more interview then hopefully an offer. Overall, I have had a very positive experience with Fisher Investments.
