    Interview

    Met recruiter at career fair, scheduled interview for following day. Finally heard back 2 months later- no. I didn't like the questions asked during the interview. They were very cookie cutter and stereotypical. For example, "What are your greatest strengths?".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Provo, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Met rep at a college career fair, the interview took place the next day. The interview was very relaxed with a couple of behavioral questions but mostly just a presentation about the company. Felt like they didn't actually care that much about getting to know me, instead they were just trying to sell the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Madison, WI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions that deal with how you responded in certain situations. Also, know your resume up and down because they will ask you questions about anything on there. The interviews at Fisher are meant to be more of a conversation rather than an interview and that is really how they felt, the people are friendly and very easy to build rapport with.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fisher Investments in April 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter calls you for a phone interview. Most of the questions ask about your interests and behavorial questions. There were no technical questions that I recall, but they will try to push you into doing sales. I don't think Fisher actually offers any internships where you actually build skills needed for high finance. I did not advance past the phone screen because I didn't want to do sales.
