    Investment Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camas, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA).

    Interview

    Applied for an investment associate and was flown out to Camas, WA to interview in person for three roles that were NOT what I applied for. Continued with the process after seeing some possibility for the client service rep role, and eventually talked with the VP and got an offer from him. Two weeks later, when they were supposed to send me details of the offer they told me I actually had no offer. I explained I had been given an offer, they were "sorry for the miscommunication" usually it required a chat with the VP before getting an offer. I explained I DID in fact talk with the VP, and when I was supposed to talk to him a second time, I was rescheduled FOUR TIMES for a 15 minute phone call that I ended up never getting. Overall a sloppy company with no dedication to its values. Also was disappointed when I went to their office and saw NO people of color, only white males with a scattering of women. Require a 50 hour work week, and to work overtime to meet those 50 hours even if work is accomplished and no overtime pay.

    Investment Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Gainesville, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through my campus' careers website. It was just a generic application (i.e., not for a specific type of role). A few weeks later, I received an email with instructions on how to set up a 30-minute phone interview. The interview was also generic; they're just trying to get an idea of what you like and then pair you with a similar type of role in the company. I have an info systems background, and she mentioned that those roles are particularly competitive to get. She was very nice, though, and the interview consisted of just basic behavioral questions. Make sure you know a little bit about what Fisher does and why you want to work for them.

    Recruiter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    From initial phone screening, to phone interview, to on site interview, to feedback, the process took over a month.

    Wasn’t selected for position which is fine, but the manager said it is company policy to not give out feedback after an on-site interview. This was baffling and insulting given that a good recruiter is a coach and consultant for their candidates.

    My assumption for the “lack of feedback” is that the company is retooling their image and doesn’t want poor talent acquisition processes to be known publicly.

    Fishbowl type environment where management is always watching.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    Positive, then VERY negative. I first met with a friendly representative at my university's career fair, had a casual interview where we went over my past experience and his background. Following this, I spoke to a recruiter over the phone, and we discussed my familiarity with Excel, as well as my past experiences again. She informed me that the company would let me know regarding my candidacy status within a week and a half, but never responded to me. I emailed her approximately 2 weeks after the interview requesting an update on the selection process, and I have yet to hear a response almost 4 weeks later.

    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.
