    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Mateo, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    A headhunter hooked me up with their recruitment firm and it went from there. The process has been about 1 1/2 months so far. I loved every part of the interview. This type of business and atmosphere is where I thrive. Competition only makes you a better salesperson. I truly hope I get this position as I am ready to start with this company. They have a great story and have a lot of pride in what they do and the care they give the clients. I have been very successful in similar roles and ready to get back out there and pound the pavement (phone).

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    Really well laid out process, they have you come in and get a tour around the campus, then they have you in a room where you get to meet one on one with several hiring managers. I had three individual interviews and a tour and was there roughly 2 hours. Good impression.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments in February 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview after a career fair, phone interview a week later, with another phone interview a week after that. Got the sense they would hire anyone at all, ending up doing some research on the company and got a little turned off to it, ended the process. Talked about san fransisco office but it became evident they don't want you going anywhere but their Washington office.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Very simple. I applied online and a week later had a phone interview. The interview discussed my background and my interest in Fisher. A few weeks later I went in for an on-site interview. I met with several employees from three different departments. A couple of weeks later I had one more phone interview where they made their final decision. The whole process took a month and a half

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    They put you through a series of interviews. The first being 15 minutes of very basic questions. Second being a camera interview. The final interview they fly you out. You don'y apply for a specific job, they put you where they feel like you would succeed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Mateo, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very weird Skype process with very basic questions considering my background. If you apply for an associate level role, even if you've been out of school for a year or two, they ask about college hobbies. Not really typical for most companies in the Bay. This was one of the many reasons I dipped out of the interview process early. The second was they have very low pay and are not willing to negotiate, which makes me think the comments regarding hierarchy, and old fashioned approach to career advancement is likely to be present at this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career services department and I got a call a few weeks later for a phone interview. The interview was pretty easy; I went through my resume and past and there were a few behavioral questions but it wasn't difficult. I got a second phone interview and that was really basic and shorter than the first. I was called a week later and told that they would not be moving further with my resume. When I asked more about the position they dodged the question. If you apply here, you will probably end up cold calling people.
