    Investment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Dallas, TX) in May 2020.

    Interview

    A recruited called me after a couple exchanges via email. Talked about basic previous experiences and qualifications, nothing out of the ordinary. After reading the reviews for the company I really started disliking them. During the interview they tried to get me to talk bad about my last employer by asking the same question in different formats but really looking for a particular answer. They guy didn't seem inviting. Most of the bad reviews are right. This company seems like a cult of Ken Fisher and if you don't like his method and ways of doing things then dont work there. Seems like all decisions from investment to hiring decisions are made by Ken Fisher and his four disciples in his investment committee. The regional "leaders" who runs the branches dont have any decision at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    First I received an email from a jr. recruiter who set time for me to speak with a senior recruiter. The senior recruiter was more of an informational call for me to understand the job and to make sure I should move on to the next round. Next you meet with a hiring manager for a more in-depth conversation

    Client Service Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (New York, NY) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Three part interview, phone, video, in person. Very easy imterviews. Conversational mostly. Asked about why I chose my major, why I wanted to work in Finance, and what I knew about the company. I applied for a "launch your career all majors welcomed" position and then after my phone imterview I was recommended to the Client Services position and Regional Sales Associate position. Both these positions soumd nothing like what they really are and really need renaming. They're both operations based positions meaning high workload and lots of paperwork. The video interview was two hours and I interview with someone from both client services and Regional sales. I was then selected for an in person interview for the Client Services position. I was flown to Camas, everything paid for on their end, and had a short interview after a 20 minute tour. I was offered the position and an offer letter was sent to me that day. The in person interview was by far the easiest part. I tried to love this job! I really wanted myself to like the idea of working at Fisher and living in the Portland area. I declined the offer. I'm not sure why but I just dont trust Fisher investments. They pay much more than most places but really with hours worked youre only making about 19 dollars an hour. If health insurance benefits are extremely important to you then maybe its worth it because they pay for everything and have great plans. 401k is eh Ive seen better. This position was also in Camas, where the diversity os basically nonexistent. I couldnt picture myself there at all.

    Investment Counselor Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Process was to talk with a phone recruiter, then submit a very standard formal application and resume, which was reviewed by managers then to have a 1-time 3 hour block interview with 3 people including 2 group leaders and 1 VP overseeing the pool of teams as well as a mock client call with an unknown subject, though they did provide some "news" from years past it would supposedly be based on. All 3 people I met with were very cold, asked antagonizing question with a condescending tone rather than seeking to understand me or my background. The mock call was very difficult to assess what they were evaluating and was on a different subject than was communicated to me beforehand. While I had decided not to pursue Fisher after completing the interview day, I was also surprised to learn I was also not offered the role, when all 3 interviewers had told me they also hire people for this role with no experience, and I had 5 years of experience. Bullet dodged, I think.
