Investment Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pullman, WA

Positive Experience

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Pullman, WA) in March 2017.

Interview

It was a very structured interview with some unique questions. The Interviewers give you much more information about the roles since it is an entry level position. They stress education a lot so it would be good to talk about that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Went to an info session and met the people that would be potentially interviewing you, good way to get to know about the company as well. Went to their booth at the career fair a couple days later and they had a system to register people for interviews there that would take place the day after. Went for a 30 min interview at the career center the next day with a manager. He didn't really ask me anything. It was really just a conversation and a chance for me to ask questions and show that I had done my research. I think its a bit of personality fit testing as well. A couple weeks later I got a call from a recruiter who asked me more questions about what kind of role I would want at Fisher. Sounded like she wanted to get to know my interests well so that she could place me in the right position within the Investment Associate bundle. She called again about a week later to set up a final interview in San Mateo but I had already accepted an offer elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    The first round was easy. The person I spoke to was very friendly and joked around instead of asking the questions like a robot. They asked about any conflict you've had in, more speciifcally in a group. They also wanted to know why you wanted to work at Fisher so make sure you have a unique answer for that.

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

    Interview

    Had a phone screening interview, followed by a skype interview, followed by an onsite interview. Got the impression they were trying to meet some kind of quota and not interested in actually hiring as interview process was rather expictided and impersonal. Didn't spell my name right.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Started with an on campus interview, then proceeded to have an over the phone and Skype interview. After these three steps, they flew me out to Camas, WA for in-person interviews. The super day consisted of a tour of the office, lunch, and 3-4 interviews. After that I had one follow-up phone call with a hiring manager.

    Overall, the process was pretty straightforward. The questions prior to the super day seemed very canned and unenthusiastic. A majority of the interview was them pitching Fisher to the candidate and describing the positions. The questions during the in-person interviews seemed more holistic and flowed with the conversation, which was a nice change of pace. The whole process has been pretty average, and could be greatly improved by the speed at which HR seems to operate.
