Junior Associate Interview

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA).

Interview

Talent recruiter contacted me, had a phone interview, and then an on-site interview. I felt great about the interview. It went really well I thought. I studied a lot about the company, prepared questions and even checked out books on investing. Guess it wasn't enough..didn't ask why they decided not to hire me because I was too upset. Definitely felt blindsided.

    The interviewing process was fairly straightforward, as FI knows what qualities they're looking for in people. They primarily ask questions about you and your background while they're simultaneously matching you with the role.

    Interview

    The interview was a very straightforward process. You first will do a phone interview and if you qualify you will receive a call to do an in person interview. They care a lot about what your goals and where you see yourself within the firm.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Woodside, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    One phone screen then one in-person interview. Pretty basic questions and the hiring managers are very friendly. They are looking more to see how well you fit into the Fisher culture, not necessarily how technically skilled you are. They do lots of on job training. I had heard they are slow in this process, but they went pretty quick for me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    Did a quick phone screening and was asked to go in for a face interview. The interview itself was around an hour. Talked to the person who I would be under, then to the recruiting manager. They asked some basic questions about my background, gave a description of the role and what I would be doing, then went over some company policies. After a quick background check, I was offered the job. Very quick and easy process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (Camas, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews to go through before having an in person interview. The first phone interview went fine but the individual administering the second interview completely forgot about it. It was frustrating trying to work out another time to have the second interview. The in person interview was three mini interviews with different department members.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave an example of a husband and wife that were both on their portfolio. The husband and wife disagreed on what they should do with their portfolio. The interviewer wanted to know what I would do in this situation.   Answer Question
