    Investment Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. They mostly looked for fit and not your actual skills. Asked a lot of behavioral questions. Though, I felt like I was being attacked at times for majoring in philosophy. One interviewer asked me a ridiculous question on politics that I felt was inappropriate. Pretty much he thought because I was majoring in philosophy, I would engage clients on their political views, while conducting business.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very slow process that took almost 2 months. They called nearly a month after I sent in my resume asking to schedule an interview. It took them so long to contact me I had to review the company as I forgot I had applied. They had a VP interview me first for a different position then the one I applied for, though he did not tell me what position it was. At the end he simply left, not leaving me anytime for questions.
