    Application

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    4 Standard Phone Interviews with 4 Different People. Want to know your closing and sales skills. Then a face to face in San Francisco. Very disappointing taking a tour of facility to see virtual no visible minorities. This was a red flag. They have no physical office space in Canada. How will you convince investors to invest their 500K with no Canadian presence when someone has to compete with the Big 6 banks etc.... Wrong approach. May work in the US but not with conservative Canadians

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fisher Investments (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First, getting to the building was a hassle if you do not have a car. Everyone I met was very kind and courteous. You sign in at the front desk and then they take you to one of a few glass wall interview rooms. You speak to two or three people. They explain the benefit packages and answer all questions. The office itself seems heavily male dominated .

    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.
