Very Difficult Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2013.

First interview was questions such as 'what would you look for when analysing a real estate investment opportunity' and character questions. very nice woman. Second interview was straight into maths questions, no pen and paper allowed. More intense.

Interview Question – Maths questions in your head only such as if you have 14 doubles couples in a Tennis Tournament, how many knockout rounds do you need to have your winners.   Answer Question

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details Quite dissapointing - the interviewer was a senior customer services executive, seemed to have very limited knowledge of the business itself, read questions from a list - it seemed like they were looking to hire robots who would simply follow instructions and would not even try to progress. But then again I guess in the light of what the job is it is understandable

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2009.

Interview Details I failed to make it to the next round, so I don't know much about it. As far as I know, the interview process should be very selective. That's all I can offer you.

The process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2010.

Interview Details Some behaviour questions, like teamwork, solving problem skill, being a fast learner etc. The whole interview took 45mins with one guy from HR and one guy from the business unit. Not much technical question involoved. The overall feeling of the interview was positive, but I did not get the chance to the next round.

Visual Designer Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Morrisville, NC (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in September 2013.

Interview Details You are first contacted by a recruiter from Veritude. They are very personable. They prepare you for the 2 hour interview process. Fidelity presents you with a Powerpoint demo about the company in a board room with about 6-10 other candidates. You are then taken one by one into a smaller room with 2 members of management for a 45 minute interview.

Reason for Declining – The offered schedule was 12pm to 830pm EST
