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.

Relationship Manager Interview

Relationship Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details I submitted three different applications and had one phone interview. Interviewer liked me and promised to call if moving forward or not. I am still waiting for a call to say sorry but we have decided to move on. Applying online is useless. I am turned off from Fidelity.

Interview Question – The questions seemed basic and no level of difficulty. Perhaps it was a ploy to appear professional.   Answer Question

Defined Contribution Representative Interview

Defined Contribution Representative

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in March 2011.

Interview Details I was first contacted via phone to complete a phone interview, which went pretty well. The recruiter I worked with felt that I had potential and gave me immediate feedback at the end of my phone interview before extending an offer for a face to face interview. Once I completed my face to face interview I was thanked for my time and contacted maybe a week or two later with an emailed offer letter. In the offer letter I also had to schedule a drug test and submit information for a background check and the offer was contingent upon successful completion of both.

Interview Question – I had the advantage of knowing someone who had just undergone the same interview process with Fidelity who helped me prepare, so nothing unexpected occurred for me personally. They asked the basic behavioral-based questions. "Tell me about a time when..." "How did you handle a situation when..."   Answer Question
