Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2013.
Interview Details maths tests online and then first round of interviews. 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.

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
