Customer Service Representative Interview (Neutral Experience)
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

Investments Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
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. From the feedback I learned that I did not prepared more examples. I repeated some examples on different questions.

Relationship Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

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 (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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
