Interview Details You will be contacted by HR after you submitted resume in a week. First is a simple phone interview for about 10 mins. Secondly, if you are selected, you will be scheduled an interview with 2 interviewers, each for 30 mins. Most questions are behavior. But if you got a tough interviewer, be prepared to answer some financial questions.

Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cary, NC (US)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in December 2013.

Interview Details Applied online and within two weeks received an email wanting to setup a phone interview. This was rather general in nature. Questions were why are you leaving and why do you want to work here, what do you do at work, and other generic questions. Also, I was given details about the company and how its structured, A day or two later I received another email that now I would need to do another phone interview, this time with the hiring manager and another individual who I think may have been a department lead/director. This interview was technical in nature discussing technologies that i have experience with. Projects and specific accomplishments. we also talk about what their goals were and spoke technically about how I could fit into help them accomplish that. I think the interview went well and Im sure the interviewers would agree. However, based on some of the discussions that we had, think we it became obvious that this position was probably not the right position for me at this time. A day or two after the interview I got a call back from the recruiter with feed back from the interviewers. The process was very pleasant and I admire the communication throughout the whole thing.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult in nature   Answer Question

Associate Systems Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details The process took a total of 4 weeks. I had a phone interview that was pretty simple, they asked a lot of behavioral questions and a few technical questions. I was able to be myself and the person who interviewed me had a great sense of humor. A week later I was called in for a face to face interview. I interviewed with 3 different managers, a total of 1 hr 30 min. The questions were pretty intense, specially the technical questions. After the interviews, they took 3 weeks to contact me. I was pretty upset thinking I didn't get the job but they offered me a position!

Interview Question – In SQL, what is distinct?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They did not negotiate, really good starting salary to be fresh out of college.
