    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call requesting a phone dialogue. The first round was purely informational, and the second was an interview a week or two later with someone (I think from HR?). Very straightforward process, and they do make it clear it's a call center job. They're upfront about salary and the nature of the position, which is refreshing.

    Interview Details

    Their decision is based off 1 interview. I was told a decision was to be made 3 weeks after my interview (I was one of the earliest interviews behind another week of others). The interview was very relaxed and casual. Often during the interview the conversation would drift in another topic. If you list interests and hobbies, be prepared to elaborate on them. The interview lasted no more than 30 minutes.

      2. Could you explain your experiences with __________?
      3. Why this position?
