    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    They are really looking for consistency. I had four parts to complete in the AC which were a group exercise, a presentation (you get the topic 1 week prior to the AC), an interview, and a case study. One cannot really prepare for 1,2, and 4 but you really have to nail the presentation and know everything about what you are talking. I put in less effort and didnt get the job only because of that even though they told me that I outperformed the rest in 2 and 4 by far.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    Standard process beginning with a phone screening, moving to a phone interview, and finally an on-site half-day interview with 4 team members. After my on-site interviews, I was asked to do one follow-up phone call with the hiring manager. The offer letter came a few days after that. In all phases of the process, the interview questions were primarily behavioral and resume-focused. I enjoyed the process overall.

    Information Security Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position in September and got a request for an interview in December, so that process took awhile, but once I scheduled the phone interview -- things moved much more quickly. At first, I spoke with a staffing consultant (Tiffany) and all we talked about was what I needed from the internship and what I would like to do. She told me that it may take a couple weeks to find a hiring manager who thinks they can fit my needs, but I ended up being chosen by the Information Security team to be interviewed within an hour. I scheduled a second interview with the IS guy that Monday, nailed it, and was offered the job 10 minutes about the second interview was over.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were expected, but I guess the hardest would've been what I wanted to get out of the internship. Not because it was a hard question, but because there were dozens of things I wanted out of it.   Answer Question
