Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Boston, MA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

Interview Details The interview process was long, but also very quick. First a 45 minute phone screen with the hiring manager, then shortly afterwards a flight up to Boston to interview with 5 more people. They weren't direct flights, with short connectors which caused some undue stress on the way up, but when I landed there was a car to take me to the office for the interviews. First hour over lunch with hiring manager and her manager, 2nd with a VP of the group, 3rd with the Sr. VP of the group (which was cut very short), and last was with another VP in the group. After that they drove me back to the airport and I got back on the plane home. Offer was in my email a few days later, and I started a month or so after that. There were a lot of people, but at the time that is how Fidelity was structured - VERY top heavy. It has since been reduced a bit, but every interview gave a chance to look further into the organization which was EXTREMELY beneficial if you know how to ask the right questions.

Interview Question – I have a mess on my hands, why do you think you can fix it since no one else has been able to.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Quick and very fair.

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Durham, NC (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2012.

Interview Details There were almost no technical skill questions asked.. The process mostly glossed over my resume and asked about previous work experience.
They appeared to be more interested in how you would fit into the company culture and less concerned about what you could do for them.

Interview Question – I was presented with an odd question about firing all of the desktop support staff and replacing them with contractors.   View Answer
