    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews. The first is pretty informal, they make sure you are aware that the position is a call center position, and provide you with additional information about the job. There is a few basic questions about your previous experience.

    Second phone interview is more formal. Many "Tell me about a situation when you encountered ---, and how did you handle it. " Most of these are teamwork or customer service oriented.

    A face to face interview may be given after this second phone interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line. A few days later, I got a phone call and then had a one-on-one interview. Within two days, I got an email inviting me back for an evening "meet and greet" session, set for the next week, which consisted of many candidates and several interviewers all in a conference room at one time. Everyone could feel the discomfort in the atmosphere. It was awkward, to say the least. During the session, the interviewers assured us someone would get back in touch with each of us by the end of the week (either way) and they did not do so. I happened to know a couple people who were also there as candidates and they have told me they did not hear anything afterward, either. Honestly... I am not impressed by this style of "interviewing" and now I feel the company lacks integrity because they did not do what they said they would do.

    Actuarial Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    i had an interview for the actuarial associate with 2 interviewees. I do not think they are fully prepared. They just asked me some basic resume staff, and they were done, maybe because they are not interested in me. I think they expect you to talk about your exam preparation process and how you are preparing for the coming one.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I had someone call me for a phone screening with basic questions for about 15 minutes. Scheduled a phone interview a week later that lasted a hour. They were mostly customer service related questions and things from past experiences. Interviewer said she would call back in a few weeks to schedule a onsite tour and interview with managers. A group of 10-12 people toured the facility and took some type of personality test and then met with a manager and a supervisor for individual interviews. Same questions were asked on the phone interview. I thought it was a standard process. Hired next day

    Financial Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First got a call from a national recruiter who simply went over my resume with me and talked about my experience, asked a few "easy" questions and set expectations about the job. Set up a second call with another HR person (this time local) who asked a lot of situational questions. They're looking for a lot of examples of how you provided excellent customer service. This job after-all is a glorified call center rep! Your dream job...

    After that I got called in for an interview. Probably about 8 other applicants. Took us into a room and talked about the company in a power point presentation! (waste of time). They pause during it and ask you dumb questions during the power point such as "What do get from that?" mostly wanting to hear you say some B.S. about how awesome the company sounds.

    Then each of us were paired off with 2 managers.(A poor method of interviewing) They again ask situational questions, nothing too difficult. Just have customer service examples. After that, they take you to take a test. (another waste of time.)

    After that, they will call you within 3 days telling you if you got the job. If you didn't get the job they will give you some poor excuse as to why. Out of 50 that they interviewed that day, they hired 3...

    Make sure that you have a degree that they want. I went in with a business degree but they gave the excuse that I did not have financial experience. This is a disconnect in HR. If HR does not think I will be a good candidate, then they should not have put me through to the interviewing process in the first place.
