    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    4 rounds

    1. Tech round - 2 case studies(telephonic)

    Face to face rounds:

    2. HR round(how do I fit in, expected salary)
    3. Tech round -2 case studies
    4. Manager round-going through resume

    Tech round questions were very good but I could come up with the right answers. HR round consisted of some checks to see consistency,interest in the role, whether I would stay with them etc. Manager round was less structured and was similar to HR round.

    Interviewers were polite,patient and helpful. Not much scope for negotiations.

    My offer was confirmed through a job consultant but it was cancelled the next day due to some reason related to background verification. This reason was very unconvincing and a stark contrast to all the proceedings before. Very disappointed at this turn of events.

    Interview Questions

    Contract Associate ERISA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was lengthy for no reason in my case it was spread over a span of 15 days. Interview timing was mostly afternoon or evening sometimes the HR left before time so no one to contact when you reach the office and kept waiting on certain days for more than an hour. Some really stupid questions were asked for the interview. Finally got selected after all the rounds. But was offered a compensation which was peanuts as i was a fresher that was the reason given to me.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Fidelity Investments in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a mail and call regarding opening from many consultancies .Assuming that there is bulk opening Replied it expected salary and notice period to one of them . they are more interested in "Form 16 " of previous companies .first thing they will ask you whether u have form 16 of all the companies if u don't have , they will not consider your profile. It seems if you have form 16 it is assumed that u will have all domain and testing knowledge. One thing more i noticed during interview process they will have opening for automation tester and they will call u even u are database tester and after taking 2 rounds of interview they will tell u that we have opening for automation tester .it really sucks..

    Interview Questions
    • There are three round of interview :
      1) Written test having testing , sql queries, english and aptitude test.
      2) 2 round of technical interview
      written was easy
      but when they started taking technical interview although the opening for ETL testing( not informed at the time of resume shortlisting ) and i was manual+automation tester, god knows how the interviewer cleared my first round of interview.

      at the time of 2nd tech round ,interviewer told me that opening is for ETL testing and asked me to leave. Not only me there were several others like me. it really sucks, if there is no opening for yr profile they should not shortlist your resume. Company shouldn't publish fake job openings to consultancies.
