When I got called for the job, the person who called me over the phone for interview told me I will have to quit school for a semester in order to be successful in the training. I went a head and quit classes, believe me it was the hardest decision I ever made since I have only got the chance to start back the semester before but I believed the job was a great opportunity. Initially she told me to make up my mind and give her a call back and I tried calling many time with no response. I reached out to the first person who contacted me about the job and that's how she called me back. Then she went on to send me a test and once I did the test she called me back to tell me I didn't pass the test so I wont get the job. She really spoiled my entire semester and Ihave been depressed since then because why tell someone to quit school if there was so many processes to determine if I would get the job. I didn't even made it to training.

I interviewed directly with the hiring manager - the person I would be working for. Therefore the interview was mostly focused on explaining to me the requirements and expectations for the position, and some back-and-forth determining my ability and desire to do the job.

For quite a while the hiring process involved long wait times between phone interviews and in person interviews. My hiring process took 7 months from when I entered my resume to when I was officially hired

For external employees - it is more difficult to get in. Fidelity has a lot of custom applications for support. HR is pretty efficient. Fidelity takes a while to get back to you. But it looks like a lot has improved. I recently posted internally and I received update on a regular basis.

The interviewee must be above average in calculating, analyzing and communicating. Understanding legalese is a valuable bonus.
