Working at a Fidelity Investor center
Being recruited by Fidelity to work in one of their stand alone branches. Anyone have any feed back or info about these positions? There seem to be a lot of people new to the company working there. not sure if it's due to a lot of new hiring or if the job is a revolving door???
They got a wicked employment agreement. Read, understand it very, very carefully. They have huge settlements against former employees.
Good place to learn, get experience, and I'm sure the pay is decent if you do well. I suspect though, that getting paid well there means you may need to do things that many don't feel comfortable with. Again, I just suspect that...
i worked for Fideilty, in a number of capacities, for 15 years. I have some experience in the Investor Centers. It depends on what they are hiring you for. There are many roles within the branch. I have some experience with the Branches. Personally, I don't like them. I find the people there to be overly snooty. Meaning, in my opinion it's ok to have an ego when you have a reason too; however, a pimple faced kid with slicked back hair working the front desk at a Fidelity IC has no reason to be impressed with himself!! I used to loose accounts from Fidelity to other firms because my customers who I referred to those banches didn't want to turn their nest egg over to some kid that looks like he belongs on Jersey Shore.
Also, the management of those branches have the attitude that you're lucky to work for them. Personally, I have not one once of inclination to work for anyone who thinks they're doing me a favor by hiring me.
Sorry I can't give a better review. I actually love Fidelity and would not have worked there for 15 years if I didn't. It's a great company. I just don't like the IC's.
I see what you mean, I jumped through all the hoops only to have the interview with the branch mgr canceled at the last minute. Seems he was afraid to have someone in the branch with more exp than he had. Guy was a rep at FSC for a year and them went to Fidelity. Somehow over 3 years was able to get the BM position. Having me come in with 10yrs in the biz more licenses and a few designations scared him. No wonder they have been trying to fill the position for a year. The job requires 5 yrs exp but if you have a day more than that he won't even interview them.
