I have an interview coming up at fidelity, and I would like to know what to expect.  I’ve read all sorts of stuff.  Some blasting their corp culture, some saying it’s a great way to get into the biz, and others saying it’s just a good way to get licensed.

I’m assuming it’s a flat salary with some sort of performance bonus, but I’m not sure what that is based on.  Is it the same sort of sales driven thing as working in a wirehouse?

I’d really appreciate some clarification and guidance, thank you!

Haha, nice.  I’m just trying to get my licenses to move into a wirehouse, and get out of my current situation (bank). 

I have a letter and stuff into Smith Barney, who I interviewed with about a year ago, and I’m in the process of trying to get into SB, MS, ML, etc.

Valid.  Which is why I’m asking for guidance.  I’ll get more relentless
with my wirehouse hounding, and just feel out what fido has to say. 
Right now I’m getting boned 6 ways to sunday by my current employer.

My end goal (at least for the next 10-15) is to work at a wire, and be
wildly successful.  I’ve done very well at my other jobs in terms of
sales, and the biggest thing I need to work on is being more resilient
to office politics…
