    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at CME Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I gave my resume at a career fair and I was called for a phone interview after a week. All the questions we on algorithms and data structures. It was also on java collections. Run and time complexities of all. We need to have them on our finger tips to be able to crack them.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CME Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university. The process took more than 2 months. The HR won't respond to your emails after the completion of interview. It took over 1 month for them a make a decision on my application.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were very bizarre and they didn't make sense. I spend most of the time during the interview asking clarifying questions. 2/3 of the interviewers seemed to unprepared.
      Example:
      Interviewer: "How you would store data?"
      Me: "Data?" (he interrupted me before I could complete my sentence)
      Interviewer: "Yes Data!"
      Me: "What kind of data?"
      Interviewer: "Stream of data."
      Me: "So your question is how to store a stream of data. What is the type of data? Integers, float.. " (he again interrupted me before I could complete my sentence)
      Interviewer: "Data is basically a combination of bits and bytes" (that does not make sense and neither did it answer my question!)
      .......
      To cut the long story short, after asking clarifying questions for over 10 minutes the interviewer told, "What is the size of an integer...is basically my question".
      I was totally confused as to why all of a sudden he changed his question.

    Quantitative Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    One of the hiring manager conducted a phone interview. The main function of the job is to pricing energy products like gasoline, natural gas, oil. She focused mostly on what's on your resume. Mainly your experience and what projects you have done in class. Not much behavior questions showing up in this stage.
    My advice is to prepare whats on your resume and hopefully you will pass this round.

    Phone Call, then in person interview, then a second in-person interview. I was excited about the first two steps and they went well, but the third was unorganized and strange.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CME Group in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and heard back about a week and a half later. Via email set up a time to speak with HR representative. We then set a time to speak with software engineers who were part of team I'd be working with. This was a phone interview which lasted about 25 minutes. They ask about past projects and then went right into Java questions. Difference between inheritance, abstract, and regular classes. Difference between a list and a set. They then asked a couple of questions relating to test driven development.
