I applied online - interviewed at CME Group in May 2012.

Interview Details – Got an email for an on-site interview with the team. The interview lasted about an hour with 3 members of the team. They asked me about my past experiences, and explained what the role consisted of. A couple days later, I was asked to fill out some paperwork. The following day, I was called by an HR rep with an offer from manager.

Interviewed at CME Group

Interview Details – The interview process was as follows: resume drop, phone interview, and then two rounds of in-person interviews. I made it to the second to last interview. I found the interviews to be pretty relaxed. It obviously helps a lot if you know someone currently working at CME. There were a lot of applicants for the position.

Interview Question – There were some specific questions about financial modeling in Excel   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CME Group in April 2012.

Interview Details – Received a conference call with two executives of the firm, who asked basic questions regarding previous work experience, course load, and experience in the field. Overall, they were very courteous, albeit a little detached, and gave the impression that they were simply going through the motions (can't say I blame them). All in all, a very standard, run-of-the-mill interview, for which review of typical questions ("Tell us about yourself," "what can you tell us about our company?", and the like) should be adequate

Interview Question – What do you know about our company?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CME Group in May 2011.

Interview Details – Met the HR in one of the info sessions and I forwarded my resume. She got back to me after a week asking me if I was interested. Then had a phone interview directly with the hiring manager (30 mins). I was invited for a 1:1 interview which too was a short, crisp and direct to the point interview. Got the offer after 2 days and ended up accepting it.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CME Group in April 2011.

Interview Details – I met with a recruiter through a career fair at my college. After the career fair, I sent a email stating my interest in the company and requesting to speak about available positions. About a week later, I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of questions about my experiences and interests that were directly related to the position. A couple days after the phone interview, I was asked to come in for a 1 on 1 interview. The 1 on 1 interview consisted of more detailed questions about my experience and ultimately seemed like a test of gauging my genuine interest in the project.
