    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CME Group.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back and not as intense as one would think. They asked you a lot of easy questions about yourself and why you think you would be a good fit for the role. An understanding of options and derivatives was a plus.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 3 phone interviews and 4 in-person interviews which lasted 4 1/2 months from initial phone call to offer. Interviews were similar each time yet each interview was with different departmental leads in which I would be working with (dotted line in the org chart). Interviews were formal so definitely be dressed to impress. They go through TONS of interviews for each opening so find a way to make yourself stand out; I used hand-written 'thank you' notes for each interviewer, personalized business cards, and connected with each interviewer on LinkedIn prior to each interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very generic and often repeated from similar managers almost like they were getting their interview questions from a "how to" book.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate much at all...too difficult to get a job there so if you get an offer just go with it...they usually offer some of the best salaries in the industry so you won't be disappointed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    i originally submitted my resume via the campus drop (i go to a top/target university), and i received email from HR. phone screen and excel test. the entire process was extremely smooth and easy/straightforward. nothing unexpected. read the position carefully. you can usually talk to someone who has worked there or is currently working there to get a sense of the company culture. other than that i would say it is definitely a great place to work and i would consider applying back again in the fall for their full time positions.
