    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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Interview process was pretty standard. I had an initial phone screen with the HR recruiter, then went in for first round interviews. I interviewed with 3 different people and then had lunch with some of the team members. Lunch turned out to be another interview because I was getting bombarded with questions. Then I was called back for a second round and met with another 3 individuals. I got an offer a few days later. Pretty painless.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult. The interviews were all behavioral.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The package was pretty competitive but I was looking for more incentive to jump ship.
