I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CME Group in February 2012.
Interview Details – Did not ask much of technical questions until the on-site interview. Resume checks on 2 phone interviews. One with software engineer from the development team, and the other from the manager. Questions were not hard, compare to other top software development companies. Asked about Test driven development, which they seem to apply it to their project. On-site interview was okay, but everyone seemed to be pretty much depressed somehow. It just looked like a regular old company. Received offer within 2 weeks.
Reason for Declining – The company seems to have poor support for software engineers. Most of the engineers that I talked to seem to have little or no life. I could feel low morale during the on-site interview.
