I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Imagine Software (New York, NY) in June 2014.
Started with online C++ sent to me at home via email which stated that any reference materials could be used. The test allowed a limited time per question, but was quite easy due to access to information on the internet; one of the questions displayed a program and asked what the output would be, so I simply copy/pasted it into a buffer, compiled it, and ran it. Recruiter indicated that I achieved a very high score.
Standard phone screen ensued with technical questions of ascending difficulty, but nothing really hard.
On-site was at their office in New York, and a weird experience. One guy was possibly the best technical interviewer I have ever seen in terms of his ability to give tiny hints that allowed me to get past a small sticking point and demonstrate my understanding of other complicated issues associated with the problem, one guy seemed inexperienced at interviewing, and one guy seemed quite negative about the company itself and basically made comments that I took to be discouraging me from working there.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day – interviewed at Imagine Software (New York, NY) in July 2011.
I had to fill out an application while I was waiting for an hour. Then, I was interviewed by someone from IT, and not the person I was told I would be interviewing with. I'm not sure if he was having a bad day or what, but he was a terrible interviewer. I did the best I could with him, but he seemed distracted by the heat in the room & was sweating like he was the one being interviewed.
Was given a skill test, which was average difficulty. Unfortunately I don't recall any of the questions.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Imagine Software (Cleveland, OH) in January 2009.
Head hunter contacted me out of nowhere.
On-site interview including a skill test. Skill test is extremely easy: high school calculus, simple derivative/numerical methods knowledge...
A week later, 2/1 phone interview with upper management. Motivation questions/resume questions/B&S formula. Again, very easy.
Was offered the job a week later.
Only job offered at that time, no leverage to negotiate.

First round, two interviewers, one on the site and the other Australian man was over the phone. The process is very comfortable, nice and funny, the two guys are friendly.

I applied online – interviewed at Imagine Software.
Two days after the my application through E-mail, I got the interview invitation phone call. It was just to check out your application and settele the time for the first interview. The interview took about one hour. firstly, some basic questions to get through your Resume with emphasis being laid on your interest in this position. Then a simple test to examine some basic concepts about financial products. during the interview, behavioural questions counts about one third.
- How to measure different levels of risks pertaining to options. Answer Question
