    I applied online – interviewed at Interactive Data.

    Interview Details

    They call you to set up an interview either with them or one of their subsidiary companies. They then have a 30-40 min interview where they ask you different types of questions. Most of the questions they asked were regarding the technical skills needed for the job, although they did ask some unexpected questions

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Interactive Data.

    Interview Details

    Out of the blue I received a call from IDC's in-house recruiter. She was very nice and enthusiastic. We set up a time for me to interview with two people. The first person I interviewed with was pleasant and knowledgeable and I could see myself working with them. The second person, the manager that I would be reporting to, was a robot. No personality, never a smile, and very rigid... practically inhuman. I was immediately intimidated by them and knew that I could not work under their management. Too bad because the company has a good reputation in my opinion.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    I had two phone screens, then followed by a coding quiz and then more coding quizzes. After all that, the manager terminated the interview saying that it wont work. After 5 hours! C++ and C developers are rare finds, so that was puzzling. The office was 90% empty after a big layoff. So I dont think they are actually hiring. I think the team sounded like they were all looking out for jobs. So save yourself some time, and dont go.

    EVS Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Interactive Data.

    Interview Details

    I applied via LinkedIn and got an invite to interview over the phone within 2 days. The initial phone call was with HR, with typical behavioral questions such as: walk me through your resume, why are you interested in our company, etc, and the woman was very nice and passed my resume onto the Director of Operations at IDC. My second round was held at their office in NYC, and the Director of Ops basically told me all about the history of the company, his history, and what the daily routine is like for the role I was applying for. Probably the easiest, most laid back interview process I've ever been through. The Director of Ops told me that he would schedule a final round for me with his boss, however weeks went by without any word from him or HR, so I followed up three times after a month only to receive an auto-reject email. Really awful experience, and proves their upper management includes insidious liars.
    Lesson learned: Don't believe anyone at this company when they say you'll be moving to the next round for interviewing.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked for detailed information on items from my resume on the second round. Questions were easy, but the hiring process itself is deceitful with this company.   Answer Question
