I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange.
Interview Details – three round of phone interview and then invited to Atlanta on-site. Meet around ten people and have two written tests. Interviews are not that hard but do combine tech questions and logic questions. Peoples are pretty nice and they will move to a new headquarter building.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in November 2013.
Interview Details – They tend to ask questions that are not directly related the job description. The questions they asked were generally:
Tell us about options
What do you know about derivatives
What's the in-the-money strike price for a straddle option strategy if the stock price is $X.
Tell us about the option Greeks.
Afterwards, I was given a very simple MS Excel test to do on my own. You can really Google all of the answers if you want to.
Interview Question – What's the in-the-money strike price for a straddle option strategy if the stock price is $X. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in June 2013.
Interview Details – Had to take a 90 mins written test. The test was more of trying to test "how good you know the syntax", rather than concepts. I believe I did very well in the test since I was preparing for pl/sql certification exam. But never heard any feed back from them. Which is very unprofessional.

Interview Details – The Hiring manager was very non-professional and refused my resume by stating that they knew my current employer didn't use their e-confirm system and would my currently employer want it? The hiring manager knew someone from my current company that had used this platform in their former employment and therefore wanted to know if my current company would be interested. No word about competencies or any hint that the hiring manger had even read my application at all.
Interview Question – No questions asked... that was the hardest! Answer Question

Interview Question – How would you test an application which has 1000+ fields on the screen and each of them come from different tables in the Database Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in February 2010.
Interview Details – Liked the office and company. Brief phone interview and online skills test related to trading/market vocabulary, math and concepts. That led to in person interview. Hiring manager did not seem very formal and interview took tangents that really did not seem relevant to seeing whether I was qualified for specific position I was applying for. He asked about specific operating functions of the businesses of previous jobs I had. Frustrating and made him seem a bit incompetent. Other person I spoke to seemed more interested in whether it was something I really wanted and what my relevant experiences were. He however was not in hiring role.

Interview Details – I got the call by replying to an ad put up in my college. I first got a phone call from a Lead Engineer of a team. He asked me resume-based questions and was interested in one project in particular that matched their current needs.
On clearing that, I got a call for an on-site interview. I was interviewed by the lead engineer, the team manager and the technical director. They were 3 separate interviews that focused on my Java skills. They asked me to whiteboard coding for a few simple algorithmic / object oriented programming questions.
