    Interview Questions
    • When asked about the financial markets. I was interviewing for a IT position. But since what we are working with and who our clients are are those in finance, they were curious how much/little we know.   Answer Question

    The entire process was super fast and done within 1 week. Everyone were very helpful and provided a lot of information regarding the position.

    Interview Details

    I had a skype interview that was very informative. I feel like they asked more personality based questions than employment specific questions, which is good. Markit does a lot of training "on the job" meaning you have to think quick on your feet and bring something original to the table.

    Interview Questions
    • My interviewer didn't ask very many specific questions related to my role, she was more interested in how i problem solved and approached my tasks everyday.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Markit.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with the HR team was superb, with regular and informative communication.

    Interviews were scheduled with six different team leads initially, more were added later as well as a member of the executive team for final sign off. The interviews were short, two people at a time, back to back three in a row on my first visit. A second visit was the same format with fewer total people only a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • I breezed through this interview, there were no difficult questions as the interviewing team leads did not seem to have a specific format or any interview training. If anything I was impressed by their lack of preparedness when hiring someone at almost a six figure range.   Answer Question

    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Markit in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    They found my resume through my college career site. I had a phone interview with some idiot who had worked there for 3 months and was right out of college. After speaking I clearly realized I was significantly over qualified and stated that and thanked them for their time. Well they didn't get the hint and the individual I had talked to refered me for another position and they asked me to come in and interview. Once I interviewed I realized it was for another entry level spot and these individuals clearly did not look at my resume and after speaking with the two women I interviewed with they realized I had more experience than they did. I thanked them for wasting my time and I was ticked off because the woman I had been emailing with I specifically stated I did not want an entry level position like the previous phone call I had which she stated it was a mid level position. When they told me the salary was $30k I laughed because that's a fraction of what I make now. Total waste of time.
