    Interview Details

    I applied through their LinkedIn posting and got an email from HR based in New York 2 weeks later to setup a phone interview. HR went through my resume and asked me about my experience with SQL and relational databases.

    After passing the phone screening interview, I was told that he will send my resume to the hiring manager in Toronto who will contact me within a week to setup an in-person interview. I didn't receive anything from the hiring manager in a month. I sent an email as well as left voicemails to HR but they went unheard.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Progressed from 3 phone interviews to 4 30 minute 1-2-1 interviews.
    Communication good, but difficult to identify decision maker(s). Interviews a mix of experience and competency questions. Smart offices, but place seemed strangely dead and subdued. The employees I met were friendly, but, with the exception of the HR contact, were not brimming with enthusiasm or commitment.
