Operations Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NASDAQ OMX Group.

Interview Details – I applied through college. After a week, I got a call for an in-person interview. Interview was mostly based on behavioral questions and my resume. It went very well. After that I contacted the recruiting manager couple of times through email and phone calls. I haven't yet heard back from the company.

Interview Question – It seems the interview was not scheduled properly. The technical people I was going to interview with, were not available.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at NASDAQ OMX Group in May 2013.

Interview Details – Interview Details: First received a call from HR asking general questions about interests and earliest date available for joining if required. She then fixed a date for a call with Team Manager for a technical interview. The Manager was very nice and polite. After asking some basic Java questions and about my graduate project, he explained neatly about the team and the role I would be offered. He then confirmed on the call itself that I was being offered the internship and that the process will be taken forward by the HR.

The HR asked me to fill up the required forms and email them to her, which I did duly on time. This is the problem started. Since I didn't get even a confirmation of receipt of my forms, I emailed her about the same, to which she replied after a week. After almost 2 weeks since I didn't hear back from her, I emailed her again. In the 3 weeks after these 2 weeks, I sent the HR multiple emails and even left voice messages, but she didn't give any update on my application process. When I contacted the Team Manager, he told me that he cannot do anything unless the HR gives some sort of confirmation (or worst case, at least a rejection).

Regulatory Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at NASDAQ OMX Group.

Interview Details – Initial phone screen by HR, followed by an in-person interview with specific group members, and then a final interview with a manager that oversees this group. Another person from HR called to discuss background and salary expectations after final interview. Also had to complete an application packet. HR was generally helpful and friendly. Entire process took about 1.5 months.

Interview Question – Questions were fairly conversational, mostly about background and why position was a good fit. There were specific questions about interactions with other departments, IT programming, strengths / weaknesses, and dealing with a fast-paced work environment.   Answer Question

Software Specialist Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at NASDAQ OMX Group in September 2011.

Interview Details – There was no phone interview. After applying for the position and not hearing anything, but still seeing the position posted I made some phone calls. Eventually networked into somebody who helped. Got a call for an interview. The interview was very informal. Focused on even though it's NASDAQ it's not a trading position. I need somebody yesterday. The job description was for installation and training for new clients. I was told that even though it's a suppot role, there would be cross and up-selling opportunity. Was given some info and asked to prepare a presentation and schedule an appointment with the secretary to come back in 2-3 weeks. Upon trying to schedule the 2nd interview, my phone call where I left a voice mail was responded to via email regretting to inform me that they were considering more qualified candidates. I called back (this time I got the secretary) asking if there was some mistake because I was already asked to prepare a presentation and come back. Got an email from the manager say that upon further thought, he was only considering people with 3-5 years prior software sales experience.

Interview Question – There were no particularly difficult questions. It was a bizarre interview. for a small department. I'm not even really sure I was interviewed for the position I actually applied for despite my pulling out the posting and using it for talking points because there was a sales position listed that called for 3-5 years software sales experience that was also posted.   Answer Question
