    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Great company to work for, potential growth, great benefits and good pay! At least that's what I was told during the interview. I applied for this position and passed both the first and second interview process. I also passed the background and reference process. Generally, after a week or two you receive a letter or call from your potential employer letting you know your start date, etc. I waited a month to hear back from their in-house recruiter regarding my start date, but never received a call or email. I had to chase down the process; to only find out from their in-house recruiter they (Societe Cenerale) decided to make the full-time position I applied for a contract position. It get's better, the following day the same full-time position was posted on-line again as a FULL-TIME position. Lucky for me I didn't give my two weeks notice to my current employer, before assuming my position with Newedge. Possibly a good company, but lack of professionalism. New Hire(s) beware!

    Interview

    Contacted me after I applied through a career website and talked to a recruiter who set up an interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager mainly asked me about my experience with Excel, and was pretty friendly. Told me the job was challening, but they needed somebody full time for not just the summer but through December. Couldnt take it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview with HR was quick and to the point, and consisted of some typical phone screen questions. Following the initial phone screen, an onsite 1:1 interview was scheduled which I felt went well and lasted a little more than an hour. The final interview happened a few weeks after that and was scheduled to be with several other members of the team. The interview itself wasn’t very difficult and it also seemed to go pretty well. After several weeks went by with no feedback, it was finally communicated that the position was filled with an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Provided a FIX log and asked me to detail everything on it. Was difficult to do from memory without my FIX analysis cheat sheets I like to use. Probably cost me the position. I've since memorized FIX specs   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    A series of panel interviews with HR and Finance people. The finance folks were sharp...the HR folks not too.
    The org is really screwed up and after many interviews they decided to promote from within. It was obvious that the staff was overworked but also under-qualified for their positions. They were looking to bring in expertise to do the dirty work but not make the necessary changes. They made it clear that they wanted the payroll supervisor fired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online via a job board (monster, career builder, yahoo, etc.). Then I received a call back from their HR and had a brief screening interview that was a basic overview of my resume and background. What I had done in my past and what I was doing now and why I was looking to change. Then they told me a little about the role and advised that they were looking to get someone in right away and that the hours were a little bit odd (10am-7pm) and that I would also have to be available to work on Holidays. After still being ok with that I was then asked to come in for a face to face with the Supervisor of the department and with her Boss.

    The face to face interview turned into a group interview due to time constraints on Newedge's part. Both the supervisor and the Director were both present. They again outlined the role and that they were looking for someone who could hit the ground running. Someone who was proactive and could manage things independantly, as they would be working with one of their top tier clients as the main point of contact during the late hours.

    I provided examples of how I had handled clients in the past, how I had utilized multi-tasking in my job and worked independantly. As well, as how I had worked with a team and how I had prioritized tasks on the fly, in a fast paced environment.

    The only "negative" feedback that I received in the interview - when I asked for feedback from the director as to what he saw as any skillsets of mine that I might need for the role - he said - none - his only concern was that I might be too "over qualified" and he was concerned that I might not be challenged enough in the position. So this role may be best for someone with minimum 3 years client service, but no more than 7 years, and definitely no management experience or front office/sales experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were basic - the most challenging thing of the role was working or being "available" to work ALL holidays.   1 Answer
