    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Orbixa in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called in a week after submitting my resume. I was interested as Orbixa is in the financial technology space. Two people interviewed me for about an hour: the technical director and a senior programmer. I was asked C++ centric questions and things about my past. All in all, quite simple.

    When I asked about what problems they worked on and how they tackled them, I received vague responses and a lot of hand-waving from the tech director. The senior guy talked about ancient tech. I had the impression that it was a pretty lightweight company.

    Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Orbixa in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was not as bad as I expected from other postings, but reading these postings prepared me well and I did not have some high expectations.
    The first part was a panel interview with two persons, some personal and basic technical questions.
    The second part is short test for basic SQL and some additional basic technical questions.
    For every candidate given about 10 minutes for in person interview and as much as you need for test part (all candidates write together in same room).
    The agenda of the company that they are not filtering Resumes so there are lot candidates one after second, I think they should do basic filtering in order to prevent wasting of candidates and their time.
    Some observation - the walls there painted in red and blue colors and frame of the doors in yellow - the gives some depressing atmosphere.

    Some advice about the interview - if you are going there - just recall your knowledge about basic SQL statements.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Orbixa in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I looked up past comment on Glassdoor.com before attending 1st interview. Just as other posted, use this as a practice site as you can walk in knowing this and don’t have the pressure. I walked in with precisely that state of mind.

    Received a phone call and was asked to go in for an interview the next morning. The person calling did not give his name.

    Approached the reception desk, saw my resume on the desk (which also mean anyone interested in my Bio can read it). While waiting for my interview, the receptionist took a break and someone that looked like a technician became the receptionist. Judging from the expression the technician look-alike has on his face, I believed he was very impressed with my Bio !! Too bad that he was not the HR manager. (this company do not have a HR department. They are actually much smaller than what they want you to think they are)

    As soon as I sat down, I was told the rules: answer 10 (or 12) questions, if you pass, then you move on to the 2nd interview. You are not allowed to ask any question unless you make it to the 3rd interview. Interviewer gave his first name only, no business card or any introduction at all. Answering the questions took 10 minutes and you are out the door.

    I already decided this is not where I want to work but accepted the 2nd interview 2 days later as I really want to find out more so that I can post it for other to read.
    Again interviewer gave his first name, no introduction.
    2nd interview was a case study. You have 20 minutes to present how you would approach the different scenarios they have on the case study.
    I noticed the trading room next door was almost empty today. I asked and was told the traders were send home because they lost all their money for the day.
    After the presentation, I went into another room to do some personality test question and was told to leave the test result with the receptionist when done. (Don’t expect anyone to thank you and show you to the door or you will be sitting in that room for the rest of the day).

    Overall impression is that this company don’t give a damn as you are only a job applicant. They treat job applicant as if they are a disposable item. The interviewer all seems to want to remain invisible. Although I can not put my finger on it, the atmosphere inside the office are also kind of strange.

    For those who need a job badly or a stepping stone, find out this before attending 1st interview:
    What is a short order (when trading stock)
    Name of some popular Windows and Unix database
    What is VLAN (virtual LAN, Google under computer networking)
    Experience you have with outsourcing
    What operating systems you are familiar with.
    How many concurrent projects you worked on.
    How many people are involved in those projects.
    What experience you have with trading.
    What is your salary expectation.

    For the 2nd interview case study. There is no right or wrong answer. They are looking for a specific response. Keep in mind their current setup is likely very unorganized.

    For the personality test, there are around 20 multiple choice type of questions. You need to choose among conflicting options, somewhere along the line like which of this best describe you: you are not a team player or you hate working with someone who do not agree with you. .

    Unfortunately I just checked off the answer randomly and never make it to the third round ( I likely had chosen one that said I hate accepting responsibility and I don’t like being told what to do) , otherwise you would be able to read about it ?.

    Good luck with your interview. Let me know if you land the job.
