    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Chicago Board Options Exchange in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter for the position. It was a great interview process and very efficient, however I felt like they could have been faster making a desicion. I had a phone screen with the hiring manager, followed by an onsite interview with the hiring manager, a group of peers, and the Vice President.

    Interview Questions
    • Vice President asked some very specific technical questions   Answer Question

    Declined Offer
