    Internship Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CME Group.

    Interview

    The interview process wasn't that bad. I got an interview immediately after talking to them at my university's career fair. The guy was pretty intimidating, but that may have been because it was my first interview. If you get an interview, make sure to keep talking about your thought process and don't freeze up - that's where I made my mistake.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CME Group in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was very straight-forward. There was a phone interview where we went over the résumé and focused on the projects I have done. Then it was a technical interview where I had 30 minutes to tackle a coding problem. After that there is an onsite interview at their headquarters.

    Had online coding interview. The phone connection dropped in the middle and the interviewer was not sure if the coderpad was working properly. Overall it was a bit of a messy interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter from the company and had a 15 minute talk about the position. We scheduled a phone interview with a Software developer which consisted of coding fundamentals questions and a 30 minute live coding challenge. After that interview, I was invited to interview with the company in Chicago. The on-site interview consisted of a coding question, lunch with 2 developers, a tour of the building, and another coding question. Overall, was a good experience, the developers were interesting to talk to, but I did not have enough experience as a non-cs major to qualify for the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The overall process was fine but for the onsite interview I arrived at the hotel and was asked to pay for the hotel through my own credit card because the recruiter was having issues booking a proper hotel. I have been waiting for my reimbursement for almost 5 months now. The HR department has showed a great deal of unprofessionalism in this regard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CME Group.

    Interview

    They are eager to get the intern who can work immediately. They didn't ask too much about the tools you know, but the algorithm and statistics background you have.

    very standard process, self intro, company/products, knowledge about the statistics and when you can work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by CME directly. Process was simple, a quick call after which they brought me in for an in-person interview. Both stages were fine, pretty straightforward.
    However, despite the in-person interview and a promise to hear back after a week, nobody ever bothered to contact me again! After reaching out to them 4 more times to see whether I was still in the running, I gave up. Nothing, not even a quick note that I was out or anything. Apparently CME has 0 manners (or at least their HR), or incredibly poor internal communication. Frankly, if they were to contact me again I would tell them to shove it, since I wouldn't even want to work for a company that treats people like that.
