    Senior IT Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call a week later for a phone screening. A month after the phone screening I received a call requesting an onsite interview with eight people. The day of the interview I ended up meeting with six of the eight. Ironically, the hiring manager called in sick the day of the interview. Having worked in the trading industry for over a decade, I am well aware the industry has been declining for years. You'd think CME with their monopoly would be doing ok, but I got an overwhelming feeling from the people I interviewed with that the exchange was not doing all that well, which wasn't surprising given the current climate in the industry. Through the interview I learned that almost all of their development is done overseas in either Ireland, Argentina, or India. Of the six people I met with two were decent, the other four were not impressive at all. In fact, I'd describe them as deadweight. I never heard anything back after the interview, which didn't surprise me. I can say with confidence the interview was the worst I've ever been on and was a total waste of time. In the weeks after the interview I've spoken with my colleagues in the industry about my experience and all have heard similar stories to mine.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Dropped resume at career fair and applied online shortly after. About a week later, a recruiter reached out to me and we scheduled an interview. I was very sick at the time of my scheduled interview and the recruiter was very kind and rescheduled (unlike Groupon). I only had a phone screen. During the phone screen, I walked them through my resume and had a simple coding question.

    Interview Questions

    • It had to do with sets, reversing strings. The details are fuzzy. It wasn't too bad, but I wasn't prepared. I'm sure the interview questions after the phone screen are more difficult.   Answer Question
