    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The total time took around two months of time. I applied online, and then two weeks later I got a link to an online assesment. After a week they told me they wanted to set up a phone interview. 30 minutes had behavioral questions and the other 30 minutes was an average coding problem. After a week they invited me on site, which was an hour coding problem, an hour for lunch with two employees, and then lastly an hour for a system design question. They also gave me a tour of the building. The coding problem was about as difficult as the phone one. The lunch was just casual chat about myself, and time to ask any questions i had. Lastly the design part was the most challenging one, and I did not finish solving and ran out of time. Everyone there was really friendly and helpful though if I had any questions they were quick to answer. A month after the onsite I was given an offer to join for the summer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CME Group.

    Interview

    Started with a coding challenge of 4-5 questions. Then was a phone interview with some behavioral questions/getting to know you stuff and one coding question and then finally an onsite interview which had a one hour design challenge and a one hour coding challenge. The coding questions were mostly string manipulation and data structure related however were not trivial. The design challenge was very abstract and I was not expecting something like that.

    Was invited to a phone interview one week after finishing the initial screen. The phone interview lasted for an hour.

    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.
