    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CME Group in January 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and two in person interviews. Pretty easy for the most part. HR was fairly disorganized and unresponsive. Had to reschedule interview several times and the process was really slow because of it. Need to improve HR.

    Interview

    Met at campus career fair. Nice folks. Invited that evening to on-campus interview. Difficult technical question for those not well-versed in basic data structures, but went well for me. Later invited to Chicago location for 4 interviews (two were informal, two were technical) and a tour of their Global Command Center. Seemed like genuine people.

    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.

    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 2 weeks. I interviewed at CME Group.

    Interview

    Phone interview to tech you out. On site interview. Nothing hard at all as long as your skills remain sharp and resume remains true. The people interviewing you are not big shots rather just down to earth people that you get the feeling care more about how your personality would mesh with the team then your skills.

    Initial Interview was just HR confirming my match to the requirements of the position.

They were of different positions within the department, from beginning position to the department head. All of them had some really interesting questions to ask about my interest towards my studies and the drive to succeed.
