Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

Interview

Overall the process was straight forward, professional and prompt, except for the final interview.
It started with an HR phone screen, then the hiring manager phone screen.
then meeting the hiring manager. Ultimately coming back for an, HR, Group and Senior Manager Review. I feel that there are political undertones in the company, based on the process that many prevent, individuals from being hired.

Interview Questions

  • The general questions about honesty, individual work, reporting and work ethic are the opening to moving forward.
    However in the final interview, the individual was unkind and aggressive. I found the person pulling apart my experience and numbers in my resume. It was done in a threating and corrosive and unprofessional fashion. It was the most unprofessional interview in my career.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Was called by a recruiter from the CME Group, discussed the position and my background and my availablity for a phone interview. I went through the 1/2 hour phone interview with the manager of the group, went well. I came in for the interview with the manager and 5 other people, which took about 3 hours. Some of the people were laid back and some were very judgemental and rude. The huge disappointment was that I followed up with the recruiter and the manager and never heard back, which I found to be a bit unprofessional and arrogant. From reading other comments, that seems to be there MO, which is quite inconsiderate. I actually found I didnt get the job because someone else updated there linkedin with the job title.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at CME Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I received a call from HR after an employee turned in my resume. I first had a phone interview with HR that consisted of going over my resume. I was scheduled to have a face to face interview with HR and the hiring manager. The HR person asked me some behavioral questions about my previous experiences. I then meet with the hiring manager and another PM within the same group. Again it was a combination of reviewing my resume and behavioral questions. After a couple weeks of phone tag I finally got an answer from HR saying they were interested in me but couldn't make a decision at this point in time. I never heard back from them and found out they hired within.
