    DevOps/Release Management - Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied through a Recruiting Consultant from BrightWell Technology. The consultant asked me about my experience and asked me one technical question. After 24 hours, I have received an invitation for an on-site interview.

    On the day of the on-site interview, I was sitting across 5 people: 2 persons from the Engineer department, 1 person from HR and another 2 persons from Management. The on-site interview started with a description of the position and what will be handled on a daily basis. After 10 minutes, I was asked 4 questions on a white board - 1 question about SQL that spitted into 2 parts, 2 questions about Java and another question about BASH. In the last 20 minutes, I was asked about my experience at my last position.

    A week later, I have received a positive feedback about my performance from the Recruiting Consultant. However, I was not given an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One of the worst interview experiences in my entire career. A lot of behavioral interview questions which were I believe unrelated to the position description and my experience.

    On my previous jobs I interviewed a lot of people myself. But here I'm not even able to say where it's going to and what do they want to hear from candidates.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by ICE Hiring staff and gave me all the basic talk and what to expect. When I did the interview (camera record) I sent it and the next day I was emailed and was told to do another one. I contacted the Hiring staff and explained what happened if I need to redo my interview or not. No answer from them what so ever. I reached out again a week later, no answer. Very unprofessional. If I am ever contacted by ICE, I am more than happy to let them know who I spoke to in the Hiring staff dept that is being unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    After 2 months and 4 rounds of interviews, I had to ask if an offer was forthcoming, only to get a one-line snotty response from HR. They strung me along and wasted so much of my time and energy. The manager was very rude and disrespectful during the final interview, trying to prove to everyone that he was such an expert, while laughing at my responses.
