Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group.

Interview

Lots and lots of hoops to jump through--the entire process took a month and ended up being a complete waste of time!

The first round was a technical phone screen which quizzed me on a mix of relevant and obscure programming constructs (keywords, OO paradigms, threading, garbage collection, etc.).

Next came a timed take-home test, which took a couple of hours. After that, I went on-site and spent 3 hours interviewing with 4 different people. There was a mix of whiteboard coding and behavioral questions, nothing too crazy. At this point, they expressed interest in presenting me an offer, but wait, there's more!

Before I could get an offer from them, I had to have two more rounds of Skype calls with their management, and had to fill out a variety of forms: a reference check (yes, they called them), my complete employment history, and proof of income at my current and previous jobs (yes, seriously!). I felt like a criminal who had to prove his innocence before I could work there.

I'd also like to point out that throughout this entire process, they wanted constant reassurance about how great they are compared to other companies. I had no less than four separate phone conversations with them about this, and every time I gave them my honest perspective. I felt like I was dealing with a needy girlfriend, and honestly, it was a major turnoff about the company.

 To top it all off, the day they were going to send me the offer, they called me and told me they changed their minds. What a complete waste of time! I don't think I've ever felt as disrespected by any other company during the interview process

    I applied through my college. They scheduled an interview at my college. Was expecting technical questions but all questions were behavioral. Asked a lot of questions on my background and my experiences with transitions as an international student.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter for pre-screen. After that a Technical Screening round.
    Selected for onsite. Got very positive reviews on that. I liked the team as well.

    For final steps, the recruiter was super interested in knowing salary expectations. After a lot of declining, I mentioned a Range. That was it. Absolute no contact after that. Took multiple attempts to even get and update on the status.

    After two months of silence, my mail was answered with a generic reject.
    Negative Experience. Not at all recommended. This kinda reflects how they treat prospective employees.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through university career portal and received an email about a week later. Had an in person interview with two engineers. They were very awkward, the stereotypical engineer. Cracked lame jokes and felt very robotic or rehearsed. They told me about the company, ask me about my technical background and any projects. Easy but awkward interview. The position ended up being canceled so no one received any offers.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward and the questions were directly related to the job responsibilities. If you have one or two years of experience with programming in a high level language, you should be able to answer the questions without any problems. The overall interview was comfortable and the interviewer was nice and friendly.
