    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Markit (Boulder, CO) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Wall St On Demand in June for a jr to mid level software developer position. The beginning of the interview process went very smooth, was contacted and setup for a phone interview, and a day later they called me back to setup an in-person interview.

    I took the time off work to go to Boulder and interviewed with 3 developers. The 3 developers were very kind and the interview itself went very great. They gave me a 3 part test that was to be hand-written.

    Here's where things go downhill. After the interview we shake hands and go our separate ways. A week goes by and I have yet to hear anything from WSOD, or even receive an email. I give them a call to see the process of my application, because even if I don't get the job I would at least like to be informed of it. I speak to a lady there and she told me that they were very interested and most likely just going through the paper work necessary. This made me very hopeful and I was very excited.

    Another week goes by and I get a call back from WSOD from a different person, and this time he gives me the same speech as the lady before, that they are still interested, and that I'm still in the running but it could be 1-2 more weeks. Fast forward one week, and the same guy calls me back and tells me once again it could be another 1-2 weeks but I'm still a candidate. 3 weeks later and I'm writing this review and I have still yet to hear back from anybody over at WSOD whether or not I received the position. This is very UNPROFESSIONAL way to handle hiring someone.

    We are not talking about a CEO position here, this is a low level position that shouldn't require this much paper work. If they were not ready to hire someone within the near future, they should have not posted the job application on the internet. Not only that, but if they aren't ready to hire they should not keep stringing the interviewee along by saying they are interested multiple times instead of just saying "We found out we don't have the resources to hire anybody right now. Our Bad."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Markit (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of a brief "technical" test using an Excel spreadsheet. Basically just "if" statements and vlookups. Then I spoke with two different people (a VP and an MD) who basically just took time to get to know me. No typical behavioral interview questions "i.e. what are your strengths? weaknesses?".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Markit (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    First-round interview on campus with HR VP. Second round interview was at NY office - two back-to-back interviews with VPs from different departments. Perhaps because of the nature of the position I expressed interest in, the questions were pretty soft and not as quantitative as I prepared for - mostly questions to see if you researched the company, knew a few things about financial technology, etc. Usual soft-ball questions about why you're interested in this field, etc etc.

    Negotiation

    It was a summer internship - no negotiation process involved.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Markit (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    This was the company's largest intern class, and as a rapidly expanding company, they were trying to revamp the internship process, so there were kinks to work out. The interview consisted of some fit questions, but a lot of technicals - primarily about credit derivatives. There was an initial phone interview and then two 1:1 interviews back to back, both of which varied greatly.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? Where do you see yourself next year?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. Take it or leave it.
