    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mesirow Financial.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by personal interview. Phone interview was very conversational with HR. Personal interviews sucked. The team doesn't know anything. They were arrogant and confused about the kinds of questions they needed to ask. Ultimately, only being good at coding counted, nothing else. They were looking for a yes-man who could write simple code.
