    Senior Manager/Director Level Role Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    This was the most ridiculous interview process in my career. Things started out well, the internal recruiter did his phone screen, took a week to get back to me and then we meet in the NYC office, along with meeting a few others in the teams. The issues came when it was time to be schedule for a 2nd round with the hiring manager in the Connecticut offices. I was asked to change my travel plans to make this meeting (I was in town from another market, I don't live in NYC). So, after changing my travel plans I jumped on a train from the city to the nearest CT Stop, to then take a taxi for 20 minutes to the office. Being on the train on time, I got a email asking if I could cancel my trip because the hiring manager couldn't make the meeting. No, I cannot, Im already on the train. Turns out, the recruiter got the Hiring Manager back on the phone to commit to the meeting. I showed up to the office on time, as professionals do. Waited for a bit, and the hiring manager (who is in HR mind you); comes to the lobby, clearly annoyed and frustrated that she even has to be there for this meeting. Something that was pre-arranged, and in her calendar. As a candidate and someone who believes in the candidate experience, this was a horrible welcome and feeling. The interview was 30 minutes, where she asked pretty basic questions, with her arms folded, and a annoyed look on her face. Really pleasant! The role has been one 2 times in 18 months, and the current search to hire has been open for over 6 months. I wonder why? The icing on the cake was when I went to send the recruiter my expenses. He stated that NASDAQ does'nt expense candidate expenses if they are "regional". My response? I am not regional, I changed my flight to make this meeting and took trains and taxis to show up on time and be present and ready; only to have a horrible experience with a less than professional hiring manager. Nadsaq, you really don't expense candidate expenses? That is ridiculous, and completely unprofessional. NO ONE should pay you, to interview with you. You are not that unique. My advice to to seriously look at your internal Hiring Managers, especially within HR, and treat your candidates as you would your customers that pay your salaries. Novel idea, isn't it?

    Application

    Interview

    I got an email form a software engineer from Nasdaq mentioning that my resume has been for the software developer Internship position. After setting up the interview at their New York office I was not really sure about what questions to expect about the Trading Support Systems position being a CS student. I did my best preparation of my skills on my resume and was hoping that the interview questions to revolve around my resume ad related knowledge which did happen.

    Overall the experience was invaluable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very weird experience. Had six interviews. HR, Hiring Manager (supervisor of this position - phone and in-person), VP of Global Mktg. and CMO (in -person) - including an intensive homework assignment and presentation given. They professed extreme interest and then boom! Radio-silence for 2-1/2 mo. This after being told they would get back to me in a couple of days. Checked in before the holidays and told that with vacations etc. it was being pushed until after the first of the year. Periodic check-ins after the holidays were either not answered or I was told "we should know more by next week," "we should know more in a few days and you are one of the top candidates" "sorry for the delay but we'll know Wed. but you are one of the final three candidates." This over a period of months.

    A couple of weeks would pass before I would check in again to try and get any sort of idea of what was going on. Last check-in I said I was very confused by the delay and just need to know something since I have other jobs that I'm interviewing for etc. and need to know if this is in play. The response was even weirder. "I'm told that the job is on temporary hold and you were one of the top candidates but they are exploring making an offer to someone else. Don't turn down any other offers because of our delays. But I'll know for sure by next week." Is the job on hold or are they offering it to someone else??" It was a HUGE cluster. Still is. Makes me not want to work there if they can't even manage a hiring process.

    The CMO was excellent and has a great vision for the company's marketing future and the VP of Global Marketing also seemed very forward thinking. The HR guy was very nice and obviously managing something shady going on with the process. The hiring manager was very odd. Didn't really want to go through my work and would only vaguely answer what deliverables the department generated. Such a disappointment. This position has great potential but I'm afraid won't go anywhere due to a log jam in the org. chart.
