    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tradeweb.

    Interview

    Two technician interviewed me over the phone and is very intensive. At first, I introduced myself and went over my experience. But I felt like they were not interested about my experience. Then they asked me detailed technical questions and very picky about my answer. In all, this interview experience is not good for me.

    Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Tradeweb (Jersey City, NJ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Overall, an extremely poor and rushed interview process.

    1. Call with Recruiter.
    - Never would I believe a simple call with a recruiter could go wrong. I allowed the recruiter maximum flexibility (let them pick and I would make time) for the initial call and they failed to call me at their chosen time. Moreover, when trying to reschedule, they refused to admit they were at fault. The rescheduled call was just as poor with the recruiter claiming they tried to call me multiple times with no answer (they did not, they were just late...again).

    2. Call with hiring managers (plural).
    - The information I was given for my next set of calls did not match up who I was actually speaking with (nor did they inform me). So instead of me speaking with "Bob" I received a call from "Joe." I would like to emphasize that these individuals at least called me at the correct time at the same number with no problem (supporting my claim about the recruiter in the previous step). As for the content of these calls, they were basic technical questions around concurrency. The problem was the questions were so simple that the calls ended within minutes with a "Sorry, we don't have anything else to ask, we usually need to guide applicants through these questions over time."

    3. On-site Interview.
    Despite my claims that I was busy one week, the recruiter did not care and scheduled me to visit them anyway during that time due to other participants (now they were just rushing). I was once again given a schedule of 3 people to speak with, but upon arrival only 2 of them were in the office and I was informed that I was one of the last applicants being interviewed (translation: we already have someone else in mind but maybe you'll be better but we're really just going to waste your time). Well, the interviews went just as expected. The interviewees had very strong opinions about how their questions should be answered and were not accommodating to alternative solutions. There was one question that I conceded defeat to and requested the solution just to be told "look it up in the JDK source code." Well, upon looking it up after the interview I found that I was correct but the interviewer refused to acknowledge.

    Upon finishing my on-site interview I was shoved out of the office and told they would have HR contact me. When I say shoved, I mean I was walked into a hallway, given the directions to the elevator bank (at the other side of the building), and had the door shut behind me (translation: the one individual, the hiring manager, had full power and did not even care to discuss with the other team member before declining me).

    I received the "regret to inform you" the next day, at least I got a response.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tradeweb.

    Interview

    Applied on line, and HR called directly. First round was phone interview. And then second interview was on-site in Jersey City office, which was unprofessionally scheduled on 8:30 in the morning. During the whole process, nobody even talked anything about the hiring team or the position, neither did the interviewer bring any drink. Very bad experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Worst experience ever...I normally don't post anything online, but I wanted to warm people of this company before they invest the time and effort to interviewing.

    Process began with an phone interview with the hiring manager. The person seemed nice and asked questions regarding my background. After, I heard back in a couple days that I was scheduled to speak with again person in a different office. After that phone interview, HR scheduled me to visit the NYC office for an on-site interview. They reimbursed my travel cost and I had 5 back to back interviews with various managers and employees. I thought everything went well and the HR said I would be hearing back soon. A few weeks past and I followed up with the HR rep. He said that it would take another week or so. Again, a few weeks past and I followed up again. The HR rep said that the hiring manager would be contacting me soon. I felt as though an offer my be coming. I few days later I received a phone call from the hiring manager. To my surprised, she wanted me to do an home work assignment for her. This is 2 months into the hiring process! I agreed and quickly finished the assignment. After sending the assignment, I didn't hear anything back for a week. I followed up again, and the HR rep sent me a generic email stating that they went with another candidate. I think this was the most ridiculous process I ever went through. After 2 and a half months, all they do is sent a generic rejection email. By far the worst interview experience I ever faced.

    For future interviewees' please beware!
