    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, CO (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Lakewood, CO (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Interview had 3 stages. The first was about Java, then about big data, and finally with management. I didn't meet all the criteria for the position but believed there would be an opportunity to learn. It was really a waste of time since it took 2 weeks to finally be rejected after an onsite interview. If there was a specific requirement for the position that I didn't have than it would have been better to reject my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about which big data technologies I have used.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Marlborough, MA (US)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I first met with the division manager then the lead engineer who gave me a tour of the office and described the development process and team organization.

    The lead engineer then put me in a room with 4 other engineers who took turns shooting questions at me about a range of topics including SQL queries, MVC design patterns, advanced CSS, and object oriented programming.

    Afterwards, I had a long talk with a vice president via a video conference which quickly veered away from software development.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had another offer where I thought the work environment, the product and co-workers would be a better fit.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (San Francisco, CA (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was straight forward, and very typical - talk with a member of the team, size each other up in terms of technical ability, and gel with personalities. Briefly talk with the team manager in a 2nd round, and if both like you - it's pretty much a done deal.

    Now comes the completely horrible part, and after I've had enough - I rescinded their offer, I have better uses of my time, much less completely unnecessary invasion into my personal / professional life. Mind you this was merely a contract job that was scheduled to last about a year, at a below average rate.

    Drug Screen - fine, we all know what this means though.
    Background Check - fine, whatever.
    Employment Verification - 7 years worth of it.
    FBI Fingerprints - I had to dig for this one, broker / dealers are subjected to it - to which then they just apply the "well everyone has to" card, seems excessive given the background check already.

    Now comes when it becomes just asinine. Have any of you worked for a start-up or a company that was dissolved as a result of the implosion in 2008? Who hasn't. However, since they can't call anyone just to "verify you worked for them" mind you, they insisted on the following: your personal IRS Transcript, W2, or paystubs.
    1) The IRS only keeps that information available for 4 years.
    2) Who keeps paystubs or paper W2's other than hoarders going that far back.
    3) How is any of that relevant to the job being offered - it isn't. Would it matter if I made a $1, or $1M?

    Reasonable digital paperwork like contracts, job offer paperwork, and even timesheets don't count. Considering anyone with even a tiny fraction of a brain would come to a logical conclusion, it was the Great Recession after all, and it stands to be reasonable that they did the work, why would it matter if the last month worked was March or April, much less how does this have any bearing on what we want this person to do today?

    Oh yeah, it doesn't.

    This is the type of place that would insist on your Facebook password, or DNA sample if it were legal to make it a pre-condition to employment. Those kind of policies are company wide pervasive, and if you like being micro-managed without an ounce of trust - this is the perfect place for you.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The H.R called me for an interview. First, they asked about my salary expectations and after some emails, I answered. Then it was time for my interview. I did 2 interviews back-to-back. The hiring managers were friendly and the questions were pretty standard

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    An external recruiter reached out for an initial touch then an internal Nasdaq recruiter reached out to setup a phone screen with the hiring manager. After I spoke with the hiring manager, he invited me to come in to speak with him and another VP. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and professional from the recruiters to both hiring managers. The on site interview was scheduled for 3 hours and I was there for less, so I knew I most likely wouldn't be offered the job. The role/company seems more reserved (I have a tech startup background) but had wanted to make a transition.
