    Senior Pricing and Risk Developer (Java) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CMC Markets (London, England) in August 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an agent and forwarded a take home exercise, and I have completed it in TDD approach, I was very confident about it. After 5 days she said she received feed back from CMC and told me that sanity checks fail. Really doubtful how those sanity checks fail when there are tests already to guarantee the requirements are covered. And the worst thing is you will never know about the other party at CMC you are dealing with, so you have to be ready for such simple feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • A take home exercise, you will have to make your own assumptions .. etc. I cannot disclose the question because I have agreed so.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CMC Markets.

    Interview

    Fairly decent and above-average-industry-difficulty coding exercise which was fun to code, however when your solution doesn't pass, you will just hear "it's not passing our functional tests". So a reply rather than a feedback. Despite your solution correctly compiles, might have clean code, 15+ tests written (with correctly asserted numbers against original description) - you won't hear what was wrong...

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Unprofessional HR!

    Received an invitation for interview via email, but only realised that it was cancelled after sending a confirmation email. HR personnel reasoned that one of the interviewer had a last minute travel arrangement and will not be available. Also mentioned that she will reconfirm the interview with me on a later date.

    The following week, I emailed for an update but did not receive any response from HR. I prompted for an update the following week and was told that the position was now closed.

    The HR personnel added in the email "hope to receive your application again for future suitable roles with CMC Markets Singapore."

    Waited 3 weeks just to get a response for an interview, only to be told that it was already closed.

    Speechless. Unprofessional. Waste of time. Avoid this company.
