    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Instinet in June 2019.

    Interview

    Strung me along for months and I moved on from them. They then called me and offered me the position. We negotiated and last minute called me to tell me they moved the position to NYC.

    Great example of a company you don’t want to work for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Instinet (New York, NY (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter asking typical HR questions, salary and such. Phone interview with hiring manager second. I was told of a 'take home' test that would be given on a Friday and expected to be returned on the following Monday. Manager interview followed. Technical interview to prescreen for on-site interview. Contacted by recruiter once then did not hear from him for over a month followed by hiring manager phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical clock domain crossing questions, DDR, FPGA timing analysis. Also wanted applicant to design a circuit over the weekend with testbench and results. I did not get to this point since the interviewer seemed more interested in having me describe verilog language constructs that I do not regularly use in the design of hardware circuits, maybe used in a testbench when I don't care about non-synthesizable code.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Instinet (New York, NY (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First was a telephonic interview. Lasted for about 20 mins. The interviewer asked some questions in Java. I was on a vacation at the time of the second interview so instead of an in person interview they scheduled a telephonic interview.
    I spoke with the manager of the team for the second interview and he explained about the company and the job. Finally, I spoke with the HR and was followed by a background verification and Drug test.
