    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Ann Arbor, MI (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online but got an interview through a referral. The guys who interviewed me on campus were very nice but clearly did not want to be there. Showed little interest in my answers but I think they were just more interested in the precise answers rather than conversing. Took several weeks to hear back.

    Network Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Houston, TX (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Interesting Process... first interview with HR, then a head department. After you complete a series of test, you'll be interviewed by a peer. that's where it gets difficult, because peers are really hard when interviewing candidates

    Interview

    Standard Interview. You start by being contacted by a recruiter, then enter an interview. If they like you, they'll ask for references and you'll take a job assessment to understand your skillset. Nothing too crazy.

    Junior Risk Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Process took 2 months. had a face -to-face interview, then same week was called in to take a psychometric and personality test, then approximately 2 weeks conducted interviews with four head people of the team (senior VP, President, MD and Senior Manager). By the way, it is made clear in the interview especially in the final round that you have to be Australian to get the job. Less chance of getting the position if you are a minority trust me. It was blatant in final round. It seemed they had exactly what they was looking for but allowed you to continue to waste your time in the interview of final round.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st round was simple, just needed to know your resume. Final round was tough . I know already I wasn't getting the position from the time the president entered the room and started to ask what my previous position had to do with risk analysis although the job post required experience of 0-2 yrs experience.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied by online and process took 3+ weeks. Interviews were fine and easy. First, I had a phone interview and 30 minutes on-site interview. I took their assessment test and was planned to meet with the Senior manager, but meanwhile, HR told me that they moved forward with candidates. They are kind, but once I didn't get hired, everyone disappeared and have not replied my email.
