Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group in October 2014.

Interview

Initial communication from internal recruiter via email. Interview scheduled promptly. Process was extremely professional. I was interviewed by two attorney-managers who were prompt and courteous and clear. There was no pre-screening. Interviews lasted roughly 30 minutes and were conducted in a prompt and professional manner. A pre-screening interview with the recruiter probably would have made sense in context.

Interview Questions

  • Interviewer believed the job was "below" my qualifications and asked questions around that issue. The question wasn't difficult, but the expectation wasn't clear prior to the interview, hence it was surprising.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Manila, Manila (Philippines)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Their application process is very loooooong. But just persevere, there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

    It will start with HR phone interview, then they'll invite you to come to the office for a technical exam and technical interview. Then the PO or Technical Lead might also want to interview you via Skype call in the office. Then the group's Associate Director, also on site. Then come back for a Psychometric Exam. Etcetera, there's still a long list after this.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Was meant to be two interviews, but ended up being three due to one of the interviewer's absence. Also had to sit through a rigorous psych test. They also required my existing manager's reference after I got an offer.
