I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Macquarie Group in May 2012.
Interview Details – I went for a personal interview on campus with two Macquarie employees after meeting one of them at a campus Career Fair. They were both extremely friendly, and the interview was very relaxed. It was definitely more of a fit interview than technical. At one point, the interviewer I had met even guided me through a question. The day after, we were all required to take a 3 hour long personality/skills test. This was not mentioned during the interview so make sure you are aware that it is a requirement of ALL new Macquarie hires (including MDs) so you won't be able to get out of it. The second interview I had was a brief, 4 minute phone call. I was not required to travel to NY for this round. Great people, relaxed office and the work culture is unlike any other on the Street (especially if you are in infrastructure, where most people were not poached from other firms but spent their entire career at Macquarie).
Negotiation Details – The contract is standard and as a first year hire you won't be able to negotiate. The package is market and the salary increase for first years is definitely above market.
I applied online - interviewed at Macquarie Group in September 2012.
Interview Details – Phone Interview with HR - first round then was invited to second round meeting. haven't done it yet. HR is very nice and helpful.
