    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Macquarie Group in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was not too detailed, but included the basic questions from various levels of management. They had me take a personality test which I thought was ridiculous. COme to find out most of the bankers hired have been let go due to the market downturn. The restrucuturing side is still chugging along, but heard the demise of the banking division.
