    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I responded to an online ad then had a pre-screening interview with HR. This answered a lot of my questions about the role. Once HR was satisfied I had an interview with the group manager.
    The questions were really exploratory and focused on outcomes. Really excellent experience and quite engaging. Interviewer was very honest and willing to answer my questions at the end, talked about their experiences and gave excellent feedback.
