Financial Software Consultant Interview

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at Murex.

Interview

The Initial testing is difficult, difficult to complete in the two hours as it was very long. There is 3 questions on murex itself at the start. Make sure you have these researched. Then there is 5 compulsory logic questions followed by a choice of three sections from 5. Each section consisted of 10 questions and you could choose from 2 IT sections, 2 finance sections and 1 maths section. You do not need to have in depth work done for each of these sections, just pick the ones that suit you. The questions do not seem to change year after year so a lot of the questions listed by other people are relevant.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Murex (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Initially i was applied for Financial software consultant, and i gave the aptitude test spending 2.5 hours in murex offices. HR gave feedback that my skills are strong for financial software consultant and Performance Architect consultant role would suit better basing on my qualifications. Again took a 3 hour programming test and passed in that. Final interview with Managing director at 6:30 pm . He was asking questions that sounds strange and feedback was i am too keen on the position and they would not consider my application.
