    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.

    Interview

    I applied through a HR who contacted me for an internship proposal. I passed the technical exam for financial consulting. The exam was not that difficult but time-costing. The exam duration is specific for each position, but not associated to how many subjects you choose.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Murex (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through agent (sent CV), a few days later I was asked to attend a 2-hour paper based written test. I have to say the questions are not very difficult, it's all about time. I was pretty nervous on that day and overlooked a lot details especially I was dealing the code questions. I think I paniced though I consider myself having a solid CS background. C, integral (derive an formula based on the code) ,Java, OSI network layer(to be honest, i think this is a pointless question), internet protocals, threads, Database (design a databse according to the product and customer based scenario), SQL (produce an invoice), reflection, etc. Honestly, after the test I was quite disappointed, and feel this test didn't reflect my background at all. The problems I have solved are far more difficult than that...Anyway, just be careful reading the code (it could be just variable in the wrong scope.)

    Interview Questions

    • Before the test, just review most basic concept (pointers ), and be careful anwsering the code questions (don't omit any details, for example, the logic itself might be right, it is just a variable scope problem which I relaised this after the test.)   Answer Question
