    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Paris (France)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Murex in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume through their recruitment website (applied for a particular software development position). I was contacted by one of their recruiter one week later to schedule a date for the written test. The date for the written test were fixed by Murex's recruiters and provide little or no room for modification.

    The day of the written test, we (myself and about 5 other applicants) were placed in a conference room where a recruiter explained the murex application process, timing, and desired skills. The test comprises optional parts, but form my particular position (software engineer) it embodied only object oriented programming, java, c++, and design problems. The test is not difficult but is particularly long. At the end of the test you are asked to write a little paragraph "in english" about yourself, your projects, etc. (it's a basic english test).

    About a week later the recruiter sent me an email to schedule a 1:1 interview with a recruiter following by a 1:2 interview with a software engineering manager. The recruiter interview consisted on previous experience, cultural fit, and a few other behavioural questions.

    The technical interview was very stimulating and challenging, it lasted 2+ hours during which I was asked about Object Oriented programming and design, code reviews, etc (basically explain all the answers given in the written test).

    The interviewers were always nice. Remember, they are there to asses your problem solving capabilities, coding and design skill, and finally to check whether they will be comfortable working with you.

    Interview Questions
    • 3+ hours written test. Nothing too difficult. Study object oriented concepts, java and c++. Prepare for behavioural questions such as "tell us about a time when you had to handle stress".   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Murex.

    Interview Details

    Got an email few weeks after submitting the CV online. The went to Paris for a on-site interview. The 1st round was only a written test with several options to choose depending on the job position. I choose the software developer, but most of the tests are about OO codes test such as java which is not keeping in line with my profile. Then, few weeks later, got the negative news.

    Interview Questions
    • nothing was really dificult, but just not so match with my background. If someone has strong background in the OO programming, that could be nice.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    At first glance, seems to be an elite company. Beautiful building, leader on its market, difficult process... The first step consist of finance/math/cs/english test. Depending on the position sought, some modules become mandatory, will other can be freely chosen. It took me more than 3 hours to complete a 50+-page test. I passed the test but failed on the next HR interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Well, review extensively everything that you might be question about for the technical test (see other review) but more importantly, be quick.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Murex in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Procurement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Total 4 rounds of interviews - One by phone, three face-to-face.

    Fairly tough interviews but confusing for candidates as there were different explanation of the job function from each round of interview. Candidates informed that it is a newly created job function hence could not provide proper indication of performance criteria, however interviewers seem to have very high expectations for the candidate.
