    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Got the interview through my recruiter, the company sounded interesting (although the compensation they are offering for this position is significantly lower than industry standard). Met with the office manager and a senior HR manager. Great, conversational interview - they were very warm and professional. I spent about 30 minutes with each.
