    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for an initial screening by an off-site hiring consultant. We spoke briefly about the position and to see if I was a good fit for the role and the company. After about five days or so, I was contacted by the hiring manager to meet in Manhattan for an interview with two members of the team.

    I met with both gentlemen and we spoke briefly about the role and my desires that were geared toward this specific role. As an entry-level position with no real experience necessary, they did not delve into nor desire to hear much regarding my schooling nor my experience as a post-grad.

    Given the position, I would have more than likely taken it, but I felt like I was not welcome very much from the beginning. My answers to their questions never really seemed quite up to snuff and I felt quite debased each time I answered. I've had a variety of different experiences on interviews, but I'd have to say, this wasn't the best one by any stretch.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group.

    Interview

    Interview process is very long and includes personality/logic/math test. Very unorganized. At least once the offer came in everything was pretty clear. This is to get my answer to the 30 word minimum.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    90 minute phone call with Australia, 2 hour in person interview, 3 hour general education test.

    The timed IQ tests I consider silly unless you're coming out of school... Other than that it's a pretty standard process. A little bit easy as they don't ask you to complete a project (which I personally consider the best coding assessment you can give someone)

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    On campus recruiting like all other banks, then first round interviews on campus with a girl from HR or a relatively junior person, then took some ridiculously long assessment test, then final round superday at the company office (3-4 interviews, 30 min each). They did draw out the process a lot longer than I would have liked, but they gave me two weeks to decide and let me pick my start date the following summer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in August 2007.

    Interview

    2 phone call + 2 on-site +1 simple computer test, quite easy compared with other banks, just some behavioral and motivation questions

    Quality of staffs and company culture are mediocre, but try to convince them that Macquarie will be your dedicated choice if hired

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This is a graduate job with a standard package, so they give me the offer one week after interview without much negotiation
