    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.

    I had an interview with Macquarie Asset Management. I went thru a recruiting agency. Had a telephone interview. Open ended questions to determine my Project Management knowledge.. it went off well and they insisted that I come to the Philadelphia office for a Face to Face..whole day meeting to meet about 7 people.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    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)

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Saw posting on Macquarie website, and applied. Got an email a few weeks later, asking me to come in for interview consisting of real-time technical support scenarios, and a 5 minute presentation of a topic of my choice & how it can be applied to Macquarie. Went in for the interview, and did the scenarios & presentation. Got a response back a few days later, asking me to come back in for final round interview. Did a psychometric exam, consisting of math, verbal, and personality questions. I then met with most of the team, and answered various technical, situational, and personality questions.

    Incident Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone call with managers, if you pass then another manager interview with Australian manager, then personality test.

    They will not give the courtesy email on process updates. This was 2nd time interviewing with Macquarie, Their NYC HR recruiter promised to respond if declined. Both times they refused to respond to polite inquiries. First time I made it thru interviews and invited to take their version of a personality test, but employee referral quit so assumed I was blackballed.
    I was invited 2 years later to interview after another employee referred me, but since I was associated to someone that quit I assume it happened again after I did my phone interview.
