    Equity Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group.

    Interview

    Contacted through the HR rep, who was very efficient. This was for an experienced candidate job.
    First interview was with potential direct manager. Went into a small room with a desk. One-on-one interview. Interview did not come across as structured, but usual points were covered, like experience, expertise and the like. Very impressed with this interview.
    Second interview with the head of the "department area." Again highly intelligent. Less about experience but more about character traits, personality etc. Asked me about high school accomplishments and university life, rather than career.

    Interview Questions

    • Second interviewer asked about high school accomplishments etc. Was definitely not prepared for this, particularly since I didn't do too well in high school (compared to most other Macquarie workers probably).   Answer Question

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macquarie Group.

    Interview

    Applied online, only required c.v and cover letter. Had a phone interview and got through to the next stage (still to come). The phone interview lasted 30 mins, the woman was very friendly. Questions included why Macquarie, why FICC etc, but also why my degree/past experience is relevant to a job in investment banking, when have I been criticized and what have I done since and then some brainteasers at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • Brain teasers at the end as they were unexpected from a phone interview: One was a cook can make 2 large cakes per hour or 20 small cakes. We have the kitchen for 3 hours and need 20 large cakes and 220 small cakes. How many cooks do we need?   3 Answers
