    Management Role In Sydney Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group in December 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was great - two people were lovely that interviewed me. Then I was asked to do psychometric testing that took almost three hours. Then second interview with two people was not as smooth and a bit under whelming. What upset me most was that after giving up 5 hours of my time to attend two interviews and the tests, I only got an email from the internal recruiter saying ‘sorry you weren’t successful’. To me that says a lot about the culture anyway. If someone takes the time to attend an interview, sorry folks but you owe them an actual phone call.

    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.

    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed at both No1 and No50 Martin Place locations. Both impressive locations and reception and concierges were prepared for your arrival . A strong first impression.
    interviews were well structured and clearly laid out at the beginning by the hiring managers. Consisting of an introduction to the firm and the job, then an opportunity for you to outline your experience before moving into the behavioural section. The interview concludes with logical puzzle and an opportunity for you to ask questions. The puzzle is designed to evaluate your problem solving skills, not necessarily if you get the answer right or wrong.
    Strongly advise preparing for the behavioural questions.
