    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group in January 2014.

    Interview

    Referred by a family friend, and was given a 45 minute phone interview. Once pushed to the next step I had to take a 3 hour test from my dorm room. A week later I was asked to come to Manhattan for 3 30 minute interviews. The first was two sales professionals, the second was two research professionals and the final interview was with HR. I also had to take another hour long survey. As I was brought in there were several other interview candidates. The interviews weren't stressful, but a lot of technical and behavioral questions were asked.

    Central Compliance Training Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Analysis Paralysis comes to mind. There were 5 rounds of interviews- and there would have been a 6th had I let them continue upon the path they were going in. Round 1 = HR Screening, Round 2 = Two 30 minute interviews with Sr. Managers, Round 3= Psychometric testing, Round 4=Two 30 minute interviews with Assoc. Directors, Round 5= Mock Training Session. Throughout these all of these rounds I barely had an opportunity to ask the interviewers questions, which was especially important considering this was a new role, and as I found out poorly defined in what they need. If I really wanted to be a full time trainer (rather than a training manager which is what the job is supposed to be) I would have just kept my mouth shut and cooperated with their process and probably gotten the offer, but not only is that not what I wanted- but more importantly I saw a great deal of inconsistancies- therefore the job as they define it is not what they need.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions from managers with L&D backgrounds were well framed for an L&D role- but seemed inconsistent from questions from those coming from Compliance, and difficult to gauge what they really wanted vs. what they needed. The questions themselves were not difficult.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with recruiter, she was very insulting, but somehow passed me on for anther in person interview. That went well and then the telephone interviews started with Australia . That was ok, although it was the same questions from most of them, then they have you take a very difficult assessment test. Better study for it, it is not easy.
