    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    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)

    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Two parts: Behavioral & Technical. 3 questions each. Interview lasts 30minutes. Everyone is extremely nice and patient. For technical aspect they are looking as to how you process the questions. So prepare your analytical thinking skills for some brain teasers. They will ask you questions such as: how would you find the square root of 100,000? or an exponential equation word problem and will purposely seek to how you are doing it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First had a behavioral interview, then some logic tests that I had to take online, and then a in-person final interview. The final interview wasn't particularly difficult, but it did involve a little bit of a case example at the end. Mostly trying to figure out why I wanted to work in finance and specifically as an Equity Research Intern.
