Research Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

Interview

The hiring manager was decent, however as soon as we sat down, I could tell I wasn't the one. They didn't even read my resume beforehand. I had to explain to him 5 times what my old role was, they were constantly checking the clock, and seemed disinterested in my answers.

I was then asked questions about the economy and financial markets, where I would get data for analysis, and was given information about the role itself.

After that was done, I had a phone call with an HR employee from their New York office. They were very pleasant, and asked me a few questions on the latest economic and market developments, my preference for industry specialization, what I could bring to the role etc. This was also behavioural as well.

I did not get the role.
