    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Had a phone screening a week after submitting my application. Then a two-one interview a week later.
    Quite informal and relax. However, questions were difficult (not technical) more situational.
    Had two interviewees and the process took just under an hour. This is the first rounds of interviews.
    Have lots of situations and solutions prepared.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Initial communication was slow - I only got the interview confirmation the day before the interview itself. After attending the interview, the HR team did not have the courtesy to call me re: feedback or the status of my application. Very disappointing and would not recommend this company to others.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview is okay. Nothing too technical. However, the whole process is not very organised, it took almost 2 months. It is a rotational role, so both shanghai and Sydney office interviewed me. Two HR interviewed me and they have a lot of overlapping questions. Despite the process is a bit long. the overall experience was good. They were quite professional

    IT Senior Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the role online, within 24 hours I had a phone interview with an HR person. The second interview was a week later with the hiring manager via VC, the third interview was a week later with a panel of local team members, the fourth interview was an IQ/Personality test.

    A fifth and final interview was scheduled but 2 weeks after the Personality test I received an email saying they would not proceed as another candidate was a better fit.

    Considering the length and effort during the interview process it would have been nice to have gotten a call instead of a generic email rejection with a bit more explanation as to why. Otherwise, the process, albeit overly long, was efficient.

    Interview Questions

    • They did not ask any specific technical questions but allowed me to describe technical situations and how I dealt with it.   Answer Question

    Interview

    2 rounds, good interviewers who knew the subject matter and were not afraid to ask tough questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    applied online a week ago and received a call just now from HR business partner. But I think I just fail because at the end of interview, HR just tell me the process of the recruitment and the outcome will be by the end of this week but didn't invite me directly over the phone. I prepare a lot but it was a terrible situation where I was outside and it was super noisy so I behave not enough properly. Just wanna cry...
