    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Murex.

    Interview

    Two woman from Human Resources department asking the normal questions about every single experience and studies. Kind of regular checks, nonetheless, they were quite overactive, sometimes what french says about this is like "arrêt du faire du cinema" because didn't feel natural fluency about their verbal and non verbal communication. That makes the communication less functional, as a distraction it reduced the possibilities to be open and talk about your profile and how it will be possible to contribute to the mission.

    Front Office Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Murex (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had to complete a test booklet at arrival that lasted 2 hours. The test involved three sections: maths, coding and finance questions. I find it strange that they would ask maths questions about circles. Afterwards, the manager and an employee reviewed the test booklet and sat down for an interview. The employee generally asked behavioural questions while the manager asked more technical questions. The manager also went through the test booklet, particularly on questions I could not answer. The whole process did make me feel incompetent even though I was very confident in my numerical skills. The interviewers were quite friendly. However, they expect a lot from their candidate pool. The process did give off the vibe that you are to work autonomously at all times.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions on options, future and forward contracts
      Standard behavioural questions
      Interviewers ask questions based on the resume so I suggest learn your resume thoroughly
