    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Murex (Paris (France)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in their website:
    1. First round - Specialized test : I was invited to Murex office in Paris to do the test. They had a short introduction about the company and recruitment process before doing the test (around 15 minutes). Test structure:
    - one compulsory writing test in Finance: you have 1 hour to complete this test. It includes 15 calculation questions about financial markets (such as: bonds, derivatives,...). You are not allowed to use your calculator or support documents.
    - one optional test in Finance: you have the rights to choose one of 3 subjects (I don't remember all of them). I chosen financial products subject and I had 45 minutes to complete 6 questions about hedging pricing model. It's much more difficult than the compulsory one. The optional test is not compulsory, you can choose to do the test if you are confident that it will help you increase your grade.

    2. Second round: HR interview. After 2 weeks, I got a skype interview with HR. It's online interview. They just asked me some classical questions: my understanding about company's operation, my motivation, my advantages and disadvantages, my education... It was around 30 minutes

    3. Third round: Face-to-face interview with manager: One hour interview.
    - The first part (10 minutes): They asked me about my previous experience and my education related to financial markets.
    - The second part (20 minutes): They asked about some financial products: IRS, EQD,... Just my understanding about these financial products (not about pricing).
    - The third part (30 minutes): They introduced one function in MX3 and explained how it works. Then they gave me a case study regarding this function. I needed to answer what should I do in this situation to analyse the problem and answer clients

    The timeline: I got the result of 1st round in one week, the 2nd round in 2 weeks and the 3rd round in 3 days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Murex in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is very lengthy, that is not to mention the exam that one needs to pass beforehand. And one has to pass many interviews in order to be considered. The whole thing was very badly managed and felt very unprofessional. I highly recommend people not to apply to this company as their teams were very hypocritical.
