Difficult Interview


The process took a dayinterviewed at Macquarie Group (London, England) in August 2010.


Details were submitted through a recruitment agency. They require an IKM test to be completed prior to being offered an interview. Usually would be a phone interview, but this was skipped due to past work experience. Full process consists of telephone interview, initial interview, technical interview, aptitude testing and a final interview to determine fit into the bank.

First interview lasted 2 hours and was performed by 2 people asking a series of technical questions across Java, JEE, SQL and past business experience. This was followed by a more focused technical interview asking detailed Java/JEE/development questions and lasted approximately 45 mins.

All interviewers were friendly and happy to clarify/provide details on the questions being asked. They were probing to understand how deep your experience is. They were able to handle the technical details provided and demonstrated strong technical knowledge. Key considerations are depth of technical knowledge and very much on how well you would fit into the existing team.

No information was given on the culture, working environment or even the role prior to the final interview - which I did not make.
