Sales and Trading Interview

Sales and Trading
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Barclays Capital in November 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online, was contacted for a phone interview. Phone interview went very well, organized a trip to New York office for super day. Met with 3 upper level individuals. Interviews went very well, but they only had one spot to fill on the desk, ended up hiring a summer intern from another group. Overall a great experience, the professionals were very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend Barclays for anyone wanting to go into the big bank environment. They are a wonderful company, I would have loved to work there!
