Analyst Interview

Application Details

interviewed at Barclays in January 2012.

Interview Details

2 rounds of interviews with 3 people each round. Mostly behavioral questions with some technical questions on the equity markets thrown in. More about getting to know the person rather then to grill you with tough questions. 2/5 interviews didn't care much abut the questions they were asking and seemed unprepared. Most of the people who interviewed me have since left the firm.
