Interview process was standard as i had prior experience in the industry. Questions were expected and industry standard. The interview process took a long time, as in several months. This was longer than expected, which was a little bit frustrating.

    Quick initial interview which was very basic and not very challenging. Was told that I got the job but there was a company restructure so hiring was on hold for 2 months. Came back to me 2 months later with another interview and landed the job.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The process began by two "informal" competency based interviews by the member of the team that I would be part of. Prior to the interview, I was not familiar with the company, therefore a lot of time was spent looking at the website, reading financial statements etc to gain understanding and context of the current situation. There were six interview in total, these ranged from competency based, to personality and culture fit. The interviewers were friendly and were clearly interested in how my activities outside of work might affect my approach to a career within the firm.

    Overall, I think the interview process was onerous because it was spread over 3 months with 6 in total. Eventually, you ended up saying the same things at different installments. My advice for applicants would be to consider the culture fit for the department you are working for. There are very intelligent people in the firm working very long hours, if you are considering an application, i would suggest the majority of the post interview questions are on fit because this will make the difference,

    Interview Details

    Smooth & quick hiring process...most questions are tailored around on how you handle yourself in a team enviornment and working under pressure. Will ask few technical questions to guage how you articulate things even if you may not know the correct answer.

    Pay is pretty well but be prepared to put in some long hours.
