    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2011.

    Just conversational with the Director and an unorganized VP. Director asked me questions on performing business analyst roles. The VP was demonstrating me the MS application that they were going to migrate, and the high level document, which was most basic I have ever seen as a specification, and was gauging interest about the project.
