Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Barclays Capital (New York, NY) in November 2011.

Interview

I initially found out about the company because of an information session I signed up for at my college. I applied for their 3-day boot camp. Even though the interview was on the final day, you know they are interviewing you the whole time. The first day was more of an initial meet and greet with students, HR, and management. You talk about how to improve your resume, doing an elevator pitch and then we met for drinks and appetizers. The second day there were a lot of presentations from interns, senior management, and analysts. We discussed to roles of operations and finance and what students would do during their internship. In addition to that we had a case study to present which was a little nerve racking and fun at the same time. The day of the interview I was nervous but I tried my hardest to keep my composure. In the end I got an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital (Rutgers, NJ) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Applied through my college career site. The process was very quick and seamless. It was only one round where I interviewed with two Vice Presidents. A couple of weeks later, I received an offer to become a Summer Analyst and then was extended a Full Time Offer after the program was over. Great program where they promote learning.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly Behavioral questions and very personality fit questions. Only one question about Present Value, where they just want to know if you know what NPV is.   1 Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I had a series of two interviews. The first interview was with a VP which was 1 on 1. He was on his blackberry half of the time, but seemed to like me since I got a second round. No technical questions but asked about previous internship experience and went into detail with that.

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. The offer was on the table and a very handsome one I may add. Again, this is an internship offer, not a job, so no negotiating going on here.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Barclays Capital (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The first step in the process was being taken out to dinner for drinks and dinner the night before the interview. This occurred after being selected for an interview after the application process. There were 4 reps from barclays and the interviews were in a 2 on 1 format split up into 2 separate groups. The interview consisted of some mathematical brain teasers and questions about relevant experience.

    The interview was through on campus recruiting. 2 members of management in the department interviewed me focusing on how I fit into the position. It was fairly casual; they asked questions about my knowledge of general finance and some situational problem solving.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2012.

    Interview

    Very basic interview, essentially a glorified "walk me through your resume." However, they are definitely looking for people with experience with Excel, accounting, and capital markets. It may seem very laid back, but don't be fooled. I had a 2:1 interview, and the two interviewers liked to play off of each other.
