    Interview Details

    I participated in the Finance and Operations Boot Camp, which is a 3-day event consisting of information sessions and networking events with senior managers and other analysts. I was able to learn more about the company, its Finance & Ops divisions, and its culture. Everyone was friendly and very enthusiastic about their job. On the last day of the event, I had two 1:1 interviews back to back - one with a VP and one with a Director. The interviewers didn't ask any technical questions.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Barclays Capital in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The HR people were tough but you just have to get in their and keep up your confidence without letting the stern faces get to you. They are not bad people, it is just a part of their test to see how you do under pressure.
    You will go through two rounds of interviews and then they will let you know if you got the job or not. Not sure if this is the same for all people but this is how it went for me.

    Interview Questions
    • I actually cannot remember that far back. The question I always have difficulty with is also the most simple one, "Tell me about yourself."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was a non-negotiable offer but I did not try to negotiate either because it was pretty good for a first job out of college.

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Barclays Capital in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed as a contractor into the firm by 4 groups of people within Global Operations. They are from different operation groups like equities settlements, fixed income settlements, corporate actions etc. It was back to back 4 sessions, they understood that I was fresh from school hence the questions they asked are relatively straight-forward.
