    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Barclays Capital.

    Interview Details

    The first stage comprised the standard psychometric tests- Numerical and logical, and thereafter if you pass the test, you will be invited for a phone interview.
    After the phone interview, an AC will be scheduled.
    Overall, the process was rather long. The AC was fun and the atmosphere was good.

    Interview Questions
    • Everything was predictable. Mostly competency questions.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    After reading on the other reviews as well as speaking to industry professionals, I realized that the salary progression is really low despite the high starting salary. Job security appears to be low as well, even though it offers a thorough training.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the summer internship in IBD with Barclays Singapore (coming from a semi-target US school). Within 2 weeks, got invited to one-on-one phone interviews with 3 people (1 analyst, associate, and assistance VP). The AVP gave some good behavioral questions. Coming from a non-finance/business/econ background, the other 2 interviewers pushed me with some difficult questions trying to see how much I knew. Got invited for a 'informational meetup' which is the 2nd round interview at a US office. This was a one-on-one interview with two different bankers from Asia who were visiting a US office. HR said there would be a final round interview at the New York office. Got an email that I didn't make it to the final round.

    Interview Questions
