    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Barclays Capital in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went through the logical and numerical tests. Got a phone Interview with a very nice woman who was willing to make me feel comfortable. It was a strengths-based interview with questions on teamwork, relationships in a team, dealing with large projects... etc
    Then I was invited to the Assessment Center. We were about 10 summer/graduate applicants. 2 groups were made.
    - Group task : assembling sort of a rubik's cube with certain constraints
    - Strengths-Based Interview pretty much like the phone interview
    - Technical Interview with questions on projects I had completed, data structures, software developping processes etc

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting. attended the superday. Interviewed at Barcap NY office. 1 tech round. 1 behavior round. 1 hr round. 30 mins each for the first two round. 15 mins for the hr round. People are really nice. The hr people great me at the front door and led me to the interviewers. The interviewers would lead me back. Relaxed working environment. The tech interviewer will ask some really easy questions like "what do you like about technology" to calm you down. And will then ask some basic OOP or algorithm questions. Then some networking or system infrastructure questions. Other times it was mostly conversational. The interviewer really try to understand if you really want to do this or not. So be yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked a lot about very detailed questions about past experiences in the tech round. Be prepared for anything. Nothing really unexpected though.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Barclays Capital.

    Interview Details

    First round on-campus interview. There were 3 1-on-1 interviews in this round.

    The first one was behavioral and walked through my resume. He was very enthusiastic.

    The second one was droning and then looking at his phone for most of the interview and me to ask questions until I was done.

    Got my decision by email about 20 days after the interview.

    Interview Details

    I have submitted my resume through campus career services. I got a call for a 1:1 interview after 2-3 weeks of submission. Interview was taken by VP's of the information technology branch. It was not a technical interview. They asked about some finance terms as well as asked about my resume. There were many behavioral questions too.
