Summer Technology Analyst Interview

Summer Technology Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – Asked a lot about very detailed questions about past experiences in the tech round. Be prepared for anything. Nothing really unexpected though.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None

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.

1) If you are traveling from one city to another and you want to go by cheapest way, how will you go?
2) what is the difference between liquid assets and commodity ?
3) Why not facebook , google why barclays?
4) tell pros and cons of working in big teams.

Summer Technology Analyst Interview

Summer Technology Analyst

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – There was a brain teaser... the Die Hard With a Vengeance water jug question: You're following riddles all around New York, and one tells you to fill a jug with exactly 4 gallons of water to defuse a bomb using only a 3 gallon and a 5 gallon jug.   Answer Question
