    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Barclays Capital.

    Interview Details

    Had a combination of phone and video interviews. All went well and the fit was good on both sides. The process did extend beyond the normal period for a replacement hire due to internal politics on which office the position would be located. Overall a good experience though. HR and other support were great during the hiring process.

    Interview Questions
    • A question completely unrelated to the line of work for which I was applying, i.e. a technical question. Turns out this person was testing me to see if I would be suitable for an open position in their universe.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was not as painful as most places can be. Had a great hiring manager that delivered.

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I didnt recieve any technical questions which was disapointing as this is predominantly where my skill set lies. All the questions were about management and personality style which is fine but I would have prefered it to be more balanced.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Barclays Capital in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Seven total interviews with four different people on three different occasions over a period of about a month plus a separate meeting with two consultants from the recruitment agency. I was assured an offer was forthcoming. After several weeks of maintaining that it would be in my hand within the week, they called back to say that senior management had changed their mind and they wouldn't be hiring anybody.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Barclays Capital in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Can be a lengthy process. My interview process involved four interviews. The first with HR, the second with the direct hiring manager, the third with the department head and finally the last interview was with the department global head. Interview format is quiet standard, questions are more geared towards your experience and what you could bring to the department and the job itself.

    Interview Questions
    • There isn't any really difficult or unexpected questions. So long as you know what how your experience is related to the role you are interviewing for you will be fine.   Answer Question
