    Interview on campus; the process took about 2 weeks.

    1-hour interview with 2 interviewers. Since the interview is for finance division and I stated that I had some experiences on the risk side, I was asked questions about this topic. Those are the only technical questions I got, and others are very behavioral.

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Barclays in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met with the hiring manager several times over the course of three months. Following the meetings, I then met with other people on the trading floor, then the head of sales and trading. After several rounds and detailed conversations regarding accounts, revenue contribution levels, and personality fits, the head of sales and trading told me in the last interview that the firm is not hiring at that time. Despite attempting to reach the first point of contact, the first hiring manager to gain more clarity on the situation, I never heard from him again.
