    Just conversational with the Director and an unorganized VP. Director asked me questions on performing business analyst roles.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Barclays Investment (Pune (India)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Initialy a screening round happens. Then couple of technical interviews happen. If those are cleared then HR round takes place. If everything goes fine, they roll out the offer letter. Usually Barclays pays above the normal market standards but there is no onsite. Only short business trips. Bonus is average.
