    Interview

    Interviewer was cold, unfriendly and seemed to be going through the motions. It was a phone interview, and she didn't interrupt or ask me questions along the way - just wanted to get the answers.

    Interview

    Initial stage is online application and SHL tests - very easy as long as you have done the practise. Sometimes you would get a logical test too, but from what I heard not everyone gets these. Then its a typical competency-based telephone interview - Why you? Why Barcap? Why IB? Describe a situation you worked in a team?

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Barclays Investment.

    Interview

    I first had to do some standard numerical and verbal reasoning tests online and then got an email 3 weeks later saying I had a first stage telephone interview. Initially they couldn't connect to my phone so we had to reschedule it a week later. I thought the interview went well but didn't get through to the next round so obviously something didn't go quite right!

    Interview

    First round, group discussion. I had two types of case studies. After the discussion, the representative was elected and required to give a presentation about the result of the presentation to the employees. If you will not be the representative , there are many chances to speak . The key point is Q and A after the discussion

    Interview

    I applied for summer technical analyst in Barclay. This interview was on campus. And there were two parts. First part was technical part and the second part was behavioral part. I did quite well in the behavioral questions. But for the technical part, thought the interviewer asked for basic Java questions, I did not do well. Tips: just go over all the basic concepts in Java. The interviewer were so nice.
