    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Barclays Investment (Pune (India)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Scheduled for an on-campus test. The on-campus test consisted of mental ability and quantitative questions. They were difficult and the time was low. Calculators allowed, but I did not know that. Was at a disadvantage. Was able to finish in time. Shortlisted for a 'hiring center' test. Consisted of two case interviews. Had to present in front of four directors in a team of 6 people. There was a group consensus required. Called for a further 2 interviews the next day. Largely technical and skill based. Had one interview where behavioral questions were asked

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Barclays Investment (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    None

    Interview

    Went through the logical and numerical tests. Got a phone Interview with a very nice woman who was willing to make me feel comfortable. It was a strengths-based interview with questions on teamwork, relationships in a team, dealing with large projects... etc Then I was invited to the Assessment Center. We were about 10 summer/graduate applicants. 2 groups were made. - Group task : assembling sort of a rubik's cube with certain constraints - Strengths-Based Interview pretty much like the phone interview - Technical Interview with questions on projects I had completed, data structures, software developping processes etc

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Barclays Investment.

    Interview

    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.
