Average Interview


The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in June 2007.


Initial interview was relaxed, over coffee, followed by thorough skills-based interview by two senior executives (consecutively, not together). Feedback after the process was good and in retrospect the feedback I have received throughout my employment (starting with interview) has always been the most thorough and accurate I have received in 15 years working (although this may have been driven by the personalities involved as much as Barclays frameworks).

As a contractor, there are standard contract terms so the only negotiation is salary and holiday. Barclays seems to have no problem adding VAT to a base contract rate.
