Very Easy Interview

Process Advisor Interview

Process Advisor
Noida (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Barclays Shared Services in June 2012.

Interview Details – Well first off, I should mention that its a BPO job, and my experience prior to this job was in a different sector.
So i was counted as a fresher when I went to the barclays office in noida (Walk-in ) interview and was not allowed to give the interview
I then went to signature staff (a consultancy) which arranged an interview fore me.
(Don't know how)

Interview Question – I was just a simple conversation, nothing difficult   Answer Question

Risk Interview

Risk
Mumbai (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Barclays Shared Services in May 2014.

Interview Details – I had two rounds
1. Telephonic
2. Face to Face.
Both the rounds were good.

For 2nd round, the interviewers were very happy (thats what they mentioned). They were clear about the questions. The questions were as expected. They thanks me for my time and appretiated my efforts. They also emphasised on meeting a SVP who was at place of interview (since they reported directly to her). They mentioned the reason as - "Since she is the person whom you will be reporting, lets have a quick chat with her". Unfortunately she was busy with some other interview.
Their body language signified that i was through the interview (Atleast i thought so..).

But.. Destiny was somthing different.. Almost 1 week past.. no response received from them. When contacted on phone, I got a reponse from HR saying "They are yet to get back to her about the opening"..

Dont know what went wrong.

Interview Question – No such difficult question. Since there was a change in my profile they asked me the reason.
They asked me what qualities would differentiate you from others. WHat qualities you can bring from your past experience.

Process Advisor (Call Centre Executive) Interview

Process Advisor (Call Centre Executive)
Noida (India)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Barclays Shared Services in April 2013.

Interview Details – The interview will have various rounds which will only check your English verbal skills. How well you speak, how confident are you while you speak and how good is your fake accent are the main criteria of selection. A bit of banking related knowledge will definitely add to your selection process. Previous call centre experience will give you salary negotiation power, after selection.

Interview Question – A random credit card holder's query like, 'why have you charged me this amount, when i was told at the time of application that i wont be charged anything for this card', is their favorite question. The interviewer will elongate this question and may give it an ugly side to test your temperament to test your under-pressure skills.   Answer Question
