The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (Houston, TX) in January 2011.
The interview starts with a phone screen, and then onside with 4-5 group members. It's very nice.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (Pune (East Timor)) in July 2015.
Interview process is more or less the same. What matters is the interviewers behavior and attitude. how does Barclay's being such as esteemed organization hire such guys. His attitude was that of a butcher and sounded like carpenter. With his continuous interruptions in the middle of answers, it was like he was only interviewing to showcase he is the boss in the process. My serious suggestion to Barclays HR team - Guys, keep a good interviewer. because the interviewer is representing your organization and work ethics.

Technical round was of easy questions based on OOPS,OS,general algo based. Hr round was normal behaviour questions related. In the end 9 students were selected for job offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays.
The hiring process included the typical online-assessment work (numerical/verbal reasoning) which as always seems somewhat straightforward. About a week after hearing I had passed this phase, I was invited to interview. The interview was split into two halves lasting about 45 minutes' each, the first was competency-focused and asked the usual "think of a time" style questions. The latter half of the interview lasted a further 45 minutes and involved reading through code and talking about what it did, what problems if any existed with it and how it could be proved. As the code chosen was from an older system, there were plenty of talking points. The interviewers were personable and friendly, clearly comfortable discussing the job and the role and encouraged answering any questions about Barclays itself - they were very much open to questions about the future work available as far as was possible to discuss. Overall, a good experience.
- There wasn't really a difficult or unexpected question during this interview - the most unexpected part of the intervieww was the unknown code, but you'd expect to be looking at new code when you start so this is not an unrealistic demand in interview. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in July 2009.
1st stage phone interview: general c++ questions from all possible areas: constness, inheritance, smart pointers, templates, STL, multithreading etc. Example: What is 'mutable'? Give an example where you used it. 2nd stage inhouse interview: Four tasks - I had to write code on paper. The last one was to write tree-related algorithm. Overall it wasn't difficult, but I failed because I did a few stupid mistakes in a basic questions. So my recommendation would be: review basic concepts and not only advanced.
