    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Barclays.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barclays in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    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.
