Vice President Interview

Vice President
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Barclays Wealth.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty much one sided monologue with the interviewer doing the talking.It looked like he wanted to spend some time on a friday afternoon with no clear agenda in mind. He was very nice and warm as a person, but the interview looked more like a coffee chat (monologue).He didn't ask me anything, only asked me what questions I had.

Interview Question – No question was difficult because he didnt ask anything.He only talked and talked when I asked him something and this went on for 1 hr.   Answer Question

Interview Details – The interviewer had no clue. Most of the bankers have no experience managing money. I can't possibly in good conscience sell a pile of crap to my clients of hnwi some of which are personal friends
