  • Good company. Bad culture. I've never worked in a company with so much push back regarding following its own policies

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Barclays (Henderson, NV) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 minutes early for my interview but the team manager/interviewer was a 1/2 hour late. She apologized due to meetings but still did not make a great impression. The interview was not stressful until work hours were discussed. She was perturbed because I specifically needed day hours Monday to Friday due to evening and Sat commitments with a part-time teaching position. I received a rejection email later the same day but it was for another position I applied for online a week or two earlier--not the position I was interviewed for. I had sent a thank you note, but also sent the recruiter a note to clarify the rejection email but I never received a response. I was promised an answer a week later--that never came. The biggest turnoff was that the job description mentioned nothing about being flexible to work weekends and evenings or I would not have wasted my time applying. Otherwise, the benefit plan mentioned was very good as were performance incentives and a nice complex and area to work in.
