    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Barclays in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with a recruiting company and an interview was scheduled. This was a six month project with the option to renew indefinitely. According to the recruiter, candidates have the opportunity to become employees of Barclays if you succeed. Barclays performs a background check which includes a credit report. I was told that if you have delinquencies on your credit report that the amount should not exceed $4000.
