Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru (India)
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Bengaluru (India)) in July 2010.

Interview

Contacted initially by a recruitment consultant, had 2 rounds of interview within a week and a half. Then no communication for 2 weeks. Checked with the consultant who said 'they cannot hire you as an AVP now!'. I mentioned I interviewed for AM and would be happy with that grade. Them there was confusion for a while, before the offer was made.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Noida (India)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Usually, 2 HR rounds + 2 Manager/ VP rounds + 1 round taken by 2 already working experienced colleagues. But if your are not lucky then you may get an additional bonus round too. HR rounds are also quite technical, may be after a few more years the HR guys would attain CA degrees.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing is tough if you really are starving and have already made your mind to take your next step, trust me on that, still prepare well by reading google. A reference may really work out for you, specially if someone is placed at manager or above grade (typical LALA culture), though i wasn't that lucky and have gone through deep grilling.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    asked for 40% increment on my present fixed salary, accepted a 35% increase

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Barclays (Noida (India)).

    Interview

    It was a case study followed by personal interview.
    Case was for a corporate lending decision. Based upon the financials and business outlook, lending decision has to be taken. Cash flow statement was half prepared, some blanks were required to be filled.

    Reasons for Declining

    Didnt like the way interview was carried. It was head of the department, and sounded really dumb and frustrated out of his life.

    It felt that the job is totally donkey's job and you would be hired from Neck down.

    No culture for learning or growth.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (Noida (India)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Telephonic interview followed by a face to face then a HR round. Good and simple process. They will try to find the banking knowledge in you. HR process was very slow. After clearing all the rounds and submitting the documents, HR took 3 months to release the offer.
