    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Unduly lengthy and cumbersome - several rounds of interviews (3) over about 3 months. Initially met with a panel, then came back to meet the manager 1 on 1, then came back to meet the manager's manager 1 on 1, then came back again to meet the manager.

    Interview process was standard as i had prior experience in the industry. Questions were expected and industry standard. The interview process took a long time, as in several months. This was longer than expected, which was a little bit frustrating.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Relatively informal, ask for you goals and discuss your strengths as well as weaknesses etc. Recently believe they've reformed the interview process. Went into the office on a hot day which is always off putting. There didn't seem to be any particular structure regarding the interview...very informal.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays in January 2011.

    Interview

    Just conversational with the Director and an unorganized VP. Director asked me questions on performing business analyst roles. The VP was demonstrating me the MS application that they were going to migrate, and the high level document, which was most basic I have ever seen as a specification, and was gauging interest about the project.

    Wasn't sure about that and it was quite intimidating to be honest and as I was unemployed they had a leverage to take me down on compensation
