Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (San Francisco, CA) in May 2009.

Interview

The HR was very tough and cold. Very random questions and many basic questions such as "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" Did not have a connection. I hope I will be more lucky next time. I my opinion Barclays is a good company. I will try again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Barclays in January 2010.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward interview with questions straight from the Vault guide. One brainteaser where they asked the interest rate for a bond that you pay 10 for today to receive 50 in 4 years. Case interview where they walk you through financial statements and ask you what you think they imply about the company that they speak to you about.

    • Asked why you know they completed an acquisition and on top of jump in revenue and debt load as well as a spike in interest expense, you must also remember to mention goodwill.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays in January 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring process was brief , barely lasted for about 30 mins, where they grilled me on my resume, my past experience, my MBA curriculum.
    Advice to other prospective applicants - dress up well, know your resume, smile.
    People - nice though aggressive , hence be yourself , quick thinking def helps as they will ask a lot of personality based questions
