Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in December 2015.

Interview

I applied through my college portal and got a mail from them to select an interview slot. There was going to be only one interview in order to gain an internship. It was a great opportunity. The interview was divided into two halves; one technical and other behavioral. The result was expected in 2 weeks and I did get a call from them to do so. The interviewer was a very least interested person who was not at all paying attention to what I was speaking and was distracted during the entire interview duration.

    pretty standard - nice people. Two interviews, 1/2 hour each. Two different BA positions were being interviewed for although jobs for two different areas. Each hiring manager, however, appeared to be looking for same skill set with slight tweaks to their specific groups

    Interview

    long way to long process.... i was interviewing for a Business analyst position and i was told they are pretty quick at replying back and that sound great ...

    So First and only in person round of interview , i went in and i was told i was being interviews for a new team leas by some Manager named as Sonya ....

    Some good questions were asked i.e. explain how you will benefit the company and what are the best skills that you can bring to the table ? and etc...

    So once done with the interview i had a great vibe, because i was told we are looking forward to see you working with us and i was even asked if you were asked for an offer when can you start ??

    Its been a week and there is no answer not even yes or no .. just no feedback at all from the hiring manager ... how can such a big company can't reply you back with a feedback ??

    Worst company ever seriously....

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The entire process takes months. HR tells you they'll call you in 2 weeks and then calls you a month later saying they'll call you in 2 more weeks. Interviews are more based on personality than testing knowledge. This is because the firm has a "frat bro" culture.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. The interviewers are more concerned with whether or not you'll work 12 months before realizing how much the place sucks and move on.   Answer Question
