Compliance Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in November 2011.

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter to interview for this position. The recruiter was great, but when I showed up to be interviewed by someone in the London office the video conference was not set up. They had HR and a Technician trying to set up the VC for ten minutes to no avail. HR suggested to the hiring manager that we just conduct the interview of the phone, but the hiring manger refused and asked me to come back another day. I seriously considered not going back, but did. The second time, the VC worked and I was finally able to interview. Note, the hiring manager did apologize for the VC not working, but it did not seem very geniune.

I was then called back and had to take a "test" and met with the temporary worker in the position as well as somone in a chief of staff type role. The test presented about 12 pages of materials where I had to review and look for typos, grammer issues, etc. I went over the test with the temp and then met with the chief of staff. Both were very nice but what I found odd was the chief of staff immediately mentioned that the job may not be available right away as they were having budget issues and needed approval to fill the the position.

According to my recruiter I had gotten good feedback but ultimately never heard back from Barclays.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The initial online form was fairly standard. You needed to write about your motivations for working in compliance. The video interview was competency based. It was rather off putting being interviewed by an computer programme. You had two minutes to answer each question.
