Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2016.

Interview

I was interviewed by two managers. My confirmation email said it would take one hour, but it actually took two. It was a good interview and the managers really made me feel comfortable doing the process. I thought i interviewed well but I guess not since I did not get the job.
