Finance Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in November 2011.

Interview

I initially found out about the company because of an information session I signed up for at my college. I applied for their 3-day boot camp. Even though the interview was on the final day, you know they are interviewing you the whole time. The first day was more of an initial meet and greet with students, HR, and management. You talk about how to improve your resume, doing an elevator pitch and then we met for drinks and appetizers. The second day there were a lot of presentations from interns, senior management, and analysts. We discussed to roles of operations and finance and what students would do during their internship. In addition to that we had a case study to present which was a little nerve racking and fun at the same time. The day of the interview I was nervous but I tried my hardest to keep my composure. In the end I got an offer.

    Applied through my college career site. The process was very quick and seamless. It was only one round where I interviewed with two Vice Presidents. A couple of weeks later, I received an offer to become a Summer Analyst and then was extended a Full Time Offer after the program was over. Great program where they promote learning.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I had a series of two interviews. The first interview was with a VP which was 1 on 1. He was on his blackberry half of the time, but seemed to like me since I got a second round. No technical questions but asked about previous internship experience and went into detail with that.

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. The offer was on the table and a very handsome one I may add. Again, this is an internship offer, not a job, so no negotiating going on here.

    The first step in the process was being taken out to dinner for drinks and dinner the night before the interview. This occurred after being selected for an interview after the application process. There were 4 reps from barclays and the interviews were in a 2 on 1 format split up into 2 separate groups.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    very hard and elongated. Had to watch a video which has a very tenuous link to question, could have been quicker if just typed the question out instead of putting it in a role play video. The maths was very difficult as located the information needed to work out the sums was spread across multiple graphs. Also one graph did not have enough information to make sense of the numbers

    Reasons for Declining

    Got selected last year for Finance position after 3 rounds by senior mgmt. Supplied salary details too. Later was informed that they could offer Job on contract for 3 -6 month initally. It was a permanent position but they later changed it for reasons best known to them.I tried to reason with them with all humiltity. afterall,You cant make a U turn after having called a candidate from different city twice.I bore the travelling expenses on my own too.The HR just shut off completely.No response to calls or emails.
    This was absolutely bizzare way of dealing with a candidate.No basic courtesy.
    Hindsight, I feel good I didnt get into this company.
    Would recommend the same to all people who are considering going or joining Barclays Technology center Pune.
