    FIG Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    40 minutes interview with a Relationship Director, straightforward technical questions, the "big boss" was kind of aggressive - but that's understandable as he's been a leader/boss in the team for so long. HR was very friendly and efficient in getting back emails. Hopefully hear from them about the next step soon.

    Interview

    The interviews lasted over three days. First I met with the general counsel. Then he had me meet with several of the other lawyers in the department. Then he had me meet with several heads of businesses. All were fairly short conversations, about 30 min each. No real surprises.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I totally enjoyed being interviewed at Barclays. They make the process serious but easy and they focus a lot on your values, how you behave like a person and if you act with integrity. It is a company with a great history and reputation, and they treat people how they deserve without discrimination. My advice is: go prepared for behavioral questions, know about the company and be yourself, and you will have an opportunity and a lot of growth possibilities.
