    Care Relationship Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee who referred me to this position. A telephonic interview that lasted for 45 mins and questions on general skill for the position and behavioral. An onsite interview with 2 people (Hiring Manager and Another Data Scientist) for 30 mins each. Questions were on my research and I was surprised to know that they don't have any team member with a Ph.D. especially when this position asked for a Doctorate degree. There was a big gap between research and what they were expecting for this position. Two weeks later I had to send a couple of emails to the HR and came to know that I was not considered for this position. Overall the interview process was useless and have the right people who can interview someone with a doctorate degree.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    The interviewers seemed to play "good cop, bad cop". I spoke with two managers at once. One of which would later become my direct team lead and the other would be the lead of the escalation team. One focused on the details of the position while the other focused on my abilities and qualifications.
