    Interview

    First round contained a HireVue interview which contained coding, behavioral and quantitative type questions. The mail they sent indicated that it would be more behavioral and the coding questions were unexpected. And the entire interview was quite long

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    Combination of behavioral questions and markets questions. Nothing particularly surprising, just need to have rehearsed your behavioral answers and be sure that you are familiar with / have an opinion on what's happening in markets at the time of your interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    You have to first do a business insight assessment, where they give you questions framed around a case. Close enough to real-life compliance work. Requires you to be detail-oriented, and find mistakes among figures given to you. Second round is the video interview. Another case study is presented to you, where you have to give video answers to questions posed to you. This case study is amped up in difficulty, and involves some technical knowledge about compliance regulations.

    Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process was very disorganized and disappointing from start to finish. I was contacted in May for a role and was strung along for 4 months, told I was getting an offer, then nothing. I went in for face to face interviews, both of which ended up getting cancelled after I waited for over 40 mins each time. Not to mention, the video technology which they could not get working. I was very disappointed as the leadership seems great to work with and they are willing to invest in technology and people, but happy in the end because this is probably indicative of the overall employee experience.
