    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The initial communications was through my campus website. I received an on campus interview for a summer position. At the interview, I was interviewed by two people. I did not know much information about finance or the structure of Barclays, however, the interviewers did not seem to mind. I was honest and open about my lack of knowledge but willingness to learn. I had great work experience and concrete answers to behavioral questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Consisted of a phone interview followed by an assessment centre. The phone interview lasted for at least with quite alot of demanding questions. You need to have a lot of knowledge on the investment banking industry. And also be prepared to answer competency questions. I was rather surprised to be called for the assessment centre. The assessment centre consisted of an interview, case presentation and a group exercise. For me, the case presentation was quite a daunting experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays in January 2011.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online to Barclays, I was notified through email that I was accepted for an on-campus interview. I had five days to prepare between receiving the notification and the scheduled interview. There were two interviews, 30 minutes each, with two separate and very different interviewers. One interviewer focused more on behavioral questions while the other asked more general questions, but it was challenging speaking to one of the interviewers, who seemed disinterested and unimpressed, while the other interviewer was very enthusiastic.
