    Super Day at Barclays, hiring event. Interviewed with three senior managers (managing directors, group heads, etc.) Interview was intense. It took about an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Too many people interviewing (US and UK) and process is too long before an offer.
    The turnover rate in HR is very high; trading floor setup; promotion process is inconsistent; and UK tells US what to do so no real ownership with project start to finish
