    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Progressed through the application and online tests but failed the video interview. Video interview was extremely difficult, with difficult time-pressured mathematical questions and scenario-based questions. Probably the most difficult video interview I have had as yet.

    Customer Service Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Online assessments (Verbal reasoning & Maths test) which took around half an hour.

    Then invited to an interview which could book at own convenience which I thought was great.

    Face to face interview was very difficult! Some bizarre questions that are designed to put you on the spot. Glad I attended for experience but felt like that I was given the opportunity to talk about my skills/experience due to nature of questions.

    Business Manager (Vice President) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initial contact with HR then telephone interview with the team lead based in NY, apart from the interview starting with 40 minute delay, good interview. Then came the face to face interview with a peer which was absolutely awful (unnecessary aggression, interruption, and just generally horrible), and the final interview with a very senior business partner who was also lovely however, my entire experience was tainted by horrid lady that I had to tell him I wouldn't accept the role if it interacts with her!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, went through a long assessment, it took at least one hour. I got through this assessment so I was invited for a second assessment which was an online interview. Again took me almost an hour with both technical and behavioral questions. Finally, I got a call to set a phone call two days before so I worked so hard for two days to prepare for the interview but the day of the interview which was at 11 no one called, I waited for more than an hour still nothing I called the HR but no response. I sent an email and didn't get a response yet. For a bank who pretends that it gives importance to values and that it incorporate its values in its day to day business well I would like to say that it's far from being the truth. This is so disrespectful and irresponsable. Actually, it reflects the true image of the bank. I just wanted to share my experience as I don't want other people to have high expectations regarding this bank and get finally

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    very hard and elongated. Had to watch a video which has a very tenuous link to question, could have been quicker if just typed the question out instead of putting it in a role play video. The maths was very difficult as located the information needed to work out the sums was spread across multiple graphs. Also one graph did not have enough information to make sense of the numbers
