    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in September 2017.

    It started off with filling out a form, and shortly after I was provided with an online test which I had to fill out.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The employees that interviewed me were extremely polite and asked relevant questions. They assured me it was okay if I didn't know the answer to something and I knew it wasn't a test to see if I would receive an offer or not. They eased me into the interview and it was more of a conversation, not a rapid fire questioning session.

    Interview Questions

    • Resume details, leadership experience, explain a conflict/challenge you faced, why Barclays. One technical question, was asked about which three lines I would look at in a financial statement and why.   Answer Question

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral questions and specifics about your background.   Answer Question

    Transition From Military Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knutsford, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (Knutsford, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A cv and interview skills session followed by 2 interviews with department/hiring managers.

    Easy interview was with a different person, on concentrating on a technical area of the company (your choice) and the other on ethics, standards and personal experiences.

    Good practice using STAR technique in the interviews and was put under medium pressure (although I do talk naturally, to anyone, in almost any circumstance).

    From the interviews, a referral to another manager has led to ongoing dialogue. A good way to put a face to a name/CV and break down the HR hiring hurdle of standing out. Still had to apply formally, but it helps me find out more about the areas I want to work in and helps the company identify where you might fit best.

    This was carried out 6 months in advance of me being available to seek new work, and I am awaiting the outcome. Very positive experience and the company/site is very attractive.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation when your personal standards were put to the test and how you resolved it.   Answer Question
