    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    40 minutes interview with a Relationship Director, straightforward technical questions, the "big boss" was kind of aggressive - but that's understandable as he's been a leader/boss in the team for so long. HR was very friendly and efficient in getting back emails. Hopefully hear from them about the next step soon.
