    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    Had a first round on the phone - it was mostly behavioral with only one or two technical questions thrown in there. It mostly focused on resume walkthrough, why IBD, why Barclays, etc. Definitely an easy interview all things considered with a very intelligent young man. Did not hear back, but I'm assuming they found other candidates they enjoyed more.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had three interviews, each lasting 30 minutes. I spoke with 3 MDs. They were all great and I enjoyed speaking with them. None of the questions they asked were unexpected. As long as you read the investment banking guides you will be set. Make sure you can speak about yourself and your past internships, and the global markets.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online after doing an informational session at the office. The interview was pretty fair. They asked a lot of fit questions in the first interview and valuation questions in the last one. The second interview had a hard quantitative brain teaser type problem. I was asked to create an equation on the spot.

    Overall, the analysts I spoke to were very helpful and everyone was supportive.
