    Graduate Scheme Treasury Interview

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

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Regarding the online assessment stage.

    Not trivial and pretty difficult and will take an hour in total with practice questions. Practice questions are much easier than the real thing. Make sure you can do simple maths quickly and I would advise doing all sums in Excel as you can reuse all the data easily for each question.

    However very impressed with the quality and attention to feedback. Having not passed this stage I still received a feedback report highlighting my strengths and weaknesses. Barclays setting the bar high with this.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I would recommend you ask if you are up against any internal candidates first as they almost always get the role. This has happened three times now - poor candidate experience from Barclays.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    It was an online interview, including some multi-choice questions and free-response questions which I need to talk in front of the camera. It is for the first-year student without any experience in the finance area, so most are general questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online with the usual CV / filling out of personal details. Was immediately (probably an automatic thing) invited for a video interview and given 5 working days. It was quite unusual because you are mainly assessed by an algorithm, and so I am not sure how much the things I said mattered, compared to my range of vocabulary facial expressions
