    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied via the Barclays website (Taleo) in mid January 2015 for a specific position that was an exact match for my skillset and experience. In early February, a recruiter contacted me to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager which ultimately occured in mid February. The manager called me at the appointed time and we discussed my backgound, reasons for seeking a new position, and how I would react to hypothetical situations she proposed. The interview went well and I received feedback I would be a great fit for the spot; HOWEVER, the hiring requisition was not really firmed up to the extent she could proceed with the process but would reach out to me when and if the req was firmed up. As late March, I have not heard anything further but I would discuss the position further should it rematerialize at a later date.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2010.

    First it was a telephonic conversation with my (to-be) line manager. He asked the usual questions as to why I was moving out from my prev employer, what keeps me motivated at work, what is SDLC? how would you encounter difficult situations? How important is Service Management? How important is a tool (like Service Now or BMC Remedy) important to carry out Service Management etc..

    • Can you join in within the next 15 days??   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    I had to build a case to get my then initial salary (SGD80000 annually). The case was asked by me by the HR as my previous employer paid just the half of my quote. Therefore, I had to bring in statistics from recruitment companies to reinforce that for "my levels of experience and work nature, I was underpaid". The HR accepted this and gave me chunk (SGD80000) which was a 50% leap!!!!

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Knutsford, England (UK)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    20 minute presentation followed by two 1 hour+ interviews with different interviewers.

    It was competency based which covered the Barclays values and technical questions. The technical questions were easy. The values bit went well too. As with some banks though they define the BA role very narrowly and one of the interviewers was very eager to tell me that the core BA role is about requirements. As a certified and experienced BA I thought it was a bit odd and displayed a remarkable level of ignorance and hubris Some employers forget that it's a 2 way process - the candidate is judging you too for the right fit.

    After chasing a number of times I gave up trying to get feedback. No response or feedback still after 5 weeks. It was a waste of 2 days prep plus travel there and back and 3 hours of my time. Very unprofessional from Barclays.
