Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY).

Interview

Applied in early November with a resume and cover letter. Got an email from the recruiter to set up a phone interview about a month later with only a day or two notice before the interview times. Was supposed to hear about next steps within a couple of days after but hadn't heard back for 2 weeks. Had to reach out to a couple different people for them to tell me no. Claimed the application system sent me a notification but it never did.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the HK office. First round was two Skype interviews, with one associate and one first-year analyst. Questions were mainly about resume, with a bit of easy tech and strengths/weakness. They also test your language ability, like mandarin or canto. Second round was one Skype interview with an AVP, very technical. Final round was in NY, still waiting for the result.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Barclays (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Around 3 weeks after submitting the application and was invited to a skype interview with two interviewers. Started with basic questions, then moved on to more technical ones. Interviewers were generally friendly, and both of the interviews had similar questions. Technicals are not too hard, though interviewing through Skype is a bit more stressful than through phone.

    Interview

    First round phone screening by an analyst. Then had a on-campus one-on-one interview but didn't get into the superday. The process took around 2 weeks. The questions are pretty standard for investment banking. Nothing surprising.

    The application was conducted through our college's online application system. Then I received an invitation to the interview. The interviewers had a presentation the day before and a small event that allowed us to network with interviewers. The actual interview took place at the career service and lasted for 20-min on.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting, 2 rounds on campus

    Firm came on campus in early spring semester, followed by 2 weeks of preparation before resume drops (words cannot street how beneficial talking to people at the firm / networking is, however terrible it may be at the time is). First round on campus interviews (1 half hour interview) a week later, followed by final round on campus (1 hour interview with 2 senior people) a week later.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Standard from summer analyst (intern) through 3rd year analyst/associate level (you might have some wiggle room on your bonus but that's a slippery slope)
