Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY) in October 2017.

Interview

The employees that interviewed me were extremely polite and asked relevant questions. They assured me it was okay if I didn't know the answer to something and I knew it wasn't a test to see if I would receive an offer or not. They eased me into the interview and it was more of a conversation, not a rapid fire questioning session.

Interview Questions

  • Resume details, leadership experience, explain a conflict/challenge you faced, why Barclays. One technical question, was asked about which three lines I would look at in a financial statement and why.   Answer Question

    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.

    Application

    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.
