    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    My interviewer was wonderful at the assessment centre, it was about an hour long and it felt very relaxed, it looked like she was interested in what I had to say which made it easy to recite examples, as long as you have prepared and are enthusiastic about the role that you have applied to then you should be fine!

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    First an application form with three questions including your motivations behind applying to barclays and a question dedicated to barclays values. This is followed by a culture test and questionnaire and then a numerical test. If you pass this stage successfully you have a telephone interview. This is an HR interview so do not expect anything really technical

    Application

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

    Interview

    Relatively straight forward interview. The day begins with a networking event where you get the opportunity to speak to current employees. After this, I was taken to an individual room where I was given 10 minutes to read a problem statement which i then had to present back ideas and solutions. The final part was a standard interview.
