    Summer Analyst - Technology Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    30 min video interview, 12 questions. Had 30 seconds to think about each question before answering. Answers had to be 30 sec - 2 min long. This was mainly skills based, asking what I would do in various situations. e.g. How would you feel if you had to put the shared interests of your team above your own? Have you had to do this recently?
    Went ok, although looking up the Barclays corporate values will help a lot as the questions seem to be looking for evidence of these competencies.
    I have not heard back from them yet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very straightforward process taking about 3-4 weeks. I first sent in my application with a couple motivational answers, and I got invited for the video interview stage. I actually found this rather challenging because it was so many questions - But it's all just competency based. I then got invited to the assessment centre and got asked whether I would like to apply for the application development or application management role. At the assessment centre I had a strengths interview very similar to the video interview which went really well, I then had the group exercise which involves solving a puzzle as part of a team. There is nothing you could do to prepare for this part but just try to be involved in as many good ideas as possible. I then had the technical interview - This is what caused me to fail. He asked me a number of basic programming and computer science type questions as I wasn't a comp sci student and didn't have much experience in programming, but when probed on things I said I was competent at it seemed I wasn't actually that experienced in them (oops)
