    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online, then got contacted by HR by email regarding my minimum salary requirements. HR then set up 1st round phone interview with the hiring manager. 2nd round interview was by WebEx with the hiring manager, their manager and two other team members. The hiring manager gave me a case to assess my credit skills. I was told that I will be contacted in a week. I have not heard back for 2.5 weeks, contacted the hiring manager, then HR and received a rejection email from HR. The email had details of the HR rep with suggestion to contact this person for more detailed feedback. I contacted the HR person and the hiring manager for feedback, have not heard back from either one, which is very unprofessional. Why offer to contact for feedback if you have not intention of providing it?

    Credit Derivatives Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barclays (Parsippany, NJ (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an interview within two days, following a general HR interview. I was called for a super day kind of video interview. I received excellent feedback from every interviewer except one interviewer who was least interested and was asking random nonrelated questions and kept asserting that you are overqualified for this position and will not stay longer.

    Additionally, he asked me about the Barclays proprietry software and trade management software and commented that we are looking for someone who knows this software and can add value from Day 1.

    I don't know how one can know about the software mentioned above if a person has not worked in the company in the past.
