    HR Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Online application, 1 VC with the hiring manager, 1:1 interview with the local HR rep, 1 phone call with London HR manager. Received an offer the day after my last interview, sent all my documents for the pre-employment screening, never came back to me once they realized my notification period was 3 months (as said at the very beginning of the process ...)
