Summer Technology Analyst Interview

Summer Technology Analyst
London, England

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Barclays Capital in October 2013.

Interview Details Went through the logical and numerical tests. Got a phone Interview with a very nice woman who was willing to make me feel comfortable. It was a strengths-based interview with questions on teamwork, relationships in a team, dealing with large projects... etc
Then I was invited to the Assessment Center. We were about 10 summer/graduate applicants. 2 groups were made.
- Group task : assembling sort of a rubik's cube with certain constraints
- Strengths-Based Interview pretty much like the phone interview
- Technical Interview with questions on projects I had completed, data structures, software developping processes etc

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Barclays Capital in February 2014.

Interview Details Was interviewed by two VP's. One technical interview and one HR + technical. First interviewer was not responding to my answers and was just shooting a lot of questions on Java, DBMS and Finance. The second interviewer was nice and asked questions about Multithreading and SQL. All HR questions were same what you will have at a bank. Did not like the way the interview. Even thought I answered all questions correctly they rejected me. Don't know what they want.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2014.

Interview Details Applied through campus recruiting. attended the superday. Interviewed at Barcap NY office. 1 tech round. 1 behavior round. 1 hr round. 30 mins each for the first two round. 15 mins for the hr round. People are really nice. The hr people great me at the front door and led me to the interviewers. The interviewers would lead me back. Relaxed working environment. The tech interviewer will ask some really easy questions like "what do you like about technology" to calm you down. And will then ask some basic OOP or algorithm questions. Then some networking or system infrastructure questions. Other times it was mostly conversational. The interviewer really try to understand if you really want to do this or not. So be yourself.

Interview Question – Asked a lot about very detailed questions about past experiences in the tech round. Be prepared for anything. Nothing really unexpected though.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None
