Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays.

Interview

It was pretty straight forward. You first take a test on different scenarios you'll be given in a typical work day and then you do an online interview. Both were pretty difficult. I recommend preparing yourself with typical interview questions that you give yourself around a minute to answer each to completion.
