    Operations Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Manchester, England) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Initial application, strengths based immersive assessment, online interview. 10 days after completing the interview I get an email saying that they had received a sufficient number of applications and that my application couldn’t be progressed further. If they have enough applications, they should close the programme and not waste people’s time. Further, they didn’t provide any feedback and I’m quite sure they haven’t even bothered having a look at my interview. Wouldn’t want to work for a company that treats their employees so badly.

    I applied online for a temp position, after 3 days the recruiter contacted me,I did a screening on the phone and they sent me a link to a video interview,,my interview went well, just 11 pre-recorded competency based questions using STAR technique.
    Then they made me wait for 2 weeks so I had to email them,,somebody contacted me the same day saying they decided to chose an internal candidate.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (Manchester, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted my C.V on line , Informed they wanted to interview me which then took another 4 days before I got a date and time . Phone Interview took maximum 10 minutes .
    Sent an on line test which took 1 and half hours .

    Interview Questions

    • Phone Interview was terrible he asked me to describe my current role and as soon as I mentioned Selenium WebDriver he stopped me and said OK please click on the link I am about to send and carry out the on line test. I may as well be speaking to a robot. Barclays are so big on automation they should have automated this guy too. It was obvious he was too busy or preoccupied .   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Manchester, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    One phone interview -asking basics about java, myself and what I am looking at Barclays. One on-site interview which lasted about 3 hours and one online coding interview where I have been recorded the whole time. The interview overall was average, just because of the peer pressure of the recorded video rather than the difficulty of the problems.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter, then an online test on the company's site and then a face to face interview with a manager. The phone interview and the test were really easy. The interview was something really different. They didn't care about my background. They didn't ask me anything about the role or the company. I had to answer to answer 7 - 8 questions.
