    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England) in December 2020.

    Interview

    There was 2 parts to the process a verbal reasoning test which was split into 2 parts and then straight away an interview therefore I don’t think the application is reviewed before this.

    Interview

    Sent in application. After, I was sent a link to complete psychometric tests which had numerical reasoning (alot of graphs , charts and analysing work). I did well and they accepted me to have a video interview on HireVue. This is a little harder and more awkward as the question are pre recorded.

    Applied online and then got an email telling me to complete a video interview a few hours later. The interview consisted of 12 questions, some of which asked you how you would respond in a particular situation, one asked you to write a letter to a senior employee who you networked with and the others asked about motivations. Haven't heard back yet

    Interview

    Apply online with CV and get automatically filtered through to a Hirevue interactive interview. The video interview combines video responses and written responses to several competency and fit questions. The method of testing is unusual and the format of the interview was never properly communicated, questions seemed irrelevant.
