    If anyone needs help with an online test, email me at alex_henry2000 at outlook.c o m. I charge £15 per test, guarantee a pass and will take payment after the test is complete. Take down my email just in case you need me in the future.

    Also, if your going to do something like this, dont use your real name! I found you on linkedin in two seconds! HR has access to google too.... They know your name and exactly when you interviewed! Good thing you didnt attach your bank details....

    Hi Dilbina, may I ask what position that you applied for?

    I did the tests for Barcap off-cycle internship programs few weeks ago and havent heard from them since.. a bit weird as they process application pretty fast..

    thanks

    Hey Honger,

    I applied for an HR internship. I heard back from them within ten minutes after passing my numerical reasoning test, and within a day or two after passing the verbal reasoning test. I don't know if this means that your application will not be taken further or not, but just thought you might like to know.

    Also, has anyone gone in for an Assessment Centre for one of the softer internships like HR? Was there another numerical reasoning test, or was it all about communication and verbal reasoning? Any advice would be very much appreciated!

    @GianlucaCu: Yeah, I was in the same situation as you.. then last week I got an email saying that all positions for this season recruitment have been filled. But they will keep my application on record in case something becomes available.. Well, i guess it counts for nothing.

    Hey guys, is it too late to apply for Graduate program IBD now? I know most of IB have already finished their recruitment by now but I still see the application for IBD with Barcap open..

    Hi Windstruck,

    I was just checking out if there were a deadline for submitting the app for IBD at Barcap but there isn't. Efinancialcareers says that the deadline it's "rolling". I have applied on Jan 26, 2012, passed the numerical test and went after the verbal one. After that, I got a message saying that my app is under review by the recruitment team. It's been 2 weeks so far. I am wondering to drop a call to the recruitment team tomorrow just to check wheather my verbal test was alright and if they will proceed further with the application.

    Does anybody know how long does it take to get a response by barcap after submitting the verbal test?

    Thanks anyone

    • Thom

    The specific questions were:
    What is the difference between Corp and Cap?
    Name a project that could be in both.

    She took perfect time for me, no rush, she let me finish, gave me time to ask questions.
    British accent was strong, so be prepared on that.

    @northernInd nah, I was merely doing everyone else a favor. I applied for a different track altogether. And I agree with @verbose, may the best one win!

    @ NorthernInd: Where is the competitive spirit! The best shall win .and this info is out there!

    Hey all I found this website and this girl from Singapore just got offered - she documented her entire hiring process with BarCap (for Tech) and I think it'll be extremely helpful for those preparing... http://gankahhwee.com/2010/09/10/getting-into-barclays-capital-technology-graduate-programme-in-singapore/

    I myself have applied for the marketing program and have completed all the tests... status still says "your application is under consideration" so fingers crossed, we'll see!!

    You don't suppose this may help those you're competing against do you? Genius

    @ Krutip15

    Thanks for sharing your experience :)

    How long did they say that they'll take to get back to you?

    • krutip15

    Hey guys - i just had my phone interview this morning so i thought i'd share some info

    the interview is the same for everyone regardless of which division you apply to. The interview was competency based - all questions were based on experiences and how you dealt with it. There are three sections but can't remember what they are anymore - sorry! my interview was extremely early because of the time difference

    some questions they asked:
    1. why barcap?
    2. what is your understanding of how barclays is structured?
    3. how did you hear about barclays?
    4. describe a time where you had limited time to hand in something and how you dealt with it
    5. describe a time when you had to deal with someone who behaves difficulty and what was the outcome
    6. describe a time where you had an idea and put it forth
    7. describe a time where there was an issue that arose and needed to be dealt with and resolved in the shortest time possible. How did you do this? How did you contribute to the solution?

    i think there were a few more but i can't remember :o(

    hope this helps!

    I am going to have a telephone with BarCap on this Thursday. I have applied Technology internship. Did anyone have it? Could anyone tell me what questions the HR ask really? It is my first interview ever!!!!! Thank you!!!!

    Hey lauralo and wackymacky what did you apply for? what it for the graduate programme?
    Do you remember what questions you got asked for the telephone interview?


  • 13 November 2009 - 1:32am
    • wackymacky

    Hey lauralo, what position/location did you apply for? I think it is quite normal procedure. I heard back about passing the telephone interview almost over a month ago (I interviewed 5th of Ocbtober) and they still have to schedule the next rounds.


  • 12 November 2009 - 3:38pm
    • lauralou

    I passed Barclays telephone and assessment interview recently and was told I would be hearing from the manager of the hiring branch. I haven't heard anything for nearly a week is this normal procedure? Do they normally take so long to get back to the candidate?

    Heads up to all the guys waiting to hear about finance internships...
    I'm in the finance dept. at BarCap at the moment on Industrial Placement and the assessment centre for Finance interns took place yesterday and they should be finishing up sometime this week, so if you haven't heard by now it may not be good news. Sorry!

    Regards

    Hey I had applied for a position in finance...didn't make it though, and they seem to be cutting jbs left right and centre so that doesn't help too much either. Hope you guys are having better luck
