    Did anyone have a Laz int and not receive a decision at the end of the call? Some people got instant acceptance to AC, but I was told I'd hear back in 2 days, which I'm assuming is just a delayed rej

    Both retail/business banking and IB part are included in the front office SW = they are customer facing.

    SPRING WEEK:
    There are three different Barclays Spring Weeks 'Front Office' (FO), Technology and Business Functions, see below.

    Front Office = IBD (Corporate Finance, M&A, FIG, Leveraged Finance, DCM, RSG, ECM), Global Markets (Sales, Trading, Research & Strategy) and Personal & Corporate Banking (Personal Banking, Corporate Banking, Barclaycard and Wealth & Investment)

    Technology = obvious

    Business Functions = Compliance, Finance, Operations, Risk and Treasury


    BUSINESS AREAS:
    There are three different business areas Investment Bank, Personal & Corporate Banking Barclaycard, Business Functions. See the link below, (technology comes under business functions even though it has a separate SW)

    yea it was alright. It was 30 min though and a bit more in depth than other peoples (dont ask me why lol )
    But the questions weren´t hard in particular, just the phone quality was insanely bad
    Mine was 17 mins.. I can probably expect a rejection. Mine was horrible.

    GS will start inviting to interviews next week, so you guys can chill.
    CS maybe doesnt look so promising, but you never know.

    I actually have an interview at CS the 29nd and was given it maybe 5 days ago, so dont really know there. But a friend spoke to HR at GS, most interviews will be given out during next week. Only people who had other offers and contacted GS personally got an interview I would reckon.

    I don't see why some are saying their interviews were horrible. What could they have possibly asked that made you think that?
