    Cool. I will be joining Barclays (middle/back office) in 2017 if anyone has any questions. Got the offer after completing an internship.
    How did you find the working culture in Barclays? Were there any reasons (beside you getting an offer) that made you want to stay?

    For those of you who have done Business Insight 2 assessment (Online Interview), do you have any advice on how to prepare? Also, roughly how long did it take?

    Hi Commercial Paper,

    Hope your application goes well. Do you mind shedding some light on Barclay's video interview? Are the questions similar to last year's strength based Qs? Many thanks and good luck!

    I haven't done it but my understanding is you'll be asked questions in a role play, about a particular scenario and that you cannot prepare for it. It's timed and also there will be some numerical questions. Basically like the first test but you're saying what you'd do rather than ranking options.

    Same here - did the test last week, got the results today.
    I completed Barclays Business Insight Online Assesment 1 around 40 minutes ago and when I completed it took me to a page saying "There are no more assessments to take- please return to your application." However, other than clicking "back" to the go to the previous page, there is no where else I can click on that page. I also have not received any email saying acknowledging that I have completed the test
    i.e. an email saying "Thank you for completing the test".

    I understand that one may not get their result straight away, however I believe other people on this thread said that they got an acknowledgement email straight after completing the assessment. So I am a bit concerned about this.

    Also, on this web page
    http://joinus.barclays.com/emea/appl...and-selection/
    it says
    "You'll hear back from us shortly with a constructive strengths-based feedback report" and yet I have not received that.

    I hope this is not because I took like 6 hours to complete it
    (I know that is really long but I got stuck on 1 or 2 calculation questions and wanted to carefully check everything through)

    Has anyone else had the same problem as me?

    Don't worry, they took about a week - 10 days to get back to most of us even with the feedback reports.

    In the same boat; I completed on Friday and heard nothing since then. Fingers crossed for both of us.

    Hey, I was in the same boat as you. Don't worry. You'll get the insight 2 if you make the cut (I got it as well - dunno how I did though).

    I think that some of the streams are automated whilst some are not which is why it takes some time to process. Also, when I submitted my application, apparently I had some information missing due to a system error which is why I might've been delayed.
