    Hi everyone,

    So I applied for a Community Banker position at Barclays and have passed the online assessment stage and have been invited to schedule an interview.

    The job description was quite vague and looking around online I could only find this - it just goes on about community bankers go around the bank floor with an ipad and "point customers to machines for paying in, withdrawing and other banking tasks"

    Surely there's more to it than that? Does anybody have more insight to this role or advice for the interview?

    Make sure to know about these:

    Interpersonal skills, technical skills

    You may also be doing a group assessment with a case study.

    I don't want to bother you by going too much into detail and just going to say good luck.

    I haven't had an interview in Barclays myself because I never applied there, yet. I just found couple of reviews from other people who have. Do not worry, they seem quite believable.
