    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Barclays Capital (Pune) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Initial communication vague as to nature of the work. Understandable considering the company in question. Work ethic, attitude and willingness to learn were valued more in the entire process than almost any other factor. Panel is approachable and friendly and interested in listening to whatever you have to say. They are looking for high performers who'll add value to the work they do as well as the company culture.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Vague nature of the work and shift work.
