IB. Had some trouble with my applications so I had to go back and forth with HR hope I wasn't dinged because of it.

Had the same issue. They fixed my app literally 2 hours before deadline closed when I thought I completed my submission 2 months ago. No problems on my end after getting in touch with my network to double-check.

First wave of invites will be out in early March.

If you look at past threads you can see when people got phone calls and when invites started being sent out

Congrats! When was this? Am still waiting :/

Feb 20, 2019

This afternoon. I really thought I wasn't going to hear back at all

Feb 19, 2019

Do you think it's sent out in waves? or should I officially give up hope? :((

Feb 20, 2019

no need to stress at this point, phone screens go out in waves based on recruiting (target/non target, ocr/hirevue)

What questions did you guys get on the HireVue portion?

Mar 2, 2019

Bump. Any insight on the Springboard Hirevue would be greatly appreciated. This will be my first hirevue.

Mar 5, 2019

Has anyone heard back from Barclays yet?

Feb 26, 2019

are there two different timelines for the different tracks? Some people just got hirevue ( I got mine a week ago) and some people already had interviews.

Feb 20, 2019

yes, core schools that get OCR had in-person interviews instead of hirevue

Congrats. Fingers crossed they kept some room for the schools they didn't do alumni phone calls for.

Thank you! I didn't get an alumni phone interview. They came on campus.

That being said, I'm pretty sure most spots are gonna be filled throughout this month like last year! Don't worry about it.

Great. A recruiter let me do my Hirevue a couple of days later than the deadline so hopefully they did not reject me
