Was wondering as well.. haven't heard anything. which track did you apply for?

Feb 19, 2019

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.

Feb 19, 2019

What sort of trouble? I was having some as well..

it was on their end so I am not entirely sure why my application was messed up, but they said they fixed 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

Feb 20, 2019

Did you have a phone call with Barclays? If so when?

I got a hirevue for the springboard

Feb 20, 2019

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 20, 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)

Feb 20, 2019

Also just got an online video interview

Feb 25, 2019

did a phone screen on the 22nd

What questions did you guys get on the HireVue portion?

Mar 3, 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?

Mar 6, 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.

  • topboy
  •  Mar 6, 2019

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

Mar 6, 2019

Did a phone interview with an alum last Tuesday and was invited last Thursday

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

Does anyone know what the event is supposed to be like? How many kids are going to be there, and how many offers they will most likely hand out?

  • topboy
  •  Apr 3, 2019

About 80 kids are invited. I've heard it's 60% Banking and 40% S&T kids split in the room. Day 1 is networking/panels/pillars of wall st training/trading simulation game. Day 2 is superday/interviews.

Also I'm not sure if this is school specific but an alumni told me there's no hard cap to how many offers they're willing to give per school at the springboard. They'll invite whoever they like to come work for them.

Can't confirm this number at all but I've also been told that previously roughly 1/4 of attendees have ended up with offers

Has anyone heard back yet? (Edit: for internship offers, did the Women's Superday).

  • topboy
  •  Apr 11, 2019

I imagine all invites have gone out by now.. the event is 12 days away.

Then again, I know some banks this cycle have been inviting people 3-4 days before the event so who knows

Anyone know what the superday is like?

Apr 12, 2019

Bump, has anyone heard back for internship offers? Thought we were getting decisions by the end of this week?

  • topboy
  •  Apr 13, 2019

I've heard those of you at the first superday (women's day) won't get offers until the 2nd superday (april 24, diversity day). Decisions are made tho. I'm told everyone should know by May 1 as offers will take 3-5 days after the springboard day

Apr 17, 2019

what was the superday like? technical heavy, or more leaning towards behavioral?

  • topboy
  •  Apr 24, 2019

For future readers: The superday was three thirty minute interviews with MD's one on one. Conversational in nature and relatively relaxed, it was a good vibe and the interviewers were friendly.

It was a very fair mix of 1/3 behavioral (story, why barclays, tell me about a time) 1/3 markets (deals, what's going on, news, interest rates) and 1/3 technicals (typical m&i 400 nothing more) for me. Was told "decisions will be out in two weeks, but expect them in one week-- most likely less." for all attendees.

lol literally someone has been going through and MS'ing all of my comments twice a day

Apr 25, 2019

I think it depends on your interviewers. Mine were purely behavioral. I think in general, advice is to just be prepared to answer the basics.
