Barclays Springboard 2020

Haven't seen a thread yet for this, but wanted to get one going since things should start to pick up later this month with the process depending on where everyone is located (target, non, etc). Applied the day of the deadline and now the waiting begins haha

Last year formal invites went out in early March, on campus interviews (straight to springboard if passed) were mid-late feb at schools that got OCR

Not sure what timelines were like for people that had to do HireVues

for those of you who've already had the phone interview, was it mostly behavioural, anything technical?

i'm at a semi target, did my phone screens last week, interviewer said i should expect to hear back in the next few days. but that recruiting team was strictly my school alums so idk for you guys. anyone else who heard back and got the invitations?

Feb 24, 2020 - 6:18pm

Had the phone screen today; my interviewer told me we should hear back by early march.

Feb 28, 2020 - 2:12pm

I believe so, was told ill get one next week

Mar 2, 2020 - 6:27pm

Is the event date April. 15th-16th for everyone? I applied to the women's program and it was supposed to be April.1st-2nd, while the diversity one is 15th-16th.

Mar 11, 2020 - 3:18pm

Had a phone screen late Feb, thought it went well and it was super chill. Haven't heard anything back and when I try to login to the website it shows nothing... probably didn't get it did I?

Mar 11, 2020 - 7:12pm

Welp. I read last year they were rolling and some didn't receive until next week, was hoping for the best.

Apr 7, 2020 - 12:23pm

Has anyone had their S&T interviews already?

Does anyone know how many people participate in Springboard & how many offers are typically extended?

I felt like they went very well. Again, maybe my interviewers excel at hiding their true thoughts. It does seem like we are waitlisted.

Something about waitlisting 6 people (I believe there're 6 ppl here who interviewed last Friday and still haven't heard back) seems off to me. But then again, I'm not sure how many ppl they interviewed on Friday. I wonder what the policy is if you are an outright reject.

Apr 15, 2020 - 6:40pm

Someone said in last year's thread that they got an offer 5 days after interviews-I'm assuming that if no one (that I know of) has heard, they just haven't gone out with anything yet?

Apr 16, 2020 - 7:59pm

Not yet, I will later tomorrow though if they still haven't said anything.

My interviewer said they are waiting till everyone for the program is interviewed. They are deliberating next week and will let us know by the end of the week.

Apr 17, 2020 - 1:05pm

Is this just for S&T, the women's track, or Springboard overall? I thought they were doing interviews until the end of April.

for people waiting for decisions from last 2 superdays... was catching up with someone in my network who was somewhat active in the springboard process, they were told information would be coming to us mid-week

My friend recently interviewed on Friday; they told him 7-10 days. Does that mean he will get it mid week? I have S&T coming later on...

I feel I did ok. Interviewers weren't harsh either. And thanks! Best of luck to you as well.

Did they email you or call you for the rejection? Recently interviewed and I haven't heard back yet, so just curious.

Nope! HR said 7-10 days but someone here said mid tuesday to thursday so I am quite nervous. They have not explained their source yet.
