Business Analyst
Irving, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2008.

Interview Details – The hiring manager spoke to me first with a phone interview. I was later called in by the hiring manager for a one on one session interview. I got a call a week later from HR. HR made me an offer and gave me a few days to think about the offer before making a final decision. I submitted a counter offer that was turned down. It was a take it or leave it scenario. I eventually accepted the offer. I was scheduled to take a drug test, presentation, and get on-boarding material before I started to work for the company.

Warren, NJ

The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in April 2010.

Interview Details – Bright, talented people on the team doing the interviewing. They provided thorough explanations of the business and the challenges the position would be addressing, and asked intelligent questions versus rote or gimmicky ones. Very candid about the cons of the job too, which was refreshing and appreciated.

Interview Question – Asked about international regulatory experience   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Position was for a consulting role and a full-time opportunity presented itself.

Business Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Citi in August 2011.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview was standard. It consisted of brief questions about background and what I would like to do in the future. In the first round of in person interviews we discussed my work experience and problem solving skills. The second round of interviews was surprisingly short and we talked mostly about the community service I participated in and future goals. After 2 weeks I received an offer.

Interview Question – Tell me about your experience with Habitat for Humanity.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiations were almost non existent. I told the recruiter my expected compensation which he matched. Still choosing benefits.
