    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citi.

    On Campus. Applied through school website and online at Citi as well. Interview was one round, 2 30 minute interviews with 2 people. Questions were all pretty straight forward, targeted towards seeing your fit within the company. Main question they wanted to know you knew the answer to is "what is the dodd-frank act?" The people were both very friendly, and not intimidating at all.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citi in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Completed first round interview, arranged through my college. I was interviewed by two employees from their Connecticut and New York locations. The interview was behavioral and they did not stick to a specific structure or rigid questioning. It felt more like a conversation than interview. It was a 30 minute interview based mostly around my resume and current events, as well as how what I do ties into Citi and Corporate Banking.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    A compilation of what I've observed, including my own experience:

    Submit your resume online into the "black hole". HR screens qualified applicants with a telephone interview. A hiring manager can request HR to "find" your resume, so it's worth networking if you know someone on the inside and really want the job. Two interviews, usually 2 interviewers each, usually 30 minutes each, often back-to-back, but can be separated by a week or so. Dress professionally and mind your P's and Q's. My Interview was very general. They asked about my background. Very few technical questions, if any. I honestly don't recall any, so there probably weren't any. Do not be afraid to ask for clarification on a question. Be Positive. Cross your fingers and wait for an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    Very little to negotiate. Benefits are usually inflexible. You can get a bit more in annual pay, but usually not much. Its a pretty standard package.
