    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first contact is with HR to schedule an interview, then probably interview twice with the managers of the hiring position and if everything goes well, lastly HR will contact you with an offer. This process could take up to a month or more.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was to explain a business case base on my experience in the past and give details of how was resolve and document it. Usually they review your resume from eduacation all the way to the current position in a very detail way.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by four members of my group, all seniors, VPs and above. When they called me to interview with the group head, i knew that most likely I'm close to getting the job. the interviews were not too difficult but the seniors can be a bit intimidating. You have to show them that you want the job and it's important to you for growth and experience.

    Interview Questions
    • the most unexpected question is "if you were hired, how long do you plan to be with our team". that basically stunned me but i was able to answer speaking about definitely seeing myself with the team for at least 5 years. The director smiled. she said "that's all i'll ask of you- a commitment of five years" and i got the offer and have been with the group for 8 yrs.   Answer Question

    Expense Management Assistant Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Citi in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in on an employee referral, did not meet with all the necessary parties, and the approvals for my position dragged on and on and on. It was a disorganized mess. The people I interviewed with didn't even know what job I was going for. Then the background check dragged on and on and on.

    It was straight forward. I gave them a range, they agreed, I accepted.

    Assistant Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for 2 rounds of extensive interviews. Strangely, HR was not involved in the process whatsoever (from what I could tell). There was no formal schedule of interviewers - that part lacked organization - but they made a strong effort to see as many candidates 1-on-1 as possible. At least 4 interviews each round. Came away with a positive impression of the people there. Work culture seemed a bit intense, but that was expected. The negative part was a lack of communication after the interviews - I eventually did hear from them but I had to make several calls to get some answers. Despite some improvements that can be made to the process, my overall perception of the group was positive.
