    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

    I had two different experience, one was no negotiation, and the second one I was able to negotiate for a better salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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
