Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Citi in May 2009.

Interview Details – Resume placed in by Employee Referral. Waited 3 weeks for HR Interview. Received Interview by Department Manager, and Technical Interview on same Day, by Project manager. 2 weeks later received Interviews by 2 First Vice President's, and one Director. Then received call from Human Resources with to come in again, and was given a Salary Agreement Letter, and a proposed start date. I accepted the Salary agreement, and sent it in a few days later, and started work about 3 weeks from the Salary agreement. I was told by my referree that they had already made the decision that they wanted me as an employee when I received the 3 other interviews, but these were just a formality at the time.

Interview Question – I was asked a few technical questions related to Testing, and using data compare tools during the technical interview. During the Manager Interview I was asked about the Investment product: Mutual Funds, and to how familiar I was with them.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, as this was my first IT Job in this field. I wish I gave it a shot, looking back, as I probably could have increased another $ 6,000 to $ 10,000, But I was happy to get a job when some of the majority of my classmates had not received job offers, and those that did were not as high in salary.
