    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Had 2 phone interviews and 1 in-person interview. First 2 interviews were with the hiring manager and senior business analysts. In-person interview was with the Development manager. The phone interviews and in-person interview went well. However, I think they were looking to get someone who was really more technical, rather than having a good mix of both business and technical skills.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    One appointment, met with five different employees - some higher, some would be colleagues. Job description is useless as jobs there are totally fluid based on changing focus of group CFO.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi in January 2014.

    Interview

    After getting a phone call to setup an interview I came into the site. I sat with 3 managers over the course of an hour and a half to 2 hours. I met with 1 Vice President, 1 Sr Vice President, and 1 Director. The Director was a softball interview as he was the last person and assumed everything else had been covered by his 2 directs. The Vice President didn't really seem to have a good grasp on the group's responsibilities. There had been a lot of turn over (3 people on a 5 person team left) and they needed someone who was looking for an opportunity to prove him or herself. The SVP reiterated similar lines. They asked mostly basic questions anyone with a 3.0 in any college subject could answer. Then they asked extremely niche questions relating to the position. I answered honestly and with the niche questions, when I said I didn't know, they said they could train me.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the managers seemed really green and unequipped to do their jobs.

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very quick interview process from the original recruiter call to the interview was one day. They tell you what building to go to for the interview but not that there are several garages and you can end up parking on the other side of campus. Very high security, make sure you take your ID or you will not get it. Beautiful building and grounds, very bright and looks recently updated.
