Internal Auditor Interview

Internal Auditor
Miami, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Citi in March 2014.

Interview Details – First I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. Pretty easy but a lot is to educate you about the position. Next round was with two managers in the audit department. Both nice guys but the interview felt high pressure and could tell the expected a lot from candidates. After the interview, I felt like they didn't learn anything about me.

The application is about 12 pages, so be prepared and go the bathroom first. Youll be called for first interview within a half hour.
