    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
