Technology Leadership Program Associate (TLP) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Citi

Interview Details – Applied through my career center and was asked to interview a week later. The interview was somewhat different for me, given that I come from a business (non-technical) background. The interviewers were pleasant but not overly enthusiastic and the process very much felt like going through the motions. They seem to be looking for a certain type of person to hire (I already had project management experience, but they didn't seem all that interested).

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – This hiring was for pune location and interview happened in Bangalore.
I was contacted through a consulting agency, and when i went to the interview location at scheduled time, i was told that it was first come first. I had to wait for 2 hours and then in interview, Interviewer was not even listening. He was more worried about not having lunch at 2 PM. And his behavior was so rude as if he just wanted to get rid of the process.
Questions asked:
Tell me about executor framework.
Difference in Future and Callable.
Singleton and Decorator pattern.
How two systems communicate each other?
I answered all of them but considering his behavior I left the venue after first round.
Will never ever apply for citi bank in my life.

Latin American Markets Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – Applied online in August through their website. Didn't hear anything and figured out that my application was in the corporate black hole. Finally got an email in October saying that I was selected for a first round video interview. They asked some basic Excel questions and then the video portion started - all basic fit questions, but incredibly awkward because their was no interviewer to establish rapport with. Never received an email telling me how my interview went and since position starts in a few weeks, assumed I was rejected.

Interview Question – What are these functions used for in Excel - Pivot tables, VLOOKUP, freeze frames?   Answer Question
