    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Very relaxed, a couple of accounting questions, and brain teasers. 3 different interview stages. They usually get back to you within 2 weeks and tell you if you've made it to the next stage. But I emailed my HR Representative every week. In my opinion, there's not much you can prepare for in regards to the brain teasers or personality questions. But know your basic accounting.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    First a phone interview and then a superday. Superday was 5 20-minute interviews with 4 people interviewing in the same room at the same time. The interviews were short so they asked the basic questions regarding market outlook, stock pitch, and why research was a good fit. Pretty straightforward as any other Equity Research interview process.
