Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
Dallas, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2014.

Interview Details – I attended a career fair at my university website and applied through the Citi website. I got an email for scheduling an on campus interview for the next week. The interview was fairly laid back and conversational, and the interviewer talked about himself for most of the time.

Cashflow Modeling Associate Interview

Cashflow Modeling Associate
Buffalo, NY

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – The process of interview is pretty much what you would expect from a typical interview. However, the interviewers have interviewed so many interviewees in one day so that they got tired at the end of the day. So if you are one of the last few interviewees in the day, you may find the interviewers being tired and their voice are low. It is much more difficult to impress them given they barely have the energy to dig into you.

Interview Question – Be prepared with technical questions. They may ask you basic questions about their products. They also ask about your computer skills or programing skills if you mentioned it on your resume. Some candidates say they were asked a lot of questions about database.   Answer Question

Sales & Trading Analyst Internship Interview

Sales & Trading Analyst Internship
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in February 2014.

Interview Details – The process was actually very quick and easy, with a few phone interviews leading up to a San Francisco Super Day. 9 candidates for 4 positions. Met with almost every asset class trader first, then one on one interviews after. Very market oriented questions, you need to know what is going on in the world

Interview Question – You have a client that has been on vacation for the last 20 days. He wants to be filled in on what news he missed, how it affected markets, and how he should alter his portfolio and future trades accordingly.   Answer Question

Technology Leadership Program Associate (TLP) Interview

Technology Leadership Program Associate (TLP)

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).
