    I asked about the salary range that was budgeted for the position. I was then asked for my previous salary, and was actually told that I would receive no written offer unless I disclosed it. I was then offered a salary that was less than the initial range. Not a good sign.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Fast tracked to the AC from the spring week programme. The AC was quite intense with numerical test, FT exercise, case study presentation, and 2 additional interviews. The interviews were very competency based and the expected Why corporate banking? But everything was quite straight forward and there were no big surprises.

    Interview Questions
    • For me the case study presentation was the hardest - but thinking about it afterwards it was actually quite easy. Just make sure to use your time wisely and start by doing all the calculations of profits for different projects, and after that eliminate projects with a lot of risks.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied in November

    Heard back in April, and had first-round interview.

    First round: comprised by two interviews with a short break in between them. The questions were competency-based, asking me to recall specific situations where I have had to, for example, work under stress, solve a difficult problem, deal with a difficult person, how I handle teamwork etc. The interviewers were professional, but also friendly, and took time to share their personal experiences. This was particularly helpful for the final round, because they give you some great reasons to work for Citi which you can later mention.

    Final round: most challenging but rewarding recruitment procedure I have faced.
    -Time to prepare personal presentation (acquisition and merger from HR perspective)
    -Giving personal presentation
    -Two interviews with senior HRSS professionals (which were less competency-based, and more behavioural-personal. They wanted to know what motivated me, why HR, why Citi etc.)
    -Group task (Merger planning)

    Overall a challenging but fun experience, and wanted to join Citi even more after having been in extensive contact with their staff. Very professional, as well as courteous and curious personalities at the same time.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Citi in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was asked to take the online assessment tests. 2 or 3 days later I was emailed letting me know I had a first round interview. They were really nice, mostly fit questions and motivation. The next stage was an on site assessment center involving 3 one on one interviews, and a banking case study in front of a panel which was reasonably technical, followed by another round of assessment tests to prove you were the test taker. Very nice and supportive interviewers, but know what the division does and what the position involves going in.
