Technology Analyst Interview

Technology Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – Citi came to my university during a career fair in mid September. I handed my resume to one of the recruiters and was contacted early October to attend a webinar. After the interview process, I was given an offer a week later. Interview consists of four 30 minute 1 on 1 interviews. It was more of a personality test. The first interviewer asked about my interest in the financial business, and generic HR questions. The second interviewer went through my resume and picked at it. He picked a section and asked me to solve a problem revolved around it. The third interviewer asked me to describe a project that I did. I went over the process and he decides to pick out a specific part and test my knowledge of it. The fourth interviewer asked me to choose a project and asked why I like that project so much, and tested a bit on data structures and simple algorithms.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Citi in July 2011.

Interview Details – They called back more than 3 months after I applied online but the interview process was fast.
I had a phone interview initially about my current status, skills, availability, location preference etc .
Then I had 2 on site interviews on the same day. The first interview was technical and resume based, they asked me about the technologies I was good with and how I used it.
Second interview was more behavioral in nature, where the interviewer contrasted lots of scenarios.

The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had two back to back 45 minute phone interviews with a technology director. They asked mostly behavioral questions, although they did intertwine a few technical and "brain teasers." The first interviewer was good and really made me feel comfortable. My second interviewer was especially nice and spent a while talking about his experience in Citi and what an intern is expected to do.

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citi in November 2010.

Interview Details – Loads of behavioral questions. "Tell me about a time when....." I was able to nail the first few questions and get to know my interviewer on a personal level after he realized I was competent and had good people skills. He handed me the interview form and a pen and said "Fill it out with whatever your best answers are...I'm definitely recommending you for hire"

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when something went drastically wrong on a project you were working on. How did you react?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not a lot of room for negotiating out of college. They give you a very competitive starting salary but are not very willing to negotiate much beyond that.
