I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – Jobs posted on Citi website. Apply for postings. Depending on the need or if you know someone, it may be weeks before HR calls you if both they and the hiring manager would like you to be interviewed. Depening on department, interviews could involve multiple people or multiple visits. It may take weeks after the interview to hear back from HR--even if you send follow up emails. After an offer is excepted, it takes a few more weeks to get pre-employment work done and then another few weeks to get all system access that is required.

Interview Question – What do you hope to gain from Citi if you were to be offered a position?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It took some time to negotiate and it has to go through a few levels of management as it is budget-related. Unless you have valid reasons to request an increase it will be denied. THey usually only counter offer about $2K more than original with reason.

I applied online and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – Applied online and contacted by HR via email. This was followed by a phone interview with HR and two rounds of interviews with various Directors and Vice Presidents. The process took almost 7 weeks, but was delayed due to external circumstances.

Overall the interviews were standard items: walkthrough of resume, behavioral questions, and some technical questions. There were some additional questions on my fit with the team because I did not have prior experience in the financial services industry.

Interview Question – Why would we hire you, someone with no prior experience in financial services, over another candidate with experience in financial services?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Citi in June 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online for an IT position, then was called by recruiter to set up phone interview. Phone interview lasted 30 minutes and was detailed. Next was an interview with hiring manager. From initial contact to 1:1 interview was span of 3 weeks. If you make it past the hiring manager interview (1 hour), you will have at least 2 more interviews with team members and then the head of the department.
