Interview Details – Hired through the undergraduate internship recruitment program. Very streamlined process. Online application followed by numerical and verbal online tests (SHL) Two rounds with initial interview and then further interviews and case studies.

Very Easy Interview

Analyst Interview

Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Citi in October 2010.

Interview Details – Fairly standard bulge bracket investment banking interview. Technical questions were significantly easier than most banks - focusing on very basic things like "What is a DCF" or "How would you value a company" without digging into the details. Seemed like there was a huge emphasis on "Why Citi".

Be prepared to understand why you want the job and be able to express how much you want it. Citi seems to be focused more on people and not preparation (i.e. "fit" questions and not technical questions), so it's significantly easier than most interviews so long as you have a good narrative.

Interview Question – What separates Citi from other bulge bracket investment banks?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Not a top tier BB bank, and their business seems to be in lux. Perhaps if their outlook improves it might be a good place to start.
