    Hired through the undergraduate internship recruitment program. Very streamlined process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citi in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    CitiGroup came to our campus in december 2010, it consists of 4 eliminative rounds in total including written, one 1:1 interview, one group interview, one telephonic interview with HR.

    44 appeared for the written

    Written: It was a bit easy. if you have good analytical skills, you can crack it easily. it consists mainly aptitude, tech, verbal questions.

    out of 44, 14 shortlisted.

    1:1 interview: 3 people came for the recruiting process- a Vice president, a Manager and a Senior Analyst.
    this will be little like checking your comfortability, analysing skills, communication etc for 10 min.

    out of 14, 6 shortlisted.

    Group/ Tech interview: this one is all about your technical details with all the three as interviewers who checked mostly in SQL, DBMS, OOPS and your area of interests. this went for around 45 min.

    out of 6, 1 shortlisted. (they had 2 more rounds for another guy to confirm that guy is good or not. but not able satisfy them i guess).

    Telephonic: This is just for formality. one HR was asking about my background details and checking whether i will be stick to that job or jumping over.

    Finally 1(I) got selected.
