Interview Details

Hiring process is similar to other fortune 500 firms. Also helps to network and know people within the firm. Interview process was ok. It was not what I expected as we hardly discussed relevant experience. Interview consisted of sports, strengths and weaknesses. I expect to hear from the interviewer soon.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Citi in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and through a referral who also received my application. Called back about a week later for a phone call with a VP and to schedule an interview. The interview was straight forward, the usual tell me about yourself...strengths/weaknesses hardly any technical questions which was a little odd. Overall, the interviewers felt aloof and disconnected to reality, and I didn't leave with a positive impression of employees and the Amherst offices. Got a call another week later saying they would like to hire me. Went over compensation packages and declined almost immediately.

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

    Interview Details

    3 separate 1:1 interviews with managing directors of the company. One was asking about leadership competences, second one more about technical skills and the last one primarily was focusing on personality.
    Be prepared to give specific examples and do not over-complicate.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Campus interview, which was 2:1; then a day of interviews in NYC with various members of the group at all different levels. Most of the questions were behavioral - asked about past work experiences, how work is relevant to the job, etc. I was asked a couple of basic finance 101 questions, but nothing too severe. Overall a pretty relaxed interview process

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had two rounds of interviews. The first round was on campus with a Current Associate. The second round was a back to back series of interviews in NY. There I interviewed with current associates, HR representatives and senior managers.
    I do not recall specific interview questions but all the interviews were behavioral. There was also a small case about current challenges for the business.
