    Interview

    Initially had a phone interview with HR that was about thirty minutes, not too bad. Was called back about a week later and had interviews with three hiring managers in total that were about thirty minutes each. These were more technical and difficult. I heard back 2-3 days after that I had received an offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi (Warren, NJ) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The first round was telephonic followed by a Face to face round. It took Citi about two weeks to set up the location and time of the interview. While the position is in Warren, NJ the face to face took place in NY.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing difficult. The hiring manager did indicate that he is hiring for a few open roles but I did not expect them to take forever! It has been one month since my first round and I dont have an answer yet on the result! This is extremely unjust to the candidate   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Met with one senior manager who worked with the hiring manager from the group I was applying for who seemed disinterested in the interview process. The person was busy looking at their computer and seemingly monitoring email and IM during the process. Maybe since I was a consultant interviewing for a full time permanent position it was not taken as seriously

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was standard. It consisted of brief questions about background and what I would like to do in the future. In the first round of in person interviews we discussed my work experience and problem solving skills. The second round of interviews was surprisingly short and we talked mostly about the community service I participated in and future goals. After 2 weeks I received an offer.
