Business Analyst
Warren, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in April 2013.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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   View Answer

Business Analyst
Irving, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2008.

Interview Details – The hiring manager spoke to me first with a phone interview. I was later called in by the hiring manager for a one on one session interview. I got a call a week later from HR. HR made me an offer and gave me a few days to think about the offer before making a final decision. I submitted a counter offer that was turned down. It was a take it or leave it scenario. I eventually accepted the offer. I was scheduled to take a drug test, presentation, and get on-boarding material before I started to work for the company.

Interview Question – What was your desired pay?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – HR rep did not accept counter offers.....was a take it or leave it scenario
