Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (Warren, NJ) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Bright, talented people on the team doing the interviewing. They provided thorough explanations of the business and the challenges the position would be addressing, and asked intelligent questions versus rote or gimmicky ones. Very candid about the cons of the job too, which was refreshing and appreciated.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Went in to interview with 4 different senior level managers, at 4 different times over the course of roughly 3 months. Felt that I exceeded expectations on each interview, however I was not given an offer as the company used an internal hire to fill the available BA position.

    Interview

    We ask specific questions to find out if someone is actually interested in Operations, or just wants to get a "foot in the door" of investment banking and will try to jump to front office in a year. Why would we hire someone like that? If this is your plan, be prepared to hide

    • Depending on your organization, you'll also be able to drive process change; front office is usually occupied with the sales/trading function, as they should be, leaving IT to develop and drive their change. Operations is a cost center, so we drive our own change to increase   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Irving, TX) in March 2008.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Completed application early in the year, very slow recruitment process consisted of two online tests, one phone interview and then a two final in house back to back interviews. When brought into office was seated in room with other applicants. They were all very anti social and created an awkward atmosphere, not a competitive one. Brought into interview with department manager and then another interview after with another member of the department.
