    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    A compilation of what I've observed, including my own experience: Submit your resume online into the "black hole". HR screens qualified applicants with a telephone interview. A hiring manager can request HR to "find" your resume, so it's worth networking if you know someone on the inside and really want the job. Two interviews, usually 2 interviewers each, usually 30 minutes each, often back-to-back, but can be separated by a week or so. Dress professionally and mind your P's and Q's. My Interview was very general. They asked about my background. Very few technical questions, if any. I honestly don't recall any, so there probably weren't any. Do not be afraid to ask for clarification on a question. Be Positive. Cross your fingers and wait for an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I got a totally off the wall one; If you could be any type of animal other than a human, what would you be, and why?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Very little to negotiate. Benefits are usually inflexible. You can get a bit more in annual pay, but usually not much. Its a pretty standard package.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citi (Buffalo, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for different position. The recruiter contacted me for the positions as financial analyst. I had an interview in the same week. The interview was fine, simple and relax. No pressure. The negative point is that they gave you the feeling of being the good fit and they declined you. Citi need to be honest or don't show anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about work and education background. Questions about work situations as financial analyst. Asked questions about computer skills and knowledge of others languages.   Answer Question
