    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi (Irving, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The process was very quick, I had one on-campus interview and then was called back for a second on site. It was very relaxed and the people were very friendly. They gave me a tour of the facility and explained their day to day operations. The interview onsite had 2 people in the room asking me questions. It was really more just holding a conversation with them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in December 2012.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone screening with a few qualitative questions (i.e. tell me about yourself, why do you want this job, why do you like Citi, etc.). Second interview was a full super day at headquarters, consisting of 5 back-to-back 30-minute interviews. Questions weren't too technical, but getting very similar qualitative questions over and over again was quite tiring. Overall, a good experience and not too stressful.

    The process took 6 weeks. Assessment Center included one FT-exercise (read and present three articles and describe why they are important for citi, 30 min, so be sure that you have read FT in the morning, that will help a lot), case study (choose between three investment opportunities), numerical test (just to verify the first one), two competency based interviews (held by very senior employees) and one group exercise (about results from a survey).
