    Average Interview

    Interview

    It was a sham-- they already had an internal person they wanted and were just going through the motions because they needed to show they vetted lots of people. Citi has an internal mobility "process" that is a joke-- its a policy on paper-- they really don't care about the integrity of the process or finding the best person for the role (particularly true for female candidates)

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    The interview questions themselves were fairly typical. Having had experience that was congruent with the job I didn't have very much trouble answering the questions. The interviewer was extremely kind, extremely patient and well spoken. I was nervous but she didn't mind at all to repeat a question or two. The interview was done completely over the phone.

    I went to the career fair, was called for an interview at school, and went to the company for super day. It wasn't that hard. Just study data structures, big O, and study over your resume. They like to ask about your projects.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi (Bronx, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I've applied online and received a call from HR the following day in the afternoon and they've set a date for a interview later the following week. I've met with 4 different other branch managers throughout the Bronx at one location, Fordham location. Three of the interviews were fairly easy. The last interview, which was with the manager from the Fordham branch, was pretty nerve wrecking. He asked me tons of questions based off my job experiences that were listed on my resume. He went through each and every bullet point. There was a lot of other candidates who were there and had to be interviewed by each manager, the wait was the longest ever. I was there from 3:30pm to 6:00pm

    You will have a phone interview only, no face to face interview. It consists of the standard set of questions that most corporate opening use. They do not tell you that they are using the STAR method, but this is what they are looking for. The questions include
    -Tell me about a time when you had to work with an irate customer.
    -Tell me about a time when you had to work with a customer who had unrealistic expectations.
