    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    The interview was very standard. With your application you need to fill out an assessment. Once you completed it you had a 5 minute basic interview to see if you qualified for the position. You were told the salary and the basics you need to know. You get scheduled for an in-person interview with a hiring manager from the department that is hiring. It was again standard ,"tell me time when you..." questions.Once it is done you wait for weeks for the HR to find a spot in a training class. My experience was very disorganized. I interviewed for one position just to be told to interview for another. Overall it was really easy to get hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Citi (Gray, TN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process took less than a week. I heard about the job through word of mouth on a Thursday, and quickly applied online and took the assessment. I heard back less than 24 hours later from corporate wanting to do a quick phone interview. I talked to the guy from corporate for maybe ten minutes and he let me know that they would like to do an on-site interview, so I scheduled that for the following Monday. The lady that referred me really gave me some great interview tips for what the interview at Citi would be like. The interview itself took about 30 minutes to complete, and the man interviewing me was really nice and after all the behavioral and situational questions, told me I did a great job and that HR would be in contact with me soon. On Tuesday afternoon, HR called an extended an offer. I just went yesterday for my fingerprinting and pre-employment drug screen. My first day is August 10th. Flexible schedule and pretty good pay for a starting position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Citi (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was difficult because the Hiring Manager asked me about my current job and after explaining an unusual hierarchy, he got caught up on semantics and how my current job was set up. Instead of focusing on the skills that I bring to the table, he kept wanting to discuss and understand how my current job's business was organized.

    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 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.

    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.
