    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Customer Service Representative- Credit Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call from a recruiter within 3 days. Skills test was pretty fun. I enjoy that kind of stuff. Some of it is timed. Recruiter just went down each job on my resume and asked what I did and why I left each position. Exactly the same information you provide online. At end of interview she asked when I would be able to start as training class was starting soon, she also asked of my availability. She asked what my salary requirement was, I gave her a range and she told me the position pays between $13-$14/hr. From the reviews and based on my experience level..there is no way I could do this job for that rate. I would say this position would be perfect for an entry level candidate. There were no other questions asked.

    Reasons for Declining

    Rate of pay was ridiculously low. It would seem to make sense and be more efficient, if this and other employers would post a salary along with the 3 page job descriptions they create.
