    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    The first interview is a behavioral questions, they called me within a week. They let me know that they would be flying me out. I was toured around the Irving campus and introduced to several other candidates. The management came and pulled each applicant for interviews with potential managers. I interviewed with two managers whose background was in networking. I did not have much experience in networking protocols. The questions they asked were primarily applied algorithms and theory.

    Markets Rates, Quantitative Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews, two in person and one on the phone. They were mostly very nice. However their questions were not very easy to handle. Didn't hear back from them since the second onsite interview (it's been more than 2 months).

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly technical and resume based questions. Since this role is about model implementation (so I guess), C++ skills were very much emphasized. A lot tests on that, including writing codes on an editor. Detail-driven. They were very interested in digging into your projects and asked many follow-up questions.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    On Campus. Applied through school website and online at Citi as well. Interview was one round, 2 30 minute interviews with 2 people. Questions were all pretty straight forward, targeted towards seeing your fit within the company. Main question they wanted to know you knew the answer to is "what is the dodd-frank act?" The people were both very friendly, and not intimidating at all.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's campus recruiting and got an interview. Though I was a business major applying through the business school, my interviewer said he usually interviewed engineering students. The questions were all very technical. The positions described to me did not match the descriptions I had read in the job post on my university's website. I thought the interview was difficult, but a computer science or engineering major would have probably done better.
