    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citi (Irving, TX) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Came to campus for first round interviews, then were invited back for second rounds at the office. There was a panel of managing directors and roughly 10 other candidates. It was structured similar to speed dating - bell rings, everyone stands, and moves to speak with the next director.

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Senior Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Senior management took the time to get to know me, and sell me the role. However, the culture and care they displayed in the interview process was not the actual culture of the organization. As a woman, the woman friendly environment was misrepresented in the interview process...the only 2 senior leaders in the division were the 2 of the 5 senior management I met (Director/Managing Director Level). The culture in actuality was one of male cave like thinking with war like tendencies of ego and chest banging, and no respect was displayed generally for women. The interview process represented a smart and intelligent process, however, the chaotic actuality once I was in the environment reflected smart and intelligent people with out any leadership or managerial abilities. To receive an offer, everyone had to unanimously like you.

    Interview Questions

    • The traditional questions: 1. Review your background with the angle of why you're the most qualified for the job, why do you want this job, and why should they pick you 2. Approach to relationship management and difficult situations 3. Testing on concepts of your background with drill down to specific areas of interest   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation....there's a formula. For me, they took my current base salary and gave me a 15K increase to minimally satisfy me taking the offer, with the promise of more within 6 months, which never occurred. They also misrepresent how difficult any negotiation or something more would be (which is not true as I then worked there and learned the truth)
