    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.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took more than 3 months and did not even provide full closure at the end. The recruiter was a very poor communicator and could not get interviews with the relevant people lined up in a timely manner. He misconstrued information and failed to show any professional urgency. The interviews themselves had to be postponed and rescheduled on three occasions, with no or very little notice. After successfully interviewing with all stakeholders an in-person meet and greet was arranged where I had to fund my own trip to Delaware and take a day off work. I was informed a day later that I was 'the candidate of choice' and that Citi would be putting an offer together. two days later I received a very basic email simply stating 'we cannot move forward at this time due to your required compensation and relocation'. When I called to discuss this, the recruiter explained that my salary requirements were out of their range - this despite us agreeing on a ball park figure at the very start of the process - and that I would need an international relocation - this despite the position being in Delaware and me being based in Washington DC and not having even asked for relocation.

    The process was unnecessarily long and arduous, poorly organized and even after successfully navigating the interview process they could not explain at all why they would not take the next step. They have been unprofessional, disrespectful and a waste of time and effort in every way.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Generally good interviewers, fair and painted no illusions of the role. And the questions were relevant to experience and ability and not trying to catch out or prove their experiences.

    Interview Questions
    • Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? A bit too long term a question for a basic BA role.   Answer Question
