    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took well over a month to find the right candidate... There was several rounds of interviews some in great detail, some not so much. I was given the opportunity to meet the entire Global Risk Team that I would work with on a daily basis. The rapport was very good within the team members.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Citi in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I found the job announcement for this position on an internet website. I then went to Citi's website and immediately applied. Part of the application process required an online assessment that took less than 45 minutes to complete. Upon completion, I immediately received an email indicating that I successfully qualified on their assessment. One business days later, I was contacted by a Citi recruiter, who scheduled my interview for the following day.

    When I arrived for my interview, I was impressed with the overall professionalism of the staff I encountered. There were many Citi employees also waiting to be interviewed for other positions within the company. Most had been working there for over 8 years and seemed extremely approachable, friendly, and loyal to the company. A relaxed and casual environment.

    Technology Infrastructure Summer Analyst Interview

    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.

    • I was asked several questions about the software used at Citi.   Answer Question
