    Interview

    Interviews are completely form driven. All open ended questions such as "Tell me about a time when you < >. Everyone has the same questions to answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you didn't get along with a co-worker, what caused it, what did you do about it and what was the end result.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered, I pointed out I had more experience, they came up a miniscule amount. HR is extremely limited in what they can offer. It's either this or that. There's no real negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    Citigroup uses behavior-based interviewing, through which you are asked to describe a situation, the task, the actions you took and the outcomes. The goal is to get more than a hypothetical response from the applicant by asking for examples of how an applicant actually handled, managed or worked through a specific situation or task. This gives the hiring manager a lot more detail about the individual and gives more information to base decisions upon, particularly when comparing situations to other applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to give specific examples of situations you handled well, and try to anticipate, based on the job description, what questions they will ask of you. For example, in a leadership position, you may be asked to describe a time when you had to counsel a difficult employee through a difficult situation. Be prepared to give a specific situation, including the situation, the task or deficiency being addressed, the actions you took to correct it and what the outcome was.   Answer Question

The overall interview experience were mainly situation questions and seeing how you will fit in with the team. They asked questions such as background, what would you do if you are dealing with an uncooperative person and more. Overall the experience wasn't bad
