    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (Goregaon (India)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It was a face to face interview after telephonic round with HR team. I went for an interview without any preparation and it cost me. HR team just asked basic questions on current employment, total years of experience, CTC etc..and then they schedule for 1:1 interview. One should prepare for an interview and then go for the same. otherwise it just waste of time and money.
