    Securities Processing Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Very relaxed, a couple of accounting questions, and brain teasers. 3 different interview stages. They usually get back to you within 2 weeks and tell you if you've made it to the next stage. But I emailed my HR Representative every week. In my opinion, there's not much you can prepare for in regards to the brain teasers or personality questions. But know your basic accounting.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Citi in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    pleasant staff who put you at ease. Two interviews, one competency and one technical. Competency is fine as long as you think through the answers, technological is a bit harder. They ask things like, what do you know about citi? why do you want to work in tech? what is your favourite piece of tech? This is followed by a group activity which isnt too bad if you think quickly and try to keep the format of conversation well organised

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process of interviewing with Citi's Engineering dept. was unprofessional. The hiring manager missed our initial phone interview without any notice, and then the HR recruiter tells me to let him know if and when the manager calls by COB, assuming I was going to wait the rest of the day for the interview. We rescheduled the phone interview for the following day.

    The person interviewing me had a very deep accent and I had to ask multiple times to repeat the question. The questions were easy and not deeply technical, but in less than 24 hours of business day they decided to go "with another person," even though I know I did well in answering the questions. Seems like they already made their decision prior to my interview.
