    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citi (Charlotte, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very straightforward and FAST. Applied 3-ish weeks earlier online. Got a call from their corporate recruiter on a Wed. morning who was very professional and nice-- basic HR screening about my background, resume, why I applied, etc. By Wed. afternoon I was on a phone interview with the hiring manager & lead analyst with another screening-- more technical this time. Asked in- depth questions about my experiences with databases, SQL, Access, etc. Had to give examples of projects that I've completed that utilized massive amounts of data. I was called back 30 mins. later and asked to come for a final on- site interview the next day. Ended up meeting with 2 interviewers: an operations manager and a SVP. More behavioral this time around to see if I would be a good fit for their team. Extended an offer the next day. It was essentially a 48 hour process

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    Had 3 interviews - 2 department interviews and then one with someone else outside the department. Department is very small and I was under the impression there would be more people than there were in it. Interview was pretty standard, lasting about 30 minutes with each person. I don't know that the interview really provided me with a good overview of what the department did, or I might not have taken it.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I had joined the company as a contractor initially and later became an employee - hence the interview was rather easy as I had already been familiar with the work culture, my managers, peers and most of the project details. This was followed by a HR interview which was a piece of cake as it was purely a formality.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very formal, generic questions were asked. The interviewer asked me a series of questions about leadership, My education, challenging policy, outside the box thinking and so forth. They seemed more interested in a candidate who could speak in fluent buzzwords rather than giving an authentic thought.
