    Interview

    Did not proceed with actual interview due to Citi's inflexibility in interviewing/hiring process length.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    All the basic banking interview questions (valuation, walk me through your resume, etc). Spent a lot of time going through my background. Overall, not very challenging. I think others might have had different questions.

    Interview Questions

    • There really were no difficult or unexpected questions. I had already been in the process elsewhere so I knew what to expect.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    Very quick process, 3 stages for the summer internship, the same for full time. Good to know many languages - big selling point for Citi. They tend to select people from top universities, love Oxbridge, LSE, Science Po, etc. Read FT before the interview, they like hearing about the deals that Citi did recently

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was part behavioral, and then part technical. Fairly typical of an entry level investment banking interview. The first round phone screen (which was mostly behavioral), 2nd round in-person superday. After the superday, they called fairly quickly with the offer. The interview in-person was a 1x1, but I heard sometimes it's 2x1 or more. Overall a fair, efficient, and easy process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds, 12-14 Interviews, 2nd round included a Case Study (common business sense, no valuation), 3rd round was exclusively with senior bankers (VP, MD and Head of IB)

    Interviews lastet between 30 and 60 Minutes
    Case Study lasted 2 hours plus 15 minutes discussion (no formal presentation)

    Organisation was pretty smooth with feedback after the individual rounds coming in 1-3 days after and the final offer 3-5 days after the final round

    All travel cost (flights, taxis, ect.) completely reimbursed

    Interview Questions

    • In more than 10 interviews literally every question has been asked. More frequently: "Why Citi"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiaton - take it or leave it.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citi in April 2011.

    Interview

    A position was posted for an experienced IB analyst and I had the pre-requisite experience. It was a quick process given that I had been in contact with this group from my days interviewing in undergrad. Small team that made a quick decision.
