    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I had 7 interviews, 6 1-2-1's standard 'talk me through your CV and give me examples when....' type of questions and a standard HR interview (but 1-2-1's continued after the HR interview).

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions and a few scenario based questions but if you have enough experience it wouldn't be taxing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was offered more than the number I stated but Citi were aware that I had other offers and was in the middle of other interview processes

    Human Resources Summer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied in November

    Heard back in April, and had first-round interview.

    First round: comprised by two interviews with a short break in between them. The questions were competency-based, asking me to recall specific situations where I have had to, for example, work under stress, solve a difficult problem, deal with a difficult person, how I handle teamwork etc. The interviewers were professional, but also friendly, and took time to share their personal experiences. This was particularly helpful for the final round, because they give you some great reasons to work for Citi which you can later mention.

    Final round: most challenging but rewarding recruitment procedure I have faced.
    -Time to prepare personal presentation (acquisition and merger from HR perspective)
    -Giving personal presentation
    -Two interviews with senior HRSS professionals (which were less competency-based, and more behavioural-personal. They wanted to know what motivated me, why HR, why Citi etc.)
    -Group task (Merger planning)

    Overall a challenging but fun experience, and wanted to join Citi even more after having been in extensive contact with their staff. Very professional, as well as courteous and curious personalities at the same time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and was asked to take the online assessment tests. 2 or 3 days later I was emailed letting me know I had a first round interview. They were really nice, mostly fit questions and motivation. The next stage was an on site assessment center involving 3 one on one interviews, and a banking case study in front of a panel which was reasonably technical, followed by another round of assessment tests to prove you were the test taker. Very nice and supportive interviewers, but know what the division does and what the position involves going in.
