    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi (Chicago, IL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with VP at the local office followed by an onsite interview with three people - 30 minutes each back-to-back. The phone screen was interesting, the interviewer was very aggressive in his explanation of the company - gave a good look into culture - seems like one of domination. The onsite interviews were not hard and went through fast. The HR, however, was unprofessional and did not follow up within the promised deadline.
