Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Warren, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in April 2013.

Interview Details – The first round was telephonic followed by a Face to face round. It took Citi about two weeks to set up the location and time of the interview. While the position is in Warren, NJ the face to face took place in NY.

Interview Question – There was nothing difficult. The hiring manager did indicate that he is hiring for a few open roles but I did not expect them to take forever! It has been one month since my first round and I dont have an answer yet on the result! This is extremely unjust to the candidate   View Answer

Roseland, NJ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Citi in October 2009.

Interview Details – They didn't ask a single technical question until the last interview. They asked mostly for "fit" and "culture", with little emphasis on whether or not i was capable of doing the job. Their biggest mistake was to not ask for more specifics on my level of knowledge in Microsoft Excel.

Interview Question – There was no difficult question in the interview. It was all very obvious and not at all challenging. It was as if they had picked questions right out of a handbook for interviewing.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation was available
