Finance Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online since Citi doesn't recruit directly from my school. I had a phone interview at first which was a customary phone interview where I told with an HR rep. The phone interview were all behavioral questions. I then got invited to the Super Day about a week after that. It was 3 interviews, 30 mins each. I mainly got asked some behavioral questions and we went over my resume. Nothing technical but one of them did ask me about my accounting skills. The interviews really aren't that bad, just be confident and pitch yourself well. I got an offer 2 weeks after that and took it. 60K prorated salary & 2K housing stipend.

Interview Question – It's not difficult but two of the interviewers did ask me "Why Citi?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It's a summer analyst position so it's nonnegotiable

Human Resources Generalist Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – I was already working for Citi when I was referred to the hiring manager by a colleague. The hiring manager approached me and talked to me about the role. When I expressed interest in the role, I had to go through the phone screen with the recruiter as a formality -- standard questions were asked, nothing difficult. I had a formal in-person interview with the manager -- the questions that were asked were behavioral and situation in nature. After the interview I was offered the role and accepted.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult client.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate; the salary that they offered was much higher than I expected (especially for an internal transfer), so I accepted.
