    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by a recruiter, was interviewed by her initially, then had a phone interview with two people, then had a video conference interview with three people. The whole process went quite smoothly and they were very flexible and willing to work around the schedule of the position I held at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • None really, just questions about my technical background (somewhat technical role), no cases   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I negotiated a bit and it worked, I had a few other recruiters coming after me so I had leverage

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • It's not difficult but two of the interviewers did ask me "Why Citi?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It's a summer analyst position so it's nonnegotiable

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone call to initially gauge interest in the position, followed by another phone interview with one of the Relationship Managers. The interview process then moved on to a panel discussion in which I met with a variety of current employees to discuss my fit for the role.
