Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – 2 rounds, 1 hour interviews. In each hour long interview, you meet with two managing directors. Depending on which interviewer you get, the questions can range from easy to somewhat difficult.

Interview Question – The first interviewer asked all at once "Tell me about yourself. Why Citi? Why Operations?". When I answered all three (I thought I answered it well and eloquently), he threw me a curve ball and asked yes but "What REALLY is operations?". Operations is not easy to define so read up on your stuff.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because I thought the salary was fair.
