I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Citi in August 2013.

Interview Details

Four 20-minute one-on-one interviews, followed by a 1 hour group exercise. The one-on-one interviews were very technical, while the group exercise was aimed towards seeing how you work within a team using softer skills.

    Met recruiter at career fair and applied through colleges career services website. Recruiter called me informing me to apply online.

    The overall experience was very good. At the start only CV had to be submitted on-line and after closing date received an e-mail inviting me to the assessment centre. Had an option to choose between couple of days plus morning or afternoon session. All people I've met that day were lovely and tried to get everybody to relax and do our best.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty generic. Two 1:1 interviews for the first round. Both interviewers had me walk them through my resume, and occasionally stopped me to ask for specifics of certain aspects of some jobs. They also asked about my aspirations in Operations

    I interviewed through college or university - 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 Questions
    • 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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on my University's career services website and was invited for an interview. I interviewed with a recruiter on campus. After that, I was invited on site for 2 more interviews on. Each interview was about half an hour long. The recruiter called me back the following Monday and offered me the position. She also went into a little detail about who I'd be working with, when I would start, and compensation.

    Since it was an entry level position, there wasn't any negotiation with compensation. If you're considering about the position, don't! Accept the offer! This job is a great entry level position and will definitely help get your places.
