I applied online and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details – First phone interview: tell me about yourself for 1 min. Then math and computing problems. I think I had a poor line for phone interview, especially those numbers and algorithms. I was really frustrated about that.

Interview Question – Tell me some algorithms about recursion and sequence.
Game theory is about distribution and the second one beat me in addition to the t-distribution.

The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in October 2010.

Interview Details – Had a face-to-face interview on campus. Invited to their Superday interview held at their New York office. Had 8 rounds of interviews. Got questions including maths, programming, logic, finance. Tough interview. You need to learn really a lot to prepare for the interview and more importantly, you have to sell yourself and make them like you. Did not get the offer.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Citi in May 2010.

Interview Details – they responded very quickly. actually two short phone calls about background, no actual technique stuffs. then ask you to finish an online test of C++ and math. for c++ I got 32 out of 36, (which I guess failed me for), 23 out of 24 on math.

The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in November 2009.

Interview Details – Just focus everything on my resume. Nothing else. For example, they see I am a CFA level III candidate, then they ask do you know bond? what's the duration of a zero coupon 10 years bond and what's the duration if this bond has coupon. Why you want to choose this kind of job, you know, this job will be quite busy and exhausted.....
