Difficult Interview

Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst
New York, NY

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.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Citi in October 2009.

Interview Details – they move fast - my time from initial contact to offer was less than two weeks.
interviewed with 8 different people. some questions technical, others not.
focusing a lot on fit, making sure the candidate knows what he or she is getting into.
overall, not an unpleasant interview experience.
some wiggle room for negotiation.

Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst
New York, NY

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.....
