    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initially two phone interviews 30 mins each with quantitative questions in each one. Then was flown out to New York for Superday and had 8 interviews 30 mins each that day with a math test in the morning. If flying from the west coast, it's important to plan so your schedule is not messed up when you have to wake up at 6am EST for your interview. Do not make my mistake and sleep 5 hrs a night for the entire week before the interview.

    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.....

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university career. Arranged interview on campus.
    Very nice interviewer. Asked questions about projects on resume, very detailed questions.
    You have to prepare to answer every detailed question on almost all projects listed on resume.
    Then had a programming skill test. You may write algorithm in any language you familiar with.
    The programming skill test is definitely the key.
