Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in March 2012.

Interview Details

Applied online, then got a phone call from the hiring manager directly. Just briefly talked about my background and what they are doing in their team. After one month, I was invited to an onsite interview. Was asked a lot of questions about data analysis and statistical modeling. Got a rejection three days after the onsite.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I spent about a day at Citi to talk to different people. The interviews went pretty well. They did not ask me a lot of questions regarding programming and code. Instead, there are many questions about my past projects. I did some research on Citi before the interview, which turned out to be very helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were three rounds of interviews for this position; the first with a recruiter, the second with the hiring manager (both via phone), and the final round consisted of six hours of 1:1 interviews on site. The questions were almost all standard behavioral interview questions, and personality match was paramount. The organization I interviewed with was a former GE shop, but the personalities were generally very laid-back and friendly. The office was casual, with everyone in jeans.

    Interview Questions
    • As a follow-up question to "describe how you handled a challenging situation with a client", they asked what I would have done differently next time   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
