Risk Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

Neutral Experience

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in March 2012.

Interview

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.

    Interview process was pretty straightforward, all behavioral questions. They interviewed 12 people that day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citi in January 2011.

    Interview

    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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citi in March 2010.

    Interview

    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   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This organization expects and respects negotiation (especially at the mid-level, which this position was). Be reasonable, respectful, and firm, and ask for what you want.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Citi in April 2010.

    Interview

    I sent resume to recruiter and was called immediately as the hiring manager happened to be in the UK that week. Went for interview 8am the following morning. Manager was nice, interview mainly general, how I would fit into the world wide team. (i would be the only member in the UK and I would work with the team over the phone). I was not a complete match with the job spec. The recruiter went quiet for a month and then gave feedback that I wasn't a cultural fit.

    Interview Questions

    • This was my first interview for 25 years. I don't think that there were difficult questions, just that I didn't sell my skills correctly.   Answer Question
