Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
Tampa, FL

The process took 3 days - interviewed at Citi in March 2011.

Interview Details – Very quick interview process from the original recruiter call to the interview was one day.
They tell you what building to go to for the interview but not that there are several garages and you can end up parking on the other side of campus. Very high security, make sure you take your ID or you will not get it. Beautiful building and grounds, very bright and looks recently updated.

Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
Jacksonville, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in November 2009.

Interview Details – The interview consisted mainly of the hiring manager describing the job in great detail. I then went over my work experience. There were a few situational questions, such as, how you would handle adversity and gaining a consensus from multiple people. I thought the interview went very well. Unfortunately, communication from HR was non-existent. I attempted to follow up with the HR recruiter but no calls were returned. Several months later, I received an email that thanked me for my time.

Interview Question – Describe a time where you disagreed with a decision made by management.   Answer Question
