Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Citi in May 2009.

Interview Details – Resume placed in by Employee Referral. Waited 3 weeks for HR Interview. Received Interview by Department Manager, and Technical Interview on same Day, by Project manager. 2 weeks later received Interviews by 2 First Vice President's, and one Director. Then received call from Human Resources with to come in again, and was given a Salary Agreement Letter, and a proposed start date. I accepted the Salary agreement, and sent it in a few days later, and started work about 3 weeks from the Salary agreement. I was told by my referree that they had already made the decision that they wanted me as an employee when I received the 3 other interviews, but these were just a formality at the time.

Interview Question – I was asked a few technical questions related to Testing, and using data compare tools during the technical interview. During the Manager Interview I was asked about the Investment product: Mutual Funds, and to how familiar I was with them.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, as this was my first IT Job in this field. I wish I gave it a shot, looking back, as I probably could have increased another $ 6,000 to $ 10,000, But I was happy to get a job when some of the majority of my classmates had not received job offers, and those that did were not as high in salary.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Citi in February 2008.

Interview Details – After I applied through online, within 15 days I got call from HR person. Had a basic interview with HR. Then HR scheduled interview with two managers as a phone interview. In phone interview they had asked various technical questions. Later I got call from HR for face to face interview with manager. After that got confirmation within week to accept the job. The interview process was so smooth and not much time consuming.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2012.

Interview Details – Got phone interview first, asked about past projects, then data structure and algorithm questions. After clearing it, got on site interview, 3 engineers. Mostly Java questions and puzzles and algorithm questions. After that, MD called for final interview, still algorithm. Didn't do well since he speaks too fast...

Interview Question – Please try to be as detailed as possible regarding the technical question, business case, etc.   Answer Question
