The interview in Citi wasn't very difficult for me. All the team members took my interview one after another. They mostly asked about Java language specific questions, design patterns, databases unix tools. It went alright and was asked to meet the manager after few days.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2009.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citi (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)).

    Interview

    Recruitment email and invitation to face-to-face interview. In the interview I was greeted by the hiring manager plus a potential colleague. They showed me around the office as we located a meeting room. The interview was mostly technical, in order to assess how up-to-date I was with Java. I never received feedback, even after sending an email to the company's recruiter - they never responded.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly standard behavioural personality questions that arise in an interview plus questions about the Java programming language, including its newer features.   Answer Question
