Interview

I was hired as a full time employee based on my work as a consultant. They wanted me to convert as a full time position. I was torn because this position was a Senior Vice President position and my salary was at a Director level. I was at the salary cap limit for a SVP..

Negotiation

Long and painful

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    As part of a small group I knew the hiring manager from a prior job. I met with the business head to whom my hiring manager reported to. The interview with the business head / managing director was conversational but allow each of us dig into the others experiences and objectives. There was also an HR screen which was professionally conducted.

    Negotiation

    You need to have insight into the HR banding to know the range you are working in.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with three people plus HR. All done very professionally and on-site. However, took long time for hiring manager to return phone calls related to questions post-offer/pre-hire. This is a serious financial services company and one needs to be well-rehearsed/prepared and well-dressed (for success) for every single in-person meeting. If you are being hired at a junior level, process will take less time for approvals, etc. than for a senior level role.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the most difficult work situation you ever encountered and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    • Why do you want to leaving consulting and come back to industry after being so successful?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was always taught to believe everything is negotiable and it is. I negotiated additional PTO days but not additional comp.
