I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Citi.

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

Senior Vice President Interview

Senior Vice President
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in December 2010.

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