Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citi.

Interview Details

Talked to them at a career fair and interviewed the next day. They were very friendly and the interview was rather relaxed. I was surprised they wanted me to interview as I was not well trained in the field they were hiring in, Information Security, but they were insistent that I come anyways.

    I have given a test for Citi group, their package is 7.5lpa(CTC). The test has no coding questions but contains a lot of reasoning, verbal, aptitude. Please do some practise on the aptitude questions. Some of my friends told me that in the next rounds of interview they asked some data warehousing related stuff(SQL)

    The interview in this company looks full of Nepotism. Regardless your skill, the interviewer would consider his side person. No wonder Citi is down and has very poor Java website

    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Citi in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Took a while for the HR rep to set up an interview. Once this was done, I took a tour of the facility and was interviewed 1-on-1 by 4 different supervisors. The questions were both behavioral and technical. Behavioral was no big deal; same as usual. Technical were quite difficult. There were many questions in regards to my skill level in regards to programming languages. In addition, there were quite a few brain-teasers / logical questions. I didn't do so hot in the technical part, and was not hired. I understood this and was not hurt, just motivated to prepare more for my next interview.

    Overall, positive yet difficult experience.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Citi in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    This was a phone interview. The interviewer was the hiring manager and was asking mostly general soft skills questions, such as:
    - What's your greatest strength
    - What's your greatest weakness
    - Describe a situation where you had to deal with a conflict on the team
    - Other behavioral questions
    Almost no technical questions, mostly in the form of "do you know technology X"?
    A few days after the interview he emailed saying that the position was canceled. And there it was.
