    Interview

    Obtained the interview through campus recruiting. First round was straightforward with basic questions on garbage collection, polymorphism etc. A few riddles as well. The final round (second round, actually) included attending the head office, writing a 45 min technical test and 2 interviews with hiring managers (one tech, one attributes).

    Interview Questions

    • The tech test is long-ish but not too difficult. Some tricky tech questions in the interview though.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in January 2008.

    Interview

    The interview day gave me a rather positive impression towards Citi. In the morning, there are maths and logic tests followed by 3 one-to-one interviews with managers. The tests are about 20 minutes each and relatively straight forward. My interviewers were quite friendly as well and 2/3 of them felt more like conversations; conversations about my past experience, what I would do in certain scenarios and a few questions testing my technical expertise. The interviews did not have much of the usual pointless HR questions you might get asked, such as "why do you want to work with us?" or "have you used technology?", which seemed like the only thing that Goldman Sachs was interested in. During lunch, you have a chance to speak to a few recent recruits and also given a project proposal to read. The tasks during the afternoon are based on this. First, you need to submit an essay about this project and also prepare some presentation material such as slides. Once this has been completed, you present the project to a manager and later you are grouped with a few other applicants to discuss the feasibility of the project and also try to improve the design. This concludes the interview day.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a financial question which I was asked, I forget the question, but it was about Citi and the current financial crisis.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through college and had three rounds of interview. 1. First round (on-campus): 30 mins round with questions all about my resume and projects. A lot of questions about OOP and data structures. 2. Second round(on-site super day): Three interviews back to back in one room while other candidates were also giving interviews.Two of them going over resume and picking projects and discussing question around it. Some OOP and SQL questions too, and third interviewer with over typical HR questions about strengths ,Weakness, etc. After three interviews, we are given a test to solve in 1 hour. The test had four parts: Part I : Java coding Nothing too hard, go over Data Structures and OOP. Questions like: a. Merging two sorted list b. Reversing array elements c. Palindrome d. Difference between array and linked list e. some BST manipulations (finding element, Printing in some order) Part II : Brain Teaser Three brain teasers a. Fill 4 gallons of water with a 5 gallon and 3 gallon jugs and unlimited supply of water. b. Probability question : You have a score a basket to win the game. First choice, 1 shot, and has to make it one shoot. Second choice, 3 shots, any 2 needs to go in to win.Which is more profitable. Part III: SQL Basic SQL questions like joining tables and printing stuff. Given a table with person Stock Purchases and a table with all Stock transaction, we were asked to print table with person stock info and all transaction. Something like that, again nothing too hard. Part IV: Finance questions like stocks , bonds, Risk, etc. The Test is very lengthy, and they advised us to focus on our strengths and finish that section before moving onto another section. Everyone I talked to were not able to finish the entire test. Third Round Phone interview with a manager, again went over resume & projects, and some basic OOP concepts and one problem solving-brain teaser.
