    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Had one on campus, then superday at their offices. Superday consisted of three half hour long interviews, structured sort of like speed dating with all the interviewers sitting in the same room. I was interviewing for an internship in the technology division, but my interviewers kept asking me finance questions despite me telling them that I had virtually no financial knowledge. One interviewer asked me what the market cap of citibank closed at the previous day. All my interviews were extremely technical, though I talked to other men who had been interviewed and they said theirs were purely behavioral. One interviewer even asked me what it was like being a woman and studying math.

    Interview Questions
    • Some simple algo questions, but one interviewer questioned me about threading, even though i told him I had no idea what it was. he asked me "well, what do you think it is?"   Answer Question

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florence, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florence, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citibank in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application. Received a phone call from recruiter 5 days later. She asked me about my prior positions and what I did there. She explained the position and pay rate. She then set up an in person interview at Citibank for the following week.
    The in person one on one interview lasted about 30 minutes.
    She asked me various questions that related to my online assessment. They wanted me to reply in the S.T.A.R format. SITUATION. TASK. ACTION. RESULT. Some questions she asked were "Tell me about a time you had a tight deadline with a goal to meet" "Tell me about how you would handle your co-workers being upset about a new implentation in the company" There was about 7 questions like this. She also noticed two employers that I had been with less than a year and asked me what happened there.
    She then had me take a seat outside of H.R. (Which I think means a good sign you get the position)
    H.R went over the pay ($14 hr-bi-weekly), schedule (4-12's or 5-10's with mandatory Saturday), training (lasts 9 weeks). Training doesn't start for another 20 days.
    I chose to do my fingerprint FBI check that day. I was then informed I had TWO days from then to complete my drug test. They test through Labcorp and it is helpful because they had locations all over the city. It takes time for the FBI check to come back- and there's a possibility you could get fired after already starting, from what I've heard.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Citibank in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very short and brief questions, the personality questions are the key to wining this position in my opinion. Along with that you also need cash handling experience and plenty of peoples skills. Most banks are about customer service and how to deal with upset customers to keep calm vibe in each branch.
