Fixed Income Middle Office Analyst Interview

Fixed Income Middle Office Analyst
Buffalo, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citibank in May 2014.

Interview Details – The Hiring process is very organized towards what is on your resume and what you were looking to make. Not sure if it was due to the fact that it was an entry level position, or if they handle all interviews that way? They also were very focused on my previous experience, and why I chose to leave my previous field of business for this new field.

Interview Question – After just about 5 minutes into the interview they jumped right to how much I would like to make at the position.   View Answer

Teller Interview

Chicago, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Citibank in May 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for this position June 2011 and I was called for a phone interview July 2011, I received no call back or any information on how the interview went. I then received another phone call April 2012 but I was currently involved with other things in life and asked the recruiter to call back in a few weeks, the recruiter called me may of 2012 I did another phone interview with the recruiter, he set me up with an interview with the asst. branch manager I interviewed with her and the branch manager the same day and about two weeks later I received a job offer. Once you receive the job offer you submit to drug testing and background test. It is possible to start working and lose your job due to something in your background, I've seen that happen. Training is a 6week process and it's not on location. The setup is like a a classroom and it's referred to as Univerciti.
If you do go on an interview and you don't receive a job offer if the recruiter feels you are a good fit at other locations you will have the other choice to interview with different locations. I know plenty of people who weren't hired until they interviewed with a third or fourth location.

Interview Question – The questions are all standard interview questions. If you go to Citibank's website there is tab to help you with your interview, it lists different pointers on preparing for the interview and questions you may be asked. My manager asked the questions from this list.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation I was offered a pay of 3dollars more than I made I Chase bank, which is a dollar more than a teller normal starting pay. So your pay is based on experience. The benefits are awesome.
