    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citibank.

    Interview Details

    Sending in email directly to HR I met in career fair. The interview was scheduled a few weeks after that and initially was an informal phone call from HR if I would still be interested in joining internship program. The interview took only around 45 mins. Mostly behavioral question since I applied for marketing department (more specifically credit card department)

    Senior Vice President Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Citibank.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager and team members were professional and mostly asked good questions during the interview. The recruiter however was another story. I can understand being junior but there's no excuse for scheduling and not attending interviews. The hiring manager clearly drove the process every time he dropped the ball. Also expect long wait times before hearing back, in my case the phone and in-person interviews happened quickly but there was no response for months. I expected longer times, but this was excessive.

    Interview Questions
    • One person asked detailed data modeling questions even though there was no modeling involved in the role so most difficult, and least relevant.   Answer Question

    Trades Processor Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Citibank in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Standard Interview. No surprises, great work culture, mature attitudes were prevalent. I was a little upset with the counter offer process and was made to feel like I was "duped". Offers are valid in writing only, so I did not take a "verbal" offer over the phone seriously. You will see how I detail this experience below. Please learn from me as I wish I would have known what I learned now, previously.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Please be very careful with negotiation. I requested xx,xxx amount on my resume, phone interview and face-to-face interview. Recruiter called and gave a "offer" over the phone with the salary. I know that "offers" do not come in the form of a phone call and must be in writing, so I said "OK" to what she was offering over the phone. DO NOT THIS. The recruiter might play a game when you want to negotiate. On this phone call they will "assume" this is your "acceptance" of the offer. When I received the offer my mail/email, I countered. I received a reply, "you already said you would accept the "offer" over the phone. This is our final approved offer. .....Which is a slight of hand as an offer is not valid unless confirmed in writing.......they promptly rejected my counter flat out.

    met with 3 managers...ask alot of general fit questions, nothing too hard...the senior vp basically described the role and some of the functions the job entails...ask alot about investment and reconciliation...how trade settlement works, but overall it was easy. They didn't ask too much accounting related questions. I went through my past background and there's also fingerprinting and drug test if you get hired.

    Interview Details

    It took about 3 weeks to go through the external hiring process. They prefer internal management, but occasionally will look externally but it takes about 3 to 4 interviews, and their start pay can vary based on region and experience, so negotiate.

    Interview Questions

    I asked for more base pay due to experience, they called back and gave me a different offer but higher than their internal base for Sr. Supervisors
