    Specialized Analytics Group Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Citibank in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were two phone interviews and then an onsite visit.

    The onsite visit was lengthy, spanning across two days. There were numerous interviews, a computer-based problem solving exercise and a presentation. Question difficulty varied highly from one person to the next. One person was very challenging and another not so. All were very professional.

    The position is mid to senior level and so requires thorough examination of the candidate. The persons with whom I met were trying very hard to constructively lead me with questions, while working to obtain the necessary information about me to make their decision.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citibank in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Have to apply online. Must have a resume to upload and attach to online application. Online app takes about an hr. It took a recruiter about 3 weeks to contact me and i had two phone interviews with a citi recruiter. Each lasting about 10min just basic personality questions. The branch manager was the next person to contact me to set up an interview time. I had 3 in person interviews before the managers made a decision.

    after they offered me the job and I accepted HR contacted me a week or so later to tell me my starting date. A couple of days after that i got a call letting me know i had 48hr to go take a drug test and the location they gave me. I also had to go up to the court house to get fingerprinted and have a copy sent to them.

    Its a really long process.. it took about a month or so to get hired but in the end it was worth it!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Citibank in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a very smooth process. I live in NYC so the entire process took around 2 weeks. There was initial phone call with the HR followed by 3 one-on-one interviews the next week. I was presented with the offer two weeks from then. The HR manager was extremely helpful and is actively looking to hire qualified candidates. Not sure if this helps but if you are looking for product manager/ project manager/ VP roles at Citi you should reach her at erinn.m.oneill@citi.com

    Interview Details

    Thhs was a behavioral based interview. In other words, the interviewers can get a pretty good idea of how you would interact on a team. If you give a specific example of how you resolved an issue, you'll be fine. Also, if you catch their eyes drifting ... reengage the audience ...
