    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Citibank.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. The interview process went well. HR started from telling some brief intro about the position and started to ask about my experience. She was really nice and didn't ask difficult questions but seems like she wanted to know more about my interests and personality. After asked about 4 basic questions, she asked me the final question, which was do you have any question for me? Really basic. The interview took about 20 min. It was a great experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Citibank (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It took almost 4 weeks to schedule a 30 minutes phone interview with the hiring manager per their request. The hiring manager would cancel and rescheduled but I finally had a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. That's as far as I have gotten during the interviewing process so far. Furthermore, the hiring manager could not give me a straight answer on most of the questions I asked. For example, I asked what time frame would it take for them to get back with me after the phone interview? The hiring manager didn't know how long it would take for them to get back with me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Citibank.

    Interview

    Contacted by a corporate recruiter and citi human resources to schedule an in person interview with the VP of Fairlanding cards and senior manager for cards compliance.

    I was interviewed by a fair lending VP with a background of law. The individual appeared to have no human resources or interview experience this was a one on one interview therefore the inherent risk of equal employment opportunities are very high and questions ask were unfit and individual disclosed non-client and attorney privileged info towards me.

    The interview questions were all scenarios based on what if you would do or what do you recommend a particular department to do when given a specific problem example would be do you find a fair lending issue or concern if in business would like to open up a particular card product to a demographic group based

    on income and why.

    In addition the interviewer was highly interested in previous senior managers I have worked with on previous engagement in my Pinyan name dropping is not a professional type of advice to give therefore I did not want to disclose this information as a result the individual was frustrated

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citibank.

    Interview

    Two 30-minute interviews. Both were mostly behavioral. Lot of questions about past experiences (e.g. challenges that required confidence, challenges you overcame and how). The first person I interviewed with was nice, but didn't try to make it a casual and comfortable experience, however the second person I met with aimed to do that.
