    Interview Details

    I applied through postings at school career website, and got a phone interview one month later. The first round interview was pretty standard, mostly behavior ones. The second round interview was about one week later than the first one, and on site. There were two interviewers, and questions asked were a mix of past experiences (walk me through your resume etc.) and technical knowledge. There were some questions on data analysis, and would test your skills in some specific softwares.

    Summer Analyst CMO Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citibank in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Quite smooth, a lot of market based questions. Heavy on technicals but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, it was an enjoyable process and the interviewers were really nice. Series of 6 one-on-one 20 minute interviews. The whole process lasted about 2.5 hours. Be prepared to ask intelligent questions in the end and talk to a lot of people before your interview. Why CMO is probably the most important question and your answer will make or break your interview. Be genuine, well informed and know about the company and divisions + desks.

    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

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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.
