    Capital Markets Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Citibank (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The super day was extremely competitive. I was interrogated on precise figures of macroeconomic data such as latest inflation, GDP, Housing start etc.
    One interviewer was really odd and kept cutting me off saying get to the point, get to the point for many of my answers which I was, so I think it was a sort of stress test. This was not experienced by other candidates in the same interview with whom I had a conversation but it is essential to know you might get one of these types of interviewer.

    Teller Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Citibank (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Well first I applied online and passed the qualification test. Two days later I received a phone call from a recruiter. She interviewed me right then and there. She then gave me an interview for the following Monday. When I went to the branch, they were late. The people who were suppose to be interviewing me wasn't even in the building! I had to wait 30 minutes. When it was time to interview me, they BARELY asked me about my work experience (all retail and banking experience so I definitely qualify). All they were worried about was that I was about to graduate college and would be having a bachelor's degree. They felt like I would have full time jobs lined up for me the moment I get out of college! I highly doubt that though in this economy. I just wanted a job outside of retail for once and Citibank seemed like it would be a great option but it seemed like I was too overqualified for them now. Penalized for my school success. I can't believe it.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the standard interview questions. They just focused on my future endeavors.
      If you were to have a full time job lined up for you in a couple of months, would you take it?
      How long are you planning on staying with Citibank?

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citibank (San Antonio, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I completed the application and skills test online. Then I received a call within 2 days and did a phone interview. I scheduled an interview the next day and did a background check through an email link. I felt good about the Job application process until the in person interview. Things didn't go well. The manager who interviewed me was unprofessional and rude. I traveled almost an hour to get to the interview and it would have been courteous if he had put his phone away in the beginning. Also, he was very snappy. Usually in interviews, managers are supposed to be professional and polite. I wonder if it would have been different if someone else had interviewed me. I haven't had such a bad experience in a while. To me that interview spoke volumes. It basically said that working for Citi would be an unpleasant experience. Edit: I got offered a job after 2 weeks, but ended up declining since I was hired somewhere else.
