Helpful (1)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA).
Online app, assessment, phone interview, branch interview. Referrals mean nothing. Four weeks of my life stolen even after being told by the manager "I can get you in." I passed everything, but when I went to the branch, I wasn't treated fairly. The candidate before me batted her eyes at the manager the whole time, and left with a seductive vibe to her farewell. Unbelievable.
- Typical questions like "describe a time." Although it's common, I still don't see how "see yourself in 5 years" is relevant considering the fact you're applying for a job. Ridiculous. 2 Answers

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA) in August 2012.
A little bit different. I went to the career night first, which is the open-door interview for first round. And then finish the online assessment, and the second round interview.

I applied online. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA).
Applied online and received an email to schedule a time with a recruiter. The recruiter asked basic questions about my resume, the normal why citibank and told me the branch manger would contact me within a week or two. Sadly, no one contacted me.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA) in March 2012.
Basically after the online application you go through the recruiter process. But this was my third interview with citi so I called my local recruiter since i had her number from the previous interview and left her a message about submitting my app for the branch I applied too. Two days later I get a call from the branch manager and we set up a interview date. On the interview day she made me wait 20 minutes because she was dealing with a customer and her staff after that. She asks what I'm taking in college and then a set of general questions like "a time when I have abruptly been asked to do something and how i reacted about doing it." Other questions were "where do i see myself in five years, being the most satisfied and dissatisfied with my previous jobs, going about what i did on a particular slow day at work, and solving a problem for a customer." I'm probably missing some more but i'll add it in if i remember. I asked a question about the most challenging aspect of the position and she rambled on about it and went off topic too about citi being a great company and her previous jobs-of course I'm sitting there and agreeing about citi's great products and company culture. I liked that she said she doesn't stress tellers on sales because after a while it irritates customers and really wants tellers to concentrate on providing the service-sincere thank yous and referring customers by name. Just be really customer service orientated, show your enthusiasm for their products-0% credit cards etc. the company culture and you'll do fine. Anyway I don't think I'll be getting a call back because she said my classes will conflict with her scheduling as she needs someone available 6 days a week and went on about trying other banks who can really work with schooling using her daughter as an example. Oh well, I tried.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA) in March 2009.
It started with application online that included a personality test. After I was informed that I passed the online exam my application was submitted. After about a week of submitting my application I was called by the branch manager who offered a time to interview. I was interviewed by the three managers who asked me about previous work experiences and how my experiences might translate into retail banking. I finished the interview and was contacted about three days later with an offer.

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Citibank (San Francisco, CA) in May 2008.
I was hired out of my MBA program for a summer IT internship. I was top pick of the day for the oncampus interview, and while I hadn't planned to work for a bank, I was so positively impressed with the follow-up on-site interview that I accepted the offer.
- What was your biggest challenge on your last job, and how did you address it? Answer Question
I didn't negotiate the summer internship salary, but a senior VP met with me one-on-one and mentored me regarding how to ask for a higher salary than I would have otherwise
