    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Citco (Malvern, PA).

    Interview

    I interviewed here couple of weeks ago. I felt immediately welcome and attached right from the beginning. The interview went well.. I met with Jason, Michelle and Scott and they were really amazing.
    I was optimistic. about getting a phone call with the good news but two weeks after, my agent told me they chose to proceed with another candidate. If anything, I believe the reason I wasn't hired was probably because they found an exact like for like replacement for the role. Didn't mean I wouldn't have impressed at the role.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    Thru recruiter, met HR and manager and peer. What really stood out was being in a closed office with an Human Resources manager that had serious body odor! From talking to others there after hire and speaking with again she smells horrible! It is somewhat of a good representation of being at Citco. It stinks!
