AML Compliance Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi.

Interview

Had 3 interviews - 2 department interviews and then one with someone else outside the department. Department is very small and I was under the impression there would be more people than there were in it. Interview was pretty standard, lasting about 30 minutes with each person. I don't know that the interview really provided me with a good overview of what the department did, or I might not have taken it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    The process was through a temp agency, screening process took a while and then the interview was very procedural. Focus on attention to detail, as that is integral to the job. Management wants worker bees for this role; don't rock the boat, just meet your assigned quotas. The staffing agency generally has no idea what the role is, and some of the people were not cut out for it. Moderate excel skills needed (temp agency may give a test), but overall it just requires someone with strong attention to detail and an analytical mind.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No, the temp agency was firm.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewer seemed like he didnt want to be there. Very basic style interview with a little Anti-money laundering questions thrown in. They do a lot of hiring for contractors at one time so if you stick out a bit you will get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    After I applied I received an email stating I needed to take an online test to continue in the application process. The online test consists of listening to customer phone calls and transcribing the information correctly (account numbers, phone numbers, etc.). It wasn't very fast so the test is pretty easy and also had nothing to do with the job I applied for so I think everyone has to do it to show you know English and how to use a keyboard. It is timed and you can't quit in the middle so make sure you set an hour aside to get it done, or however long the email says it will take.

    Next, I received an email stating I passed the online test. Then another email came stating I would be called for a phone interview and I had to pick a time slot. I don't remember too much about the phone interview but I think it was just questions about my past job experience and why I think I'd be a good fit for the job so make sure you read the job description and use that to make your argument for why you should get hired stronger.

    After that I received another email from an HR person stating the last step was an in-person interview with a name, date/time, and location. I think he called me too but he did leave his contact info so I could contact him if needed.

    On your interview day, REMEMBER YOUR INTERVIEWER'S NAME. When I was waiting in the Citi lobby for my interview, another guy came in for his interview and couldn't remember his interviewer's name. Therefore, the concierge people could not contact the interviewer to tell them the guy was there. He had to run out to his car (not a short walk to the parking garage) to find it.

    Be prepared for some small talk too. The Citi complex is multiple buildings so the walk with your interviewer from the lobby to your interview area will be a few minutes.

    The in-person interview consisted of the expected interview questions and a few job specific questions. But it's not expected that you'll completely understand the job, just prove you're smart enough to make it through the training that teaches you the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe a time when I did something that made everyone else's job easier (like found a computer shortcut, created a macro, wrote a manual, etc.).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Take the offered salary or leave it ($44,000).
