Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

Interview

Involved 2 rounds. More conversational than anything else. Interviewers ended up answering a lot of questions about the group and work. A few simple questions on applicant's background and interest. No tough or abstract questions. Interviewers all very friendly.

    Interview

    I applied through a university program. Received an email weeks later notifying me that I had a phone interview. Phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes. I messed up one question and didn't move to the next round, but the interview overall was pretty easy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First part of the interview process was a 30 minute phone call with a developer. He asked how familiar I was with C#, went over my resume, and asked a few SQL questions. Then I got an invitation to the Houston Super Day Interviews, where each candidate had to go through 3 back-to-back interviews. There were 6 interviewers in the same room and the recruiter would let the candidates know which interviewer to talk to next. Two of these interviews were technical and one was behavioral. The technical interviews went over SQL, OOP, and the projects listed on the resume. The behavioral interview was just like any other. After the interviews, we took a timed test that went over various topics in CS. The proctor stressed that they don't expect us to finish the entire exam. The exam had Java, C#, algorithms, front-end, and multithreading questions.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    One in person interview at school. One on site super day with 3 separate interviews. Very straightforward. Mostly behavioral with one technical interview revolving around comparing financial statements. They were very slow in scheduling and even slower in reimbursement. Overall, my conversations throughout the process were brief but straightforward. A lot of nice work people there, which was cool, but many are too busy to give you the time of day.

    Interview

    Expected to have long and intense interview with many executives. Only few questions are identical (such as tell me about yourself), most of them ask different questions that involves work experience, behavioral, technical and brain teaser….it really depends on how many of them are interviewing you. HINT: you probably know a lot about banking and finance if you are business student, but make sure you review the definition of all basic finance and accounting term, memorize them if you can.
