Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in October 2008.

Interview

Very behavioral-heavy. Interviewers are usually mean and will do "stress-tests" as well. Be prepared to show humility, your experiences working in teams, and why you are interested in a specific line of business. Citigroup hiring consists of an interview on campus (may be with one or two people), a superday that has tons of interviews. Be nice. Don't be mean.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Basic questions about experience, team member dynamics and working style, process expertise and if relocation is possible with out any assistance. The questions were easy but they are testing if you be able to work in their team rather then testing your knowledge because everyone will get the initial training for the job.

    There were four stages to the interview. First interview was with an Associate. Second round of interviews are with two Vice-Presidents who tackle behavioural and technical questions. Final round is with a Managing Director who focus their questions mainly on 'fit' based questions. First three interviews were on the phone and last was a VC. Interviewers are very personable and interviews became more of a structured conversation.

    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.

    Thorough. They tested my abilities in both languages english and spanish and were very specific when asking technical questions. Could not swing around the answer, they knew what they were looking for. Although very thorough, very light spirited and with no bad attitutes

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi.

    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.
