    Interview

    You have to choose your convenient

    programming language C,C++,Java.

    My suggestion is to choose C++.You may

    choose C or Java if you feel them better.

    This round had 4 sections

    i)Computer Programming – 15 MCQ questions

    containing DS, Algorithms.

    ii)Logical Ability – 16 MCQ

    iii)Quantitative Ability – 14 MCQ

    All the above three sections was about 15 mins

    only. So time management is the key. Moreover it

    was an adaptive test. (i.e.)We can’t go back or

    navigate through the questions of our wish.

    iv)Automata – This round is not scary as the

    name. This is simple coding round with 2

    questions. Each one may get different questions.

    1)GCD of n numbers given n and an array of

    numbers

    2)Maximum root to leaf path sum

    I think this section was given 1 hour.

    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.

    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.
