Interview

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Buffalo, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. Exactly 2 weeks later to the day got an email from HR who set up an in-person interview in the Buffalo, NY office. Prior to the interview I was given a list of two interviewers whom I would I have paged upon arrival. On the day of the interview I got there about 5 minutes early where much to my amusement the security could not locate my interviewers. The contact information in the Citi Buffalo database is scrambled between departments, apparently. After some time a group of 4 people showed up. Who they were I still do not know to this day as they failed to introduce themselves. As if the experience could not get any better at that point, I was cheerfully informed by the group en route to the interview that they did not have a room available for our interview session. After locating an available room the interview was brief to say the least. Between the aforementioned mishaps and the interview's conclusion, about 20 minutes passed. There were no technicalities in the least. In fact, when I asked about the types of derivative instruments the department worked with they hastily changed the subject. Similarly, I had asked them about Citi's latest corporate developments which landed much media attention lately, only to be told that they have never heard of anything of the sort. So, in the end, suffice it to say I never heard back from them. But about month later I was contacted by a VP from another department who told me that the previous interviewers had footballed me to her. So she wanted to bring me in for an interview immediately. Suffice it to say I never made it to that interview. Between her insistence to play hard-to-get, as well as last minute on-the-day cancellations with a pathetic excuse the lack of professionalism in the Buffalo office is simply appalling.

    Interview

    On-Campus, Superday. Senior people are very friendly and attentive. they value a lot on OCR. Also they offer a lot of networking opportunity. It could be the case that your interviewers are the people who came down to your campus for networking events. You don't hear back immediately, but you should expect at least a week to hear back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process included utilization of phone interview in order to conduct interview process. The overall process was quite informal and included a microsoft excel examination and an access exam. It was interesting that I did not need to go to the actual campus or interview in person; instead, I was contacted by a temp agency by telephone, who had me stand by for a phone interview. At the conclusion of the interview, I was told that I would be considered for the position and later received an offer.
