    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Istanbul (Turkey)).

    Interview

    Recruitment decision is given by direct manager rather than HR. Be nice to HR people. Don't look like a challenging person. Be passionate and don't be smartass. You should explain what you did and your capabilities. Convince them that you are the right person.

    Citi is looking for bright profiles but be modest. Currently organization is around 500 people and if you are VP and above you are at the top 100.

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was brought in for 2 rounds of extensive interviews. Strangely, HR was not involved in the process whatsoever (from what I could tell). There was no formal schedule of interviewers - that part lacked organization - but they made a strong effort to see as many candidates 1-on-1 as possible. At least 4 interviews each round. Came away with a positive impression of the people there. Work culture seemed a bit intense, but that was expected. The negative part was a lack of communication after the interviews - I eventually did hear from them but I had to make several calls to get some answers. Despite some improvements that can be made to the process, my overall perception of the group was positive.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by four members of my group, all seniors, VPs and above. When they called me to interview with the group head, i knew that most likely I'm close to getting the job. the interviews were not too difficult but the seniors can be a bit intimidating. You have to show them that you want the job and it's important to you for growth and experience.

    Interview Questions

    • the most unexpected question is "if you were hired, how long do you plan to be with our team". that basically stunned me but i was able to answer speaking about definitely seeing myself with the team for at least 5 years. The director smiled. she said "that's all i'll ask of you- a commitment of five years" and i got the offer and have been with the group for 8 yrs.   Answer Question
