    KYC Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Citi (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Citi contacted me regarding the role - attended the interview at their Belfast Office with KYC Europe Senior Manager and HR Rep. Was advised that they interviewing for the following 2 weeks so it would be unlikely that I would have an outcome before that time frame. It has now been 6 weeks post the interview and despite emailing the HR Rep who initially approached me, I have heard nothing from Citi regarding the outcome. Very disappointed that a major global company would treat candidates in such an unprofessional manner - not what I expected at all? Poor overall experience and has changed my perceptions of Citi somewhat!

    Sales & Trading Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    My first interview after the phone interview was in the Citi headquarters in Belfast. When I first arrived ten minutes early, I gave my details to the receptionist and was directed to the waiting area. At the agreed time, the interviewer turned up and after a brief greeting I was led to small glass cubicle where the interview was conducted. The interview covered fairly typical topics, why did I want to work for Citi, what skills could I bring to the role etc. There was some more unconventional questions in there which did trip me up slightly. For the sake of anonymity however, I won't discuss what those were. Suffice to say that learning answers by rote will likely not be enough to get you through. My second interview involved a group exercise and this could be challenging depending on your personality. For me, I feel lucky to have been seated beside some fellow interviewees who were very friendly and not at all out for blood. As a group, we had half an hour to decide between several prospective banking projects based on their relative merits. In the end, this proved too much within the time limit and only two of the projects were discussed in any kind of detail. It would be a good idea to keep in mind one or two definite roles for this exercise, such as time keeper or group note taker. If no-one else looks likely to take up either of these roles, fill it yourself. The qualities Citi appeared to look for here were taking initiative, friendliness and imagination.
    The final interview was technical in nature and involved an assignment with their in-house database software, KDB. I was required to learn and do some simple tasks within the two weeks from second to final interview. The task itself was very simple, although it is possible (and perhaps advisable) to go beyond what the task actually asks for. Because I went further than required in the assignment, the technical interview turned out to be quite easy. The main idea of the interview was explaining why I made the choices I did during the assignment. Some questions were asked that I would not have known if I had not taken the time to understand the technology beyond what the task asked for. Take away lesson: don't take shortcuts on the assignment!
    On the whole, the interviewers were professional and friendly. The offices too were extremely clean and modern. I struggle to find a bad thing to say about the company based on what I have seen so far. I would however suggest that if you are about to do the phone interview, you do NOT give them a figure, or even a range. This is a mistake I made and which I now regret.
