    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Warren, NJ) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The first round was telephonic followed by a Face to face round. It took Citi about two weeks to set up the location and time of the interview. While the position is in Warren, NJ the face to face took place in NY.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing difficult. The hiring manager did indicate that he is hiring for a few open roles but I did not expect them to take forever! It has been one month since my first round and I dont have an answer yet on the result! This is extremely unjust to the candidate   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Met with one senior manager who worked with the hiring manager from the group I was applying for who seemed disinterested in the interview process. The person was busy looking at their computer and seemingly monitoring email and IM during the process. Maybe since I was a consultant interviewing for a full time permanent position it was not taken as seriously

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was a single round in-person interview, had three people from the team interview me at once. Behavioral questions mostly, but a random analytical question was asked as well. We started with the usual: going through my resume to get an idea of my experience. Then a few questions were asked on how i would react to teams in different time zones, how different cultures impact work interactions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    One phone interview for initial screening, then an in-person interview with a senior member of the team in which you will be working. The phone interview was roughly 30 minutes and just some questions about work history or qualifications. The in-person 1:1 interview was more about why I wanted this particular role and what i had to offer the team in terms of skills/experiences.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was standard. It consisted of brief questions about background and what I would like to do in the future. In the first round of in person interviews we discussed my work experience and problem solving skills. The second round of interviews was surprisingly short and we talked mostly about the community service I participated in and future goals. After 2 weeks I received an offer.

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were almost non existent. I told the recruiter my expected compensation which he matched. Still choosing benefits.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (Warren, NJ) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Bright, talented people on the team doing the interviewing. They provided thorough explanations of the business and the challenges the position would be addressing, and asked intelligent questions versus rote or gimmicky ones. Very candid about the cons of the job too, which was refreshing and appreciated.

    Position was for a consulting role and a full-time opportunity presented itself.
