    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There were four stages to the interview. First interview was with an Associate. Second round of interviews are with two Vice-Presidents who tackle behavioural and technical questions. Final round is with a Managing Director who focus their questions mainly on 'fit' based questions. First three interviews were on the phone and last was a VC. Interviewers are very personable and interviews became more of a structured conversation.

    Standard interview with SVP and with VP (both 30min each). They were all friendly and interested. I was mostly asked about my experience, fit questions and their relevance to the role. Also had discussion on current events, markets, products and investor trends, etc. Overall pretty good conversation. When I chased HR I was sent a pretty long rejection email detailing the process and useful feedback on my candidacy. Overall good experience
