    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Citi (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Total waste of time. Interviewers are looking for employees who will make them look good, fearful of losing their positions by engaging with qualified candidates. (High turnover/job losses due to merger)

    Interview Questions

    • What do you do in your free time? Basically nothing substantive   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Campus interview, which was 2:1; then a day of interviews in NYC with various members of the group at all different levels. Most of the questions were behavioral - asked about past work experiences, how work is relevant to the job, etc. I was asked a couple of basic finance 101 questions, but nothing too severe. Overall a pretty relaxed interview process

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi in January 2009.

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews. The first round was on campus with a Current Associate. The second round was a back to back series of interviews in NY. There I interviewed with current associates, HR representatives and senior managers.
    I do not recall specific interview questions but all the interviews were behavioral. There was also a small case about current challenges for the business.

    Associate Interview

    Interview

    Hiring process is similar to other fortune 500 firms. Also helps to network and know people within the firm. Interview process was ok. It was not what I expected as we hardly discussed relevant experience. Interview consisted of sports, strengths and weaknesses. I expect to hear from the interviewer soon.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amherst, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Amherst, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and through a referral who also received my application. Called back about a week later for a phone call with a VP and to schedule an interview. The interview was straight forward, the usual tell me about yourself...strengths/weaknesses hardly any technical questions which was a little odd. Overall, the interviewers felt aloof and disconnected to reality, and I didn't leave with a positive impression of employees and the Amherst offices. Got a call another week later saying they would like to hire me. Went over compensation packages and declined almost immediately.
