    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interviews were with senior managers who sit off-site, but were otherwise straightforward. Since I was an internal candidate, questions about the company's products, practices, etc. were dispensed with in favor of discussing why I was interested in transferring from one area of the company to another. The second-round interview was in-person with another team member who asked mostly about my work style and seemed intent on determining whether my personality would fit with the team.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you comfortable communicating with upper management?   Answer Question

    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.

    Interview Questions
