    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and got a first round phone interview where some basic behavioral and technical questions were asked. Then I was invited to NYC for a super day which consists of a math (half an hour) and programming test (one hour), then followed by 4 face to face interviews. Overall the people are great and chill, very nice experience.

    IOS Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online at the end of July 2017 for an iOS position based in LIC. Received an email two days later from a citi recruiter to schedule a phone interview with another person. I scheduled it within the next 48 hours. The interview seemed to be outsourced and ended speaking in the phone for 1 hour. Most questions were technical and easy ios questions so get to know your typical ios development questions. Interviewer was a foreigner and sometimes hard to understand. Also, not friendly..it was 1 hour non-stop questions. At the end, I ended up asking my questions about the team, ios work and company. I was not given the person's title or email so at the end, communications was to be between citi recruiter and I. For this reason, I sent my thank you email to the recruiter and a follow up days later. I received no replies. When I inquired again about my job status a week later, I was ignored again. Now, I was not expecting this from such a company like Citi. At least, it would look more professional if I get a rejection email. I don't expect that kind of behavior from such a big company as Citi! Boring, long, non-personable interview in addition to recruiter's "ghosting" behavior...That behavior alone changed my experience to a negative one.

    Interview

    I get the on campus interview. One behavior question and the others are all about math and probability. From what I remembered: calculate the conditional probability; Fibonacci number; clock angle.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of phone and in-person interviews. The in-person interviews were significantly better than the phone interviews. One interviewer seemed to have made his decision about me before the interview even started, so it was unpleasant. The rest of the interviewers were great and people I would love to work with. The HR rep overseeing my case was excellent.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Straightforward simple review of resume with a couple questions. Seemed more on the side on just meeting me as a person more than an interview. I interviewed with a panel who each had their turn to talk to me.
