    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting at a target school. First round on campus. Really straightforward and casual. Got invited to the superday two days later which was the following week.

    Superday was competitive - every kid I met was from a target school too. Had to complete a markets specific case and present it in one of the interviews. Then 3 more interviews all with MDs, all pretty technical. One was a stress interview. Got the offer a couple weeks later.

    Applied in Octover via campus website, first round on campus interview towards the end of October. First round was very "fit" based along with a few questions on the current markets, the Fed, etc. and a stock pitch. they mainly wanted to see if you are really interested.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews, followed by a Superday at the NYC office which consisted of one case interview and 3 other one-on-one interviews.
    Phone interviews are easier, asked mostly general fit/resume based questions. Superday interviews were tougher. One seemed to be a stress interview. One was a markets based interview and another was a behavioral interview.

Have reasons for choosing S&T and not IB or consulting. Be prepared for the holy super day.
