    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    This was an on-site interview.

    Technical interviewer was pretty emotionless and sarcastic, not to mention that the interviewer constantly cut me off every time I tried to explain what my solution did. The interviewer didn't make me feel welcome at all. I would have greatly appreciated it if he smiled more.

    However, everyone else I spoke to was much more polite. The day ended with a short written technical assessment.

    For all the coding questions, make sure you know how to optimize your solution (i.e. how can I make this better/faster?). YOU WILL BE ASKED TO DO THIS.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citi in September 2017.

    Interview

    Got Interview call through email. HR only communicated through email. This is the only company where HR was shy of talking on phone. Was connected to member on a hiring team.
    She told me about work culture and went over my resume.
    Then was asked for 3 interview back to back on phone.
    People who interviewed me were really smart and working on latest tech.
    My third phone interview was with person who was not interested in what I know.
    But was adamant to know what she works on rather than what position was abt.

    Never heard back from HR. Means I was not selected.

    The only weird part abt citi is the way HR handles recruiting. I think its common with Banking firms.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Citi in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewers never smiled and didn't seem happy to be there. About halfway through the interview one of the interviewers took out their phone and browsed for about 15 minutes while I was talking. Super awkward and made me feel like they obviously didn't want me to be there.
