    Digital Marketing Manager (SEO) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through the corporate site. The position was advertised as being in Dublin/Belfast. I was emailed back by an assistant and told I had been selected for a phone interview. I had queried whether the role could be located in Dublin as it was not clear from the job description. They said no, that the role was in Belfast. Soon after, I was told that the hiring manager in fact wanted to meet me in Dublin and they didn't require me to do a phone interview which I thought was a positive sign. So after that confusion, the interview itself was fine but I felt that I had not received a lot of information from HR regarding the position. When I met with the hiring manager I was told that the position was actually at executive level, despite extensive years of experience being listed in the job requirements. I did not receive feedback for over 2 weeks and had to phone HR myself (after emailing twice) to find out that I did not get the position. The company seems like it would be a great place to work but I did find them lacking with regards sufficient information for candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Citi (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 1 brief technical phone interview + 4 meetings (in this order): data engineer, software dev team lead, architect and HR. Subsequently they asked for references. Then comes expectation (salary) coordination (WAY too late in the process). Be sure to LEAD with your salary expectations, or you'll be wasting your time (as, it turns out, I have wasted mine).

    Vice President Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had an internal employee referral. Had a simple phone interview with a junior analyst where (if I recall) they began by asking me about myself. Walked through my resume, proceeded to ask them about themselves, they told me about the program, and the conversation really just took off. Easy interview, just ask very interested and understand the two most basic questions - why citi, and why finance.

    Got an offer to fly to NYC for superday. Full day Superday from 8 AM - 3 PM in Long Island City Office. About 10-15 other candidates. Begins with case study which you have 30 mins or an hour to review. Each candidate interviews with 3 different people, but there are large breaks in between so you could have a long time to continue reviewing your case study.
    One soft interview - why citi - why finance - etc. Very relaxed.
    One soft skill interview with a handful of predetermined questions.
    One case study review interview, but I could tell my interviewer didn't really care that much so as soon as I presented my thoughts to him we just started talking about him instead (which I would guess he liked).

    At the end of the day groups of 4-5 candidates go into conference rooms for another case study where you have 5 mins to read it while the interviewers observe. You are then asked to discuss it among the group, while the interviewers continue to observe.

    Interview was on a Friday, I was called with an offer on the following Monday.
