    AVP-Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    I applied online, several days later got a phone interview with a recruiter and then a director. The questions were very easy, introducing my background which was relative to this position, and a very simple coding question. The director seemed to be very nice. And 20 minutes later I received a rejection letter. Everything just happened so fast that I couldn't notice what was wrong with me. One reason I could guess was when we were talking on the phone the connection was really bad, which made me an unprofessional candidate. But it was really not my phone's fault.

    Vice President Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    I applied online for a somewhat technical VP role that i was highly qualified for. Approx. one week later, a recruiter (from another city, same company) called to set up a phone screen for the following week. It was a very simple conversation, basically just walked him through my resume. Then about 1.5 weeks later, I had my first call with a business VP - again, resume walkthrough. Several days later, a second call with a different business VP - again, resume walkthrough, but wanting detail on specific project outcomes. It was clear to me by this point that Citi was highly interested. Had a final video interview with SVP who asked me about one project and then told me at end of call that they would be extending offer the following week. Monday, recruiter called and gave informal verbal offer which was followed later that week by formal offer.

    I noticed that as I began speaking with people at Citi, the waiting time between communications grew smaller and smaller, and recruiter was adamant that business was interested. I felt it pretty clear they were interested as they didn't let more than a day or two go by without some sort of communication. The longest wait was between the time I applied, the time I heard from recruiter, and then phone screen with recruiter. I think this was almost 3 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Citi (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Met the recruiters through a school career fair, interviewed with them a few days later. The recruiters were very engaging and it was a comfortable, interesting conversation. It was an even split between technical and behavioral questions. Overall, it was a great experience. The interviewers seemed invested in my growth as a professional and offered to transfer me to other positions that I might be a better fit for.
