    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I got the interview through the referral of a recruiter for another program. It was a simple phone interview, it was scheduled to take 30 minutes but we ended up going for 45. The interviewer first introduced the program in the start of the call, then proceeded to ask me 3 fairly simple probability questions to gauge my quantitative skills. After that, there was an opportunity to have some open dialogue and ask the recruiter any questions I had.
