    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Florence, KY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    A bit intimidating but i made it through. Basic to some complex & sophisticated questioning. They asked some stuff i have never beem asked before but if you have common sense and be honest, you will be just fine answering the questions. Warning though- you WILL have to show proof of a Highschool diploma or GED in which inwas not aware of. Which is why i didn't get to start- i had my ged certificate elsewhere out of town with my grandmother who possibly have lost it more than likely by now. But asking for proof of my educational background was entirely knew for me as this was the only company that have asked me for proof of thisz”. I thinkthis is bery unnecessary and it slowed down the hiring process for me VERY MUCH. Never again

    Application

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

    Interview

    The first stage of the interview process was a 45' phone interview with 2 Citi's employees. The interviewers were not very friendly and did not make me feel very comfortable. Although most of the questions were competency-based, there were also technical questions requiring IT and programming knowledge.
