    Citi Card Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Not transparent at all. No one emailed me to confirm anything. The only reason I knew I had a first round interview was because of my school's application portal. First round was meeting with one representative in an on-campus interview suite. During the 30 minute interview my interviewer spent probably 20 minutes of it talking about himself, barely asking me any behavioral let alone any industry related questions (granted, it was the last interview slot of the day). Given that he didn't take the time to get to know me, I didn't expect much out of it.

    I emailed him a follow up, and received no reply about the timeline and potential next steps. No contact from a recruiter or HR at all.

    I assume I didn't make it past this stage (I would have been surprised if I did given the fact that the interviewer was mostly there to talk about himself)

    IOS Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online at the end of July 2017 for an iOS position based in LIC. Received an email two days later from a citi recruiter to schedule a phone interview with another person. I scheduled it within the next 48 hours. The interview seemed to be outsourced and ended speaking in the phone for 1 hour. Most questions were technical and easy ios questions so get to know your typical ios development questions. Interviewer was a foreigner and sometimes hard to understand. Also, not friendly..it was 1 hour non-stop questions. At the end, I ended up asking my questions about the team, ios work and company. I was not given the person's title or email so at the end, communications was to be between citi recruiter and I. For this reason, I sent my thank you email to the recruiter and a follow up days later. I received no replies. When I inquired again about my job status a week later, I was ignored again. Now, I was not expecting this from such a company like Citi. At least, it would look more professional if I get a rejection email. I don't expect that kind of behavior from such a big company as Citi! Boring, long, non-personable interview in addition to recruiter's "ghosting" behavior...That behavior alone changed my experience to a negative one.
