Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in November 2016.

Interview

Opened up with a case study, then proceeded to one on one interviews. They were very welcoming and inviting to talk to. There is nothing to worry about as long as you are prepared. I found that the interview wasn't extremely numbers based. They were more focused on getting a read of your personality. Act confident and know what you are talking about!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Referred by a university alum about Full-Time openings in late August. Went through 4 phone screens, 3 of them with associates who were extremely technical and 1 VP who was all behavioral. At Superday, was given a 1 hour "finance" exam and then 8 20 minute interviews, ranging from analysts, associates, and VPs with questions revolving heavily around technicals (some from standard interview books, others completely out of the box) and prior internship experience. Overall, everyone was extremely nice and the process was very streamlined and efficient.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was on campus with an alumni working in the IB group. He was quite arrogant and gave off the vibe that he, and Citi, were better than me. He focused on obscure technical questions and was very combative when I offered a response that was not exactly what he was looking for.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very Easy and Standard, some of the employees were following a script and looked uninterested beside a young one who came up with his own questions and that was the best part of the interview, original, hard problems. As an engineer I had fun at this part as he was asking questions that neither he didn't know the answers to. He appreciated my quantitative system analysis approach and we stayed in contact afterwards

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    All the basic banking interview questions (valuation, walk me through your resume, etc). Spent a lot of time going through my background. Overall, not very challenging. I think others might have had different questions.

    Interview Questions

    • There really were no difficult or unexpected questions. I had already been in the process elsewhere so I knew what to expect.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Did not proceed with actual interview due to Citi's inflexibility in interviewing/hiring process length.
