    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)).

    Interview

    It was rather rigorous, however the line of questioning is put in terms which are rather simplistic. If you do your due diligence and have a very good understanding of the world of finance, you will do very well in the interview process

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

    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.
