    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)).

    It was pretty straightforward. There are 2 rounds of interviews. First one with HR. Second one with someone from the division you applied to. They both asked fairly similar standard competency based questions about teamwork and past leadership experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Fairly simple competency based questions and info about the specific division, I would seriosuly recommending knowing about the divison you are applying for as many of the questions are related around this. And also prepare a lot for different practical based questions such as what's a time you worked poorly in a team? what is a time you found yourself in a difficult position with a college?
