Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2013.

Interview

Standard interview process, with online exams and case study. The case study is very difficult, pitting you against other interviewees. Being yourself and cool and calm is critical. Because you're going against the best, it's important to know and describe how you stand out.

    Interview

    Mostly HR and CV based questions to check fit with the role and the company. Also tested simple finance concepts. You need not have a pre-existing finance background. However, sound reasoning as to why you wish to join Citi and giving logical answers to their questions would probably be necessary.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    4 rounds of interviews with very different Senior Directors. Initial interview with a recruiter screening to ensure minimum qualifications were met. Kind of felt left in limbo as to what would happen next, sometimes waiting weeks before hearing back from the company. So if you are still waiting, hang in there.
