    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Four 20-minute one-on-one interviews, followed by a 1 hour group exercise. The one-on-one interviews were very technical, while the group exercise was aimed towards seeing how you work within a team using softer skills.

    Interview

    After filling out the application online I got a phone call from one of the recruiters in HR. I set up an in person interview for the following week. I met with the hiring manager and another executive. They asked pretty basic why should we hire you and why do you want this position questions. I got a phone call a week later and got the job!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone screen with someone from the Human Resource Department: this involved basic resume-related and behavioral questions, also asked about Citi's business and outlook in the location I applied for.

    Second round was a video interview: also behavioral but it involved questions about the Indonesian economy and the role of Citi as a Foreign Bank (exposed to a lot of regulation, etc).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citi (Getzville, NY).

    Interview

    There were two interviews: an initial meeting with one manager, then a larger "group" interview (many candidates and separate meetings with multiple managers). The initial interview could've just been a phone interview (basic "get to know you" kind of questions) and the second round (the "group") felt oddly competitive/not welcoming. All the candidate were in a one room together, then called to interview (a total of 3 interviews) with different managers (each "testing" a different subject/skill). There wasn't any "true" testing of skills (e.g. no computer or written tests) just answering questions in a face-to-face setting.

    I'm not sure they still do this as the Operations Analyst program was scrapped, but they probably still do something like this for new graduates.

    Interview Questions

    • It has been nearly six years since this interview so I don't remember any of the questions. There were the normal stumbling blocks though (i.e."So tell me about yourself...)   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR for an exploratory interview, then met the team & 2 directors. After making it past the first round, rendezvousing with HR, the final round was met with hostility and a sarcastic attitude by one of the hiring managers. She sat with her arms folded, staring me down. A bit intimidating and left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Afterwards, wasn't contacted by anyone even though I inquired about my candidacy. The way they treat potential candidates is pretty awful as they don't respond or keep you in the loop.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    Unnecessarily long
    Two interviews with 2 panels and then on to a group project
    Was what I would imagine applying to a call centre was like only a lot longer
    Took four hours or so. Was a waste of time and a lot of unnecessary aspects.
    Applying for a job that is actually very simple and the interview was as if you were applying for a surgeons role
