    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was a shoo-in. They already knew from my resume that they wanted me - the interview was just a formality to make sure I could present myself as well as my resume said I could. It was perhaps the easiest interview I have ever had. I am grateful for that.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    One appointment, met with five different employees - some higher, some would be colleagues. Job description is useless as jobs there are totally fluid based on changing focus of group CFO.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    digest them and position yourself accordingly: The People Interviewing You May Dread Interviewing You. The Hiring Team May Not (Yet) Have Clarity on the True Needs for This Role. They Will Subconsciously Judge You Before You Open Your Mouth. They May Not Extend the Offer to the “Most Qualified” Person.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi in January 2014.

    Interview

    After getting a phone call to setup an interview I came into the site. I sat with 3 managers over the course of an hour and a half to 2 hours.

    I met with 1 Vice President, 1 Sr Vice President, and 1 Director. The Director was a softball interview as he was the last person and assumed everything else had been covered by his 2 directs.

    The Vice President didn't really seem to have a good grasp on the group's responsibilities. There had been a lot of turn over (3 people on a 5 person team left) and they needed someone who was looking for an opportunity to prove him or herself.

    The SVP reiterated similar lines. They asked mostly basic questions anyone with a 3.0 in any college subject could answer. Then they asked extremely niche questions relating to the position. I answered honestly and with the niche questions, when I said I didn't know, they said they could train me.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the managers seemed really green and unequipped to do their jobs.

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Citi (Tampa, FL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very quick interview process from the original recruiter call to the interview was one day.
    They tell you what building to go to for the interview but not that there are several garages and you can end up parking on the other side of campus. Very high security, make sure you take your ID or you will not get it. Beautiful building and grounds, very bright and looks recently updated.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2009.

    Interview

    The interview consisted mainly of the hiring manager describing the job in great detail. I then went over my work experience. There were a few situational questions, such as, how you would handle adversity and gaining a consensus from multiple people. I thought the interview went very well. Unfortunately, communication from HR was non-existent. I attempted to follow up with the HR recruiter but no calls were returned. Several months later, I received an email that thanked me for my time.
