    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (Jersey City, NJ) in January 2009.

    Interview

    I was being interviewed for position of SSAS 2005 developer. I got this contingent offer from one company who already had many of their consultants placed with the client. The whole interview lasted for around 20 minutes. The interviewer asked few questions about my past experience and was generally pleased. He asked me about semi-additive measures and named queries in particular. I explained it correctly. I thought interview went pretty well but I did not get the offer. I believe he had already made his mind before interviewing me because I don't recall any question that I couldn't answer correctly. I too didn't press the middle company as the job was a long commute.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi in February 2015.

    Interview

    The process of interviewing with Citi's Engineering dept. was unprofessional. The hiring manager missed our initial phone interview without any notice, and then the HR recruiter tells me to let him know if and when the manager calls by COB, assuming I was going to wait the rest of the day for the interview. We rescheduled the phone interview for the following day.

    The person interviewing me had a very deep accent and I had to ask multiple times to repeat the question. The questions were easy and not deeply technical, but in less than 24 hours of business day they decided to go "with another person," even though I know I did well in answering the questions. Seems like they already made their decision prior to my interview.

    Interview

    3 technical rounds followed by 1 managerial round.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Citi in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process was moderate at difficulty level but had a lot of rounds. They tested technical skills, behavioural skills and temperament to tackle real life issues in software industry. In all there were 5 rounds but I believe the technical round was the key.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Citi (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 1 brief technical phone interview + 4 meetings (in this order): data engineer, software dev team lead, architect and HR. Subsequently they asked for references. Then comes expectation (salary) coordination (WAY too late in the process). Be sure to LEAD with your salary expectations, or you'll be wasting your time (as, it turns out, I have wasted mine).
