Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citi.

Interview

Talked to them at a career fair and interviewed the next day. They were very friendly and the interview was rather relaxed. I was surprised they wanted me to interview as I was not well trained in the field they were hiring in, Information Security, but they were insistent that I come anyways.

    The interviewer is polite, he talks about his role in Citi as a security team manager. The internship will be either 8 weeks or 10 weeks, it's in Dallas. To be honest, it's a regular behavioral interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted via an agent. First round was a technical phone interview followed by onsite interviews. Each onsite session was about 50 min with technical challenges. Most of interviewers I met were not well prepared for the interviews. I was asked random questions that would not directly relate to the job. I felt like they were trying to show me that they were smarter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi (Dallas, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview process was really short in my case, supposedly because I was a local candidate with work experience. Had a 45mins phone conversation with the Manager. The conversation was mostly behavioral

    The manager discussed about what his team was doing and then proceeded to ask my experience and projects I worked on. The interview went really well.

    At this point I was expecting an Onsite interview but behold, in two days I get an email for the on-boarding process. It was unbelievable and unexpected. I submitted all the documents they needed and was told that they are working on getting approvals and all for my offer and would take a week or so. I was quite excited at this point.

    Two weeks in and finally a response comes in. I was told that they won't be offering me as they are looking for more experienced candidate. I was shocked and speechless at this. Never have I seen such an interview where you are told an offer is on its way only to be rejected later with an absurd reason which could have been communicated even before the interview process has begun.

    I learnt my lesson that day - Never trust anyone until the offer is in hand.
