    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Citi in December 2014.

    2 long phone calls and then a sit down. The phone calls give hope of being hired but then they drop off the face of the earth for 3-5 months and then call you back for a one on one.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Apply online and after two weeks received a phone call from HR (usually a FL number) about the opportunity. The recruiter asks basic questions like current employment, availability (BIG ONE), a little about yourself, and why you applied for the position. Depending on the recruiter (mine was amazing and so helpful through the whole process) s/he tells you a date and time for an interview at a Citi location. It's not a location you apply to but one close by, for the most part. I was interviewed a week later by two branch managers and the area director. They want someone with a personality. That is seriously #1 like even with my resume, they kept asking me to show me my smile which was irritating because I can't smile and talk... How annoying is that? I didn't have teller experience but the interviewers were really impressed with my personality and how articulate I was because honestly other than that I have zero sales or banking experience. My previous jobs had all been at retail folding clothes.
    #1 tip: Be upbeat and smile! Fake it till you make it! They will hire you if you have a friendly and outgoing personality!

    After the interview, if you receive an email from HR, you're hired. They do background checks. They contact ALL your previous employers so don't lie. You have to go in for finger prints and a drug test. The clearing is what takes long. Took them three weeks to clear everything. After that, I went to some HQ building for Citi where I had a full day of training with other new hires. We learn about Citi history for about 9 hours—it's paid.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Was made to wait an hour for a scheduled interview with many other applicants at a local branch.
    Met with two Human Resource people who were both full of hot air.
    Met with a VP of something and he was very nasty and sent me on a wild goose chase to interview at another branch.
    A waste of everyone's time. Bad company with delusional ideas on how to blame the tellers for the company's failure. Top executives like the CEO refuse to take responsibility and have the tellers subjected to random checks- they call customers and ask the customer for feedback on the transaction. Then you are fired.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't you agree the teller is the foundation of the company and is the most important position in the company and that the tellers are soley responsible for the success or failure of our bank?   Answer Question
