    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Got call through job consultant.
    Worst experience ever I had in a interview .
    Interviewer may make mistake but more than 2/3 is totally unheard.
    Most of the questions like "tell me the definition type of questions" more over won't allow you to finish answers.
    If you are preparing for amazon google or ms interviews this place is not for you.
    I feel time is wasted , this review is about a particular interview not of the company,
    Neither I am putting this as frustration for not clearing it, but a junk should be labeled as junk.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    This hiring was for pune location and interview happened in Bangalore.
    I was contacted through a consulting agency, and when i went to the interview location at scheduled time, i was told that it was first come first. I had to wait for 2 hours and then in interview, Interviewer was not even listening. He was more worried about not having lunch at 2 PM. And his behavior was so rude as if he just wanted to get rid of the process.
    Questions asked:
    Tell me about executor framework.
    Difference in Future and Callable.
    Singleton and Decorator pattern.
    How two systems communicate each other?
    I answered all of them but considering his behavior I left the venue after first round.
    Will never ever apply for citi bank in my life.

    Analyst/Senior Analyst-Finance @ CITICORP India Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mumbai
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    The interview process comprises of preliminary screening and then face to face interview.
    Its difficult to exactly tell how many rounds of face to face interview exist because I could only get to 8 th round.
    I can say this literally every senior person in CITI at Nirlon Park had interviewed me face to face.

    And please note that all rounds are elimination.Once manager will approve it , then your resume flows to another guy who interviews you.If succesful he forward it to third.and it goes like this.

    And guess what you don't even get the feedback.
    In my case consultant was Elixir-Web.When I asked them for feedback , they said they will let me know.Later they called me to know If company contacted me directly.
    Then after 3 months they drop a email to check if CITI directly contacted me and I joined.They dont trust their clients.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citi in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recommended by friend. Applied via global website. The recruitment team was obstructive and unhelpful, required intervention from line manager to progress. Admin initially efficient. All correspondence via email to arrange interview. Interview conducted onsite with two line managers. Conduct of interview was very professional. Mostly focussing on work history and behavioural questions.
    There was no contact with Citi post interview. No official notification was ever received. I found out via friend that despite interviewing strongly the role went to an internal candidate. Recruitment HR ignored all follow up requests for feedback.

    Interview Questions
    • Very little on the technical aspects of the job (operations isn't that difficult), mostly behavioural questions to see ascertain if "good fit" with management and team.   Answer Question
