Software Developer Interview

Software Developer

I applied through a staffing agency and 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
Mumbai

I applied through a staffing agency and 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.

Interview Question – 8 rounds of F-2-F interview in my case.   View Answer

Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dallas, TX (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in March 2014.

Interview Details I attended a career fair at my university website and applied through the Citi website. I got an email for scheduling an on campus interview for the next week. The interview was fairly laid back and conversational, and the interviewer talked about himself for most of the time.

Cashflow Modeling Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Buffalo, NY (US)

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details The process of interview is pretty much what you would expect from a typical interview. However, the interviewers have interviewed so many interviewees in one day so that they got tired at the end of the day. So if you are one of the last few interviewees in the day, you may find the interviewers being tired and their voice are low. It is much more difficult to impress them given they barely have the energy to dig into you.

Interview Question – Be prepared with technical questions. They may ask you basic questions about their products. They also ask about your computer skills or programing skills if you mentioned it on your resume. Some candidates say they were asked a lot of questions about database.   Answer Question

Sales & Trading Analyst Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in February 2014.

Interview Details The process was actually very quick and easy, with a few phone interviews leading up to a San Francisco Super Day. 9 candidates for 4 positions. Met with almost every asset class trader first, then one on one interviews after. Very market oriented questions, you need to know what is going on in the world

Interview Question – You have a client that has been on vacation for the last 20 days. He wants to be filled in on what news he missed, how it affected markets, and how he should alter his portfolio and future trades accordingly.   Answer Question
