    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (Bangalore).

    Interview

    This was for a position (C10) with Citi bangalore
    It was as usual starting with an initiative from the external consultants(Aug23). I was shortlisted and got a call for interviews in a couple of weeks(17 Sep).

    Sep17 : 1st round of telephonic interviews was pretty straight forward with discussions on my profile and projects. Got a call from the consultants the next day that i was shortlisted and that the second round would be scheduled. [30 mins]

    Sep19: 2nd Round of discussion was more detailed, started off 15 mins early, with a case study by the interviewer who was very friendly and shared a live problem to which a solution was solicited. Went fairly well and i was positive about it. Got another call and was through to the final round. [45 mins].

    Sep25: 3rd Client round - was fairly simple with a call to US with a panel of two ladies. This was again open ended and was targeted to understand my knowledge base of BFSI domain and the factors and techniques i would consider in terms of coming up with a solution. [45 mins]

    Then i got a got a call from the consultant on the next day that i was through this round and should be expecting an HR round which scheduled while i was travelling to my native while on vacation. Post the HR round{Oct 4} which was very brief [7 mins] i got a call for document submission{Oct8} and then offer roll out {Oct14}.

    They made a good offer as per my expectations and I finally accepted the Offer on Oct 18.

    The best part of the interview process was that there were no irrelevant case studies / brain teasers/ guestimates (I despise them) /puzzles. They were all business related.

    Negotiation

    It was an open and shut offer with no room for negotiation. A win win i would say.

    Interview

    Telephonic interview is where they ask for basic details. This is followed by detailed face to face interviews. Later, if one has cleared all this, gets a call from HR, followed by another telephonic interview. The offer may come in next ten to fifteen days. After that it is up to the person whether they accept it or not.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (Mumbai) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The process is well structured. The interviewer accesses the profile and screens the resume accordingly. Best part is they prefer diversity during selection process. First telephonic interview is taken and then 1:1 and last 2 round with Senior management (Same vertical and HR). The interviews are scheduled immediately back to back leading it towards fast closure and lesser waiting time for interviewee.
