    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Citi in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    My hiring process was very brief in that I already worked at a company that Citi worked closely with. They had already reviewed my experience and spoken to my boss so there were no surprises.

    Interview Questions
    • Will you be willing to travel is always the hardest for me, neither party seems to know exact on that one.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation at all. I already had a relationship with the company so I received the same salary and that was fine.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Citi in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very comfortable, friendly, non-formal. They were extremely sensitive to any potential nervousness and/or uneasiness. My interviewers genuinely seemed like they respected and appreciated my skills, talents and experience and the value I could add to the organization.

    The interview focused more on personality fit than technical and business skills and experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Why are you looking to leave your current employer?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I explained to them that I was very comfortable and secure in my current role, but that I felt I was being under-utilized and that my opportunities for growth were virtually non-existent.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Citi in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewing for several positions with two different managers at the same time. I decided to choose one specific position and focus on interviewing for that only. I ended up having three telephone interviews, one with an HR representative, one with the hiring manager, and one with his manager. There was no in-person interview.

    The managers seem very capable and technically knowledgeable, and they know what qualities they are looking for in their employees. As long as you are open and honest when answering the questions, the process is very smooth.

    If an offer is extended, you will be expected to complete a drug screen, background check (employment, education, and criminal history), and fingerprinting.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no difficult or unexpected questions. The one that always throws me off is "where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" I still can't figure out a good answer for that one.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was up-front with my requirements, and no negotiation was necessary.
