Corporate Banking Summer Analyst Interview

Corporate Banking Summer Analyst

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details Had two rounds in the corporate banking division of Citi. First interview was in person with a director and an analyst - was an equal combination of behavioural technical questions - "tell me about a time... walk me though the financial statements, etc. Second round was over telephone with an associate for the team I was interviewing for. Interview was all technical and was probably the toughest I had of the 9 banks I interviewed with.

Interview Question – The tech test is long-ish but not too difficult. Some tricky tech questions in the interview though.   Answer Question

Senior Manager Customer Service Interview

Senior Manager Customer Service
Jacksonville, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in June 2014.

Interview Details I have many friends that work at Citi and have the full qualifications for the position. I initially got rejected a day after I submitted the application online. A Director in a different department (friend) reached out to the director of Customer Service to set up a phone interview. I failed the phone interview with HR because I was "too direct" and got rejected a day later. One more string was pulled and I got a face to face interview with the Director of Customer Service. I feel it was an obligatory interview because she was asked to follow up.

Associate Interview

Associate

Interviewed at Citi

Interview Details Hiring process is similar to other fortune 500 firms. Also helps to network and know people within the firm. Interview process was ok. It was not what I expected as we hardly discussed relevant experience. Interview consisted of sports, strengths and weaknesses. I expect to hear from the interviewer soon.

Interview Question – How did you react when faced with challenges beyond your control?   Answer Question

Internal Auditor Interview

Internal Auditor
Miami, FL (US)

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

Interview Details First I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. Pretty easy but a lot is to educate you about the position. Next round was with two managers in the audit department. Both nice guys but the interview felt high pressure and could tell the expected a lot from candidates. After the interview, I felt like they didn't learn anything about me.

Interview Question – What do you think of risk management?   Answer Question
