    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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 Details

    Obtained the interview through campus recruiting. First round was straightforward with basic questions on garbage collection, polymorphism etc. A few riddles as well. The final round (second round, actually) included attending the head office, writing a 45 min technical test and 2 interviews with hiring managers (one tech, one attributes).

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

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    The first interview is a behavioral questions, they called me within a week. They let me know that they would be flying me out. I was toured around the Irving campus and introduced to several other candidates. The management came and pulled each applicant for interviews with potential managers. I interviewed with two managers whose background was in networking. I did not have much experience in networking protocols. The questions they asked were primarily applied algorithms and theory.

    Very quick process, 3 stages for the summer internship, the same for full time. Good to know many languages - big selling point for Citi. They tend to select people from top universities, love Oxbridge, LSE, Science Po, etc. Read FT before the interview, they like hearing about the deals that Citi did recently

    Markets Rates, Quantitative Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews, two in person and one on the phone. They were mostly very nice. However their questions were not very easy to handle. Didn't hear back from them since the second onsite interview (it's been more than 2 months).

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly technical and resume based questions. Since this role is about model implementation (so I guess), C++ skills were very much emphasized. A lot tests on that, including writing codes on an editor. Detail-driven. They were very interested in digging into your projects and asked many follow-up questions.   Answer Question
