Corporate Banking Summer Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
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.

Technology Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Citi
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 Question – The tech test is long-ish but not too difficult. Some tricky tech questions in the interview though. Answer Question
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi.
Interview Details The interview process was very speedy. Contacted via e-mail to interview on-campus and received a phone call shortly after for an invitation to second rounds at the headquarters. Everyone was very friendly throughout the process and they have a nicely decorated office in a great location.
Interview Question – Why Citi? Answer Question
Senior Manager Customer Service Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
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.
Investment Banking Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citi in September 2013.

Associate Interview (Neutral Experience)
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.

Internal Auditor Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.
