    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    The process was through a temp agency, screening process took a while and then the interview was very procedural. Focus on attention to detail, as that is integral to the job. Management wants worker bees for this role; don't rock the boat, just meet your assigned quotas. The staffing agency generally has no idea what the role is, and some of the people were not cut out for it. Moderate excel skills needed (temp agency may give a test), but overall it just requires someone with strong attention to detail and an analytical mind.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus then 6- 25 minute one on ones. Heard now its down to 3 one on one. Got a call when I landed. They hire about 30-35 interns and then give about 20-25 offers and then hire 5-10 full-time.

    Interview Questions
    • Just know your Resume 100%. Nothing really technical if you have interviewed with a bank before but some technical questions off your resume are fair game. They want hard working people who actually want to work there.   Answer Question

    Sales & Trading Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Citi is known for its notoriously tough interviewers, especially in Sales and Trading. The most important thing to remember is that they are looking to see how the interviewee handles pressure. Avoiding showing frustration is positive, you should always remain calm even when they are challenging your answers or being rude/demeaning (very common!). The interviews are definitely technical, so don't bring up information during your stock pitch that you don't know backwards and forwards.

    Interview Questions
    • When would have been the ideal time to buy this stock?   Answer Question
