    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (Mississauga, ON).

    Interview

    Very disorganized. I learned that they are hiring through friends and applied. Received an interview call and was asked a bunch of questions. Then I did a face to face interview where we spend 2 hours talking about random stuff followed by 2 technical questions. Mostly language specific.

    Interview Questions

    • Random questions, like how many bits in a byte? or java specific questions   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They initially said they like me a lot but were not willing to negotiate at all. I wasn't okay with the terms of their offer and they stopped responding to my emails! So unprofessional.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Citi (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    one hour written technical test based on programs related to OOPS, recursion, SQL and a little bit of networking. After that 3 back to back interviews with 3 groups having 2 managers in each group.

    They have a standard and they offer one of the best package in the market. So there is nothing much to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview

    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.

    interviewed at Citi in September 2013.

    Applied online during campus recruitment. Received two rounds of interviews. Met with 2 MDs. Mix of technical and behavioural questions. You need to be well read on current market trends, etc. Being the right fit for them is very important. Less of an emphasis on the usual Investment Banking valuation, accounting questions.

    Hard to negotiate as this give standardized salaries to all analysts in this program.

    Interview Questions

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