It was fairly standard. I was asked about work and education history, hypothetical situations that could arise during work, and whether I could work overtime if I got the position.

I interviewed at Citco

Interview

Four interviews including HR, all seemed unprepared and the interviewers seemed miserable. Despite this I was given an offer. The offer letter lacked basic details such as bonus structure, benefits etc. and also included a six month probationary period. I asked for clarification on these points and more, which took them 9 days to provide despite the offer letter saying 'details available immediately upon request'. After getting my answers I was given two days to accept or decline the offer, then the next day they rescinded it saying they needed a 'candidate that better suited the culture of the company' (despite already giving me an offer). While I waited for clarification on the points I even provided my references and background check info even tho I didn't have to, in good faith and to show my willingness to keep the process moving. The firm they outsource this stuff was incapable of contacting my former employers so it came back to me to dig out old ROEs to provide them. They also reached out to my references with a very long questionnaire with details that were difficult to recall - turned out to be a significant demand on their time. All told I probably spent about 5 or 6 hours on this just to have them rescind it on a whim without even an email or phone call from HR or the hiring manager. Easily the most unprofessional experience of my career. Do not trust these people.

Interview Questions
  • Basic questions, interview was more of a discussion around fit and experience.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Toronto, ON) in Aug 2021

Interview

The HR rep scheduled the interview between myself and the manager - who is in Ireland and I’m in Toronto. I was given his name and not much else about him or the position; I prepared based on the job listing. The interview with the manager went well, he seemed frazzled and scattered, but I thought we had a good conversation. It was clear that he needed someone ASAP to fill this role. He said he was ready to hire me based on one answer I gave around my consulting philosophy. He had nothing to do with the salary, so even though I asked for the range for the position, he said I’d have to meet with HR about salary as he doesn’t get involved with that. After the interview, I sent HR a thank you note and said I hoped to hear from them regarding next steps. Never heard from them again.

Interview Questions
  • Describe a time you had a disagreement with a coworker and how was it resolved?
  • Describe a difficult customer interaction and how it was resolved?

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Toronto, ON) in Jun 2021

Interview

Process felt very unprofessional, they didn't really seem to want to know about me. They asked me about my experience then just grilled me nonstop technical questions. Did not seem interested in how I would fit in the team outside of just doing the day to day tasks. They took every opportunity to discount what I think I can bring and pressured me to take a lower salary range.
