    Entry Level Operations Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    First step is an initial phone interview which is barely an interview more so quick HR type questions, about CV and if you knew anyone working at the company etc. very chill and not really an interview more of a chat.
    The second step is an actual interview which was also on the phone (although this is during covid so may usually be face to face) I had 6 days notice in an email explaining it would be competency-based and who I would be speaking to. strangely they provided 2 numbers and said "ring at your allotted time" I rang the first number and was told to hold but after 10 minutes I hung up and rang the second number which is where my interviewer was. which made me look late. however, the interviewer was nice and tried to make you feel relaxed, although I found the questions were quite specific.

    Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I had a 1 hour interview with the hiring manager. He spent 75% of the time talking, and didn't seem too interested in asking questions about my experience. I never heard back from Citi after the interview. Understand they must process many applicants, but a cursory email to at least let me know the outcome of the interview isn't asking much, even if they couldn't offer any specific feedback.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    It was the worst interview experience I've ever had. The atmosphere of the company was really bad, I felt really uncomfortable. I felt like an intruder whom they really didn't want there. The interviewers weren't smiling at all, and they looked very judgemental, stressed and tired.

    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    CV, online exam, telephone interview (back-to-back), assessment centre. The AC contains 1 project presentation, 1 technical interview, 1 behavioural interview. All the way up before the ac things are nice and well, yet it seems that my profile post-ac was being waitlisted as I didn’t get any instant rejection but a system error letter after 2 weeks of AC. Although did get the business card from one of the MDs, oral recognition from two out of three interviewers, yet it still doesn’t guarantee you with offers.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citi (London, England (UK)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 3 members of the team. Very nice people but I don’t think my CV was reviewed properly before being invited as I didn’t seem to tick any of their boxes. The interview process was a bit disjointed, was told by HR I would be meeting 2 people in separate interviews but it was a group/ panel interview when I arrived which threw me off.

    Mainly three technical rounds with VPs and head of the department. The rounds were mainly around the current role and the expectations. HR follow ups are quite painful as there are barely any reverts.
