    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citi (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the company's website. A few days later I got an email with two lines of words from one HR guy. He asked me to give him a call him when I have time in the email. I called when I saw the email. Nobody answered and I left a voice mail with my cell phone number. Approximately the guy called me back one hour later. During the conversation, my home phone was ringing suddenly, and I excused for a second and held the phone so that I can answer the sudden phone call and told the unexpected caller to call me later. I quickly hung up the home phone in a few seconds and resumed back to the conversation with the guy from Citi. He seemed to be unhappy with this situation and quickly finish our conversation. This means I was declined so promptly.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Citi (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Not impressed. Interviewer showed up late and dressed very casually. Was actually very arrogant, and I left the interview and called the recruiter to tell him that I was not interested in progressing. The interviewed did not know or understand the position into which I was applying for and yet there was an arrogant tone.
