    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citi in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was approached for this role so not the usual process but still required application and interview. The interview was one on one so not as daunting as a panel interview. Initial contact was very good. I was made to feel welcome and relaxed as I spoke about my past experience.

    I was given the opportunity to ask questions about the company and the role and finished the interview feeling that I had addressed all aspects that I needed to.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citi in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Completed first round interview, arranged through my college. I was interviewed by two employees from their Connecticut and New York locations. The interview was behavioral and they did not stick to a specific structure or rigid questioning. It felt more like a conversation than interview. It was a 30 minute interview based mostly around my resume and current events, as well as how what I do ties into Citi and Corporate Banking.
