I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in February 2013.

Interview Details Initial phone screen with VP at the local office followed by an onsite interview with three people - 30 minutes each back-to-back. The phone screen was interesting, the interviewer was very aggressive in his explanation of the company - gave a good look into culture - seems like one of domination. The onsite interviews were not hard and went through fast. The HR, however, was unprofessional and did not follow up within the promised deadline.

Interview Question – What is your prediction for the US economy?   Answer Question
