    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Very quick process, 3 stages for the summer internship, the same for full time. Good to know many languages - big selling point for Citi. They tend to select people from top universities, love Oxbridge, LSE, Science Po, etc. Read FT before the interview, they like hearing about the deals that Citi did recently

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    In Office first round of interviews for a summer internship in Sales and Trading.

    I was interviewed twice, each time about 30 minutes by an Englishman 5I would say between 26 and 30 years old, Associate level). They were both very nice and did their best to put me at ease. It was much more of a conversation than an interview, nothing really technical, they just want to check our motivation and interest, as well as our work experience, and see if we will cope with high pressure.

    Amazing view on London from the 36th floor!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Citi in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Application form CV and cover letter.
    Applied in September process took about 5 months. Heard back within the hour after the first round, took just over a week to get the offer through after the AC.

    First round consisted of two 30 minute competency interviews with an associate and a vice president. Not technically difficult, usual competency questions, walk through cv, have a good answer as to why citi, and why s&t

    Assessment centre took up an entire day

    First task was a case study project (write a report and prepare a presentation, presented to a director with 10-15 mins of Q&A)
    Then had to re-take the numeracy test
    3 back to back interviews with directors, one seemed to concentrate entirely on your CV, another was a mixture of competency and technical questions, final one was fit/motivation

    Finished the day with a group exercise, given some time to prepare and read through the literature, and then had a 30 minute group discussion where we had to agree on final outcomes

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Citi in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    pleasant staff who put you at ease. Two interviews, one competency and one technical. Competency is fine as long as you think through the answers, technological is a bit harder. They ask things like, what do you know about citi? why do you want to work in tech? what is your favourite piece of tech? This is followed by a group activity which isnt too bad if you think quickly and try to keep the format of conversation well organised
