Operations Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Belfast, Northern Ireland

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Citi in December 2013.

Interview Details The overall experience was very good. At the start only CV had to be submitted on-line and after closing date received an e-mail inviting me to the assessment centre. Had an option to choose between couple of days plus morning or afternoon session. All people I've met that day were lovely and tried to get everybody to relax and do our best.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected: Why Citi; what is good customer service; what I expect from the job; can I bring something to the company. Competency based: multitasking, problem solving, coping under pressure.   View Answer

CTS Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details 4 interviews one on one on-site (including one as timed case study presentation).
Very nice people interested in knowing about your reasons for applying and being able to connect it with relevant prior experience. Evidence of research into company was built upon into conversation with interviewers as well as general questions about why the company, banking, why now, and some questions on projects in previous roles.

Interview Question – Question based on timed case study which referred to an aspect not seen due to time constraints of case study.   Answer Question

IB Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
London, England

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in January 2014.

Interview Details Applied online, followed up with cold calling and a phone pitch. Did three phone interviews that were mostly technical and IB related. The big surprise was in the AC- No technical questions but you get stretched with the business case and the other activities. Time management is key and you get evaluated against people with you in the AC.

Interview Question – At&t wants to acquire a telecom company in Nigeria- Briefly discuss with me five points that you want to raise as an adviser to the client's meeting tomorrow?   View Answer

Summer Analyst/Corporate Banking Interview

Anonymous Employee
London, England

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citi in November 2013.

Interview Details Fast tracked to the AC from the spring week programme. The AC was quite intense with numerical test, FT exercise, case study presentation, and 2 additional interviews. The interviews were very competency based and the expected Why corporate banking? But everything was quite straight forward and there were no big surprises.

Interview Question – For me the case study presentation was the hardest - but thinking about it afterwards it was actually quite easy. Just make sure to use your time wisely and start by doing all the calculations of profits for different projects, and after that eliminate projects with a lot of risks.   Answer Question
