    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rye Brook, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Rye Brook, NY (US)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a number of managers looking to fill positions on operations teams. Mostly wanted to see if I'd be a good fit personality wise, were vague about the actual nature of the job except inexplaining there may at times be some odd hours. Some dismissed me quickly for not being business / finance oriented in my education. Since working here I now know that your past exucation means nothing, you cankniw nothing about finance and fit in here, you just need to know how to work a computer / microsoft excel.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Jersey City, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    Thru recruiter, met HR and manager and peer. What really stood out was being in a closed office with an Human Resources manager that had serious body odor! From talking to others there after hire and speaking with again she smells horrible! It is somewhat of a good representation of being at Citco. It stinks!
