Interview Process
Test HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
120 Minutes
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Programming
  • Section 2: Quant
  • Section 3: Logic & Reasoning
  • Section 4: English
  • Section 5: Coding
Interview Experience
The first one hour was an aptitude test consisting of MCQs based on 4 sections. The first section was programming related, consisting of questions related to binary trees, figuring out the output of a given pseudo code, completing a given pseudo code, finding the error in the given code, etc. The Quant section contained fairly simple questions but with very limited time. Lots of numerical calculations involved and use of calculator was not allowed. L&R section was again fairly straightforward but had many questions with limited time. English questions consisted of picking out the grammatically correct sentence, sentence sequencing, vocabulary (meaning of word/antonym of word, etc) and comprehension based questions. If you're preparing for CAT or other similar exams then this test will be simple for you.

The second hour of the test was the coding round. Two problem statements were given and we had to type out the code, compile it and run it. We had the option of C, C++ and Java. Full marks if the code ran successfully, zero otherwise. There were no in between marks for steps or incomplete codes, even if the logic was correct.
Interview Tips
You'll find online mock tests for CAT for Quant, L&R and English sections. Focus on speed and accuracy, the questions won't be tough but the time will be limited with lots of questions. For the coding section it should suffice if you've had sufficient experience with coding. Even if you haven't (as I didn't) you'll still be fine. For the novices I'd suggest focusing on famous algos such as trapezium pattern, etc.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Questions
    Interview Experience
    It was an extremely peaceful interview. There were 2 interviewers for my IT profile. I told them frankly that I didn't have much experience in coding, I had just done a course in my first year and an online course as well. I had a strong finance resume, so they asked me questions related to finance. I was able to answer them satisfactorily. It seemed more like a conversation rather than an interview, as if they were trying to figure out if I was a right fit for their company. Most of the time they were doing the talking and explaining about the IT role and what it involves, and asking me if that's what I was looking for. Almost all the questions they had for me were resume based.
    Interview Tips
    Be honest and upfront. Tell them what you think and most importantly why you're applying for the profile. The questions asked to me were: If you're offered a PPO after the internship will you accept it? ; This profile is not in line with what you've taken as your major, do you feel that you'll be wasting 4 years by suddenly switching your line? ; What problems do you think you'll face if you are to join Citi as a full time employee?

    These questions cannot be prepared for, you have to be honest in answering them. If you would have noticed their questions were leaning towards checking if I would be a right fit as their employee. Unlike other companies who hire 2 month interns just to get the maximum work out of them, Citi was hiring interns as possible employees and future leaders within the company, and their HR interview will be in this line as well.

    Funny Moments
    One of the questions asked in the interview was what I do in my free time. One of my answers was watching TV shows. They then proceeded to ask me what TV shows I watch and I mentioned Game of Thrones among my list (which was quite lenghty :p). Unsurprisingly, one of the interviewers was also a GoT fan and we spent quite a bit of time talking about the show and why neither of us hadn't read the books.

    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    30 Minutes
    No. of Questions
    22 questions
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Basic quantitative ability
    • Section 2: Math cases
    Interview Experience
    The quantitative part is relatively easy, it is for testing the speed and accuracy, there are two math cases given the exam but they were also comparatively easy based on probability and statistics
    Interview Tips
    In the math cases it is very important to analyse the result after solving it. that is what makes the difference because almost every one solves it
    Round 2

    Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell me about your education background
    • Question 2: Explain one of your internships or project
    • Question 3: Do you want to ask any question?
    Interview Experience
    The guy was one of the vice presidents in the firm. He seemed pretty cool.
    They will make you more comfortable and they want you answer the questions.
    Interview Tips
    Do not try to babble about all the courses that you have taken just brief him your specialization, projects and internships.

    Try to explain an intern or project related to the position and be sure about what you are explaining these guys are technically very sound.

    Try not to ask the bland questions like what are the opportunities at Citi , what is the vertical hierarchy in the firm. This is not an hr question and this is a trap. Ask him about the plunging profits or gains or what is citi's strategy to hold its position in certain countries. This will give him the impression that you did prepare for the interview.
    Round 3

    Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Estimate the number of atm in India
    • Question 2: Explain me about the internships followed by many questions
    Interview Experience
    This was a mix of stress +guesstimate+ technical interview.
    This round went so much longer than the first round. Some times they may ask an irrelevant question just to see how you react to it. In this round they have asked me everything about the projects and internships. As I told you they were technically sound they will track you up to every minute detail of the project. They have also asked many situation type questions. They have asked me about my high CGPA and why not a Ph.D.
    Interview Tips
    Try to be as much cool as possible in this interview do not show a blank face to the interviewers when they have asked something from your CV. In the situation type questions try to relate those situations to something on your CV and then tell them how you have solved it. And you must be a master of your CV you must be able to answer about a particular graph or result from your project even during sleep. they shoot a lot of questions at you and answer them as appropriately as you can. Be sure to know what your strengths and weakness are. do not try to disguise your weakness as a strength, they will find out that you are trying to fake, they have seen thousand of candidates like you.
    Round 4

    Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Why are you going for analytics though you have graduated from mining engineer.
    • Question 2: Why not Ph.d
    • Question 3: Why citi
    • Question 4: Do you need to ask me anything
    Interview Experience
    I had a friendly chat with the HR to begin with as he was asking about my surname and stuff. the interview went on for 15-20 mins of the phone. here you need to really explain about why you are interested in citi and why you are into analytics
    Interview Tips
    Follow the same tips mentioned in the third round.

    Resume Shortlist

    Interview Experience
    Resume Shortlist was not stringent to any cg cut off. I think a mixture of good POR's and course work along with atleast one coding work can be impressive.

    Interview Experience
    Each part have time constraint and you can only attempt the next question if you have done the present one. I have not performed that well in the coding questions but fairly well in the first half which put me to the interview round.

    Any one coding language can be preferred - C/C++/Java.
    Interview Tips
    Practice basic questions coding language, English, Aptitude/ Logical Reasoning and Writing Code in the precise order as it can boost your confidence through the test duration,

    It is okay if you excel in any one of the two parts.
    Round 3

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell me about yourself
    • Question 2: Some questions on your hobby
    • Question 3: A qustion on a project mentioned in the resume
    • Question 4: Why finance? Why IT in particualr? What are your future plans
    • Question 5: Do you like to ask me any questions?
    Interview Experience
    The HR was not very intimidating. I was very calm and presented myself confident and very cheerful which I think impressed him. I answered to the first question very elaborately that it covered most of the other possible questions. It's very crucial to answer it smartly without overselling or underselling yourself. I was being very honest.

    I answered in this manner:

    - My qualities and work ethics
    - What was my passion and what has led me to take interest in IT and finance?
    - Why Citicorp? - just a brief line as it wasn't asked directly
    - My hobbies and unique talent

    He asked what would you choose - finance or IT. Well it seemed tricky as IT work is related to finance in Citicorp. So I answered them that I have interest in Finance of which IT plays a part. So interested in both.

    When asked about my project, I answered clearly and related to the profile. No questions were asked further.

    After a set of these 4 questions, I was asked if I have some questions. Two questions were popped up in my mind about the proflle nature and the challenges faced by Citicorp macroeconomically.

    Interview Tips
    It is very important to answer clearly and articulately. Stammering gives a bad impression on you.
    Some tricky questions will be asked. It's alright to take some seconds off and asnwer with clear thought.
    Show enthusiasm towards the internship. They do not require students with good coding skills so show them that you can grasp anything fast.

    When asked about yourself, kindly don't tell the place you are from or your family descriptions as it is absolutely not required by them. They need to know your nature of work and abstract qualities you possess. That's it.



    Round 4

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Where are you from?
    • Question 2: Why do you choose chemical engineering? By rank or by passion?
    • Question 3: Why do you want to intern in Citicorp?
    • Question 4: Some more quesions based on your previous answers
    Interview Experience
    She didn't ask any tricky questions and mostly listened to what I had to say. She wanted to know how much interested I am in this,
    Interview Tips
    Be very relaxed and ask questions meaningfully.
    General Tips
    Java is not a pre-requisite to IT in Citicorp.
    Motivation for applying
    It is a reputed bank in financial sector. The stipend is relatively high compared to other companies.
    Funny Moments
    I got intimidated by a senior before the interview that I require Java knowledge. So I was very sure that I wouldn't get through. Hence I bacame very calm and took the interview entertainingly.



    During the interview, I told the HR that I know little of Java and was willing to learn it. In turn, he answered that it is not at all required. I was dumbstruck ;)

    Round 2

    Technical Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: A basic question on Bayes Theorem
    • Question 2: Few Complicated questions using Probablity which will be assisted by the interviewer as you interact with them
    • Question 3: Few Finance Questions
    Interview Experience
    The first round of interview was identifying your interest and testing it. I told I am good at Math and Fin and I was asked all probab and Fin questions. Many others were asked Guesstimates and Puzzles
    Interview Tips
    Be confident and keep talking and keep interacting, even when you are struggling- it's more about the ideas you put on the table than the answers. Be thorough in basics of probab including all kinds of distribution and all.
    Also the job is for analysing Credit Card usage. And it is a gloabla financial firm. So for questions like, "Tell about yourself" or "Walk me through the resume", keep telling how you are good at handling data. And if you have Fin background, pitch about it.
    Round 3

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Guesstimate to find number of Credit Cards in India
    • Question 2: Other questions asking you to convince them you are good for the job
    Interview Experience
    The interview was mostly a stress interview. They kept telling me that I am somehow not so good for the job and my knowledge in the field is insufficient. And I kept convincing them back that I am indeed a good candidate.
    Interview Tips
    Keep calm. Prepare HR questions perfectly. You should talk to them as if you are dying too get this job and detail it to them that you are the best candidate for this job. You have to tell them that you have some special capability that others don't (I told about my knowledge in Fin). And you should be really special in that and be able to answer anything.
    Round 4

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Simple questions like how serious are you about Citicorp and how bad you want the job
    Interview Experience

    Round 2

    Other Interview

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      It was a 20-minute one to one interview.
      It started with the normal question “Tell me about yourself”. I had done my internship in one of the analytics firms, so she was interested in my project. I explained the work and she seemed impressed.
      Round 3

      Other Interview

      Interview Questions

      A few puzzles like the one mentioned were also asked.
      Round 4

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Tell me about yourself which is not mentioned in your resume.
      • Question 2: Why Citigroup?
      Interview Experience
      This interview was also a 20-minute one to round.
      Another subsidiary of Citigroup had visited the campus the earlier day so she asked me if I had applied for it, I told her “No.” She asked “why ?” .. then I told her “I have my seniors at Citigroup and would love to work with them.” She seemed quite
      impressed. She took the names of the seniors. (So if you have seniors in a company who know you, you can always mention their names. It shows you have a keen interest towards the company).

      For the non Maths students there was a common question that, “If you were so interested in Maths (Analytics) why you didn’t choose Mathematics and Computing as your branch?”
      Round 5

      • Question 5: One trait you would like to improve upon
      • Question 6: Why not a PhD?
      Interview Experience
      It was a 30-minute panel interview. This was a puzzle cum HR interview where all my previous interviewers were present.
      Interview Tips
      From my experience I could feel they were for recruiting genuinely interested candidates, also recruiting someone who was good at problem solving.

        General Tips
        I would like to start this article by telling you something about your major concern, and that is “Will this economic crisis has a telling effect on your job prospects ?”. And the answer is both Yes and No. I am a 5th year Mathematics student and have closely seen the placements of 3 batches and from my experience, I can surely say that “One who prepares well , gets through, No matter how tough the situation is". It happened with my batch and your batch won’t be an exception (Unless a catastrophe happens).Dilemma: Most of you guys sitting for placement shall be in your 7th semester which is considered to be one of the most hectic of all the semesters. Many of you might be preparing for CAT, others for GRE, some of you would have got a tough guide for your final year project. So you need to prioritize things. You need to think it through; “A Realistic Self Analysis” always helps. I’ll share what I did. I did join coaching classes for CAT but my first priority always was placements and accordingly I planned and executed things. Getting a 99+ percentile and then clearing the GD and PI’s was too much of a risk for me to take. So this might be one of the better times to go for your MBA but always have other options ready just in case.Resume for Analytics Companies:Most of the analytics companies have a lot of Statistical Analysis and Data Management work. So, candidates having an experience in Data handling are preferred. If some project of yours involved Data Handling, mention it in detail. If you have done some of the applied Statistics courses in the Maths/IME department, mention it in your resume.

        Resume Shortlist

        Interview Experience
        I applied for a couple of companies before this and learnt from experience on how to write a resume highlighting your strengths.

        According to me, I feel writing a resume is like a sales pitch. You have to describe everything about you in a way that you catch the panel's attention all in one sheet of paper.

        My advice for everyone would be start making resumes as early as possible and ask seniors for feedback and keep upgrading your resume. You will get to know how to write an attractive resume for a particular profile through experience itself.
        Round 2

        HR Interview

        Interview Questions
        • Question 1: Tell me about yourself, what do you want to do in your life?
        • Question 2: Why do you want to join operations/finance sector being a civil engineer
        • Question 3: Where can you optimise in civil engineering
        • Question 4: What are the drawbacks of the traffic analysis done these days(civil engineering traffic analysis)
        • Question 5: Why do you want to join our company?
        Interview Experience
        My experience was extremely pleasant. HR was very friendly, even asked me to drink tea and coffee :)
        To be truthful, I was pretty nervous but it's not as scary as everyone think it is. HR's are generally friendly and will make you feel as comfortable as they can.

        Coming to the questions, I wasn't asked any technical questions and was mainly asked general questions. They just test your proficiency in speaking English and the confidence in your answers.
        Interview Tips
        My tips would be to be cool, be yourself, don't lie and boast(they will get to know of it)
        Be sure to know some history about the company and why you want to join it
        Be confident in your answers and you have to demonstrate a surity in your answers. i.e you have to have a explanation for every answer you give.

        Lastly be confident in your outlook as a whole

          Tried to asses interest in coding, company fit. Asked one java question. Why citicorp? Discussed about the financial crisis. Interview is flexible and can cover a broad range of topics.
          Interview Tips
          Stay calm. If you can convince them if you are interested in a career in coding. Note, the profile is not completely IT based, it covers a broader umbrella, involves much more was what I was told. The prerequisite knowledge they expected too wasn't very high.

            General Tips
            Citicorp was my fourth interview in the internship process. What i learnt collectively from this experience was to say calm, no matter what. Never approach an interview with an " I must get it " attitude. "Its not a big deal" works much better. This doesn't mean that you don't take preparation seriously but once you've prepared, don't care too much. Also prepare well, the biggest contributor to your confidence and satisfaction is the feeling of preparedness with which you attend the selection process
            Motivation for applying
            I was interested in non - core, finance, analytics and have basic coding skills. Citi is undoubtedly a reputed name.

            Case Study Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: Probability based optimization problem
            Interview Experience
            15 minutes given for an almost impossible to get an answer problem. Later asked to explain your solution. The approach matters much much more than the final answer.
            Interview Tips
            Be cool, think basics. Don't forget elementary things that units conversion, unitary methods, probability distributions etc. If while explaining, you realize you actually made a mistake while attempting the problem, acknowledge it and explain the correct approach from there on, rather than trying to disguise your mistake.

              Be thorough through the resume. Act smart and reply what they want to hear. It's okay to ask them for a few minutes in case you want to think before answering something rather than mumbling what comes to your mind first!
