I just scheduled my first round of interview for Citi's full time CB analyst, NYC. It will be 2 phone interviews, 30min each. Does anyone have any insight on what to expect? I am really hoping to land this position!

What I have heard:
- know financial statements and how they work together
- how to value the credit worthiness of a firm
- general fit questions
- why corporate banking
- market questions (what areas of the markets?)
- behavioral

Is there anything else you would recommend preparing for? I've heard sometimes they ask off the wall questions. Thanks!

Got to AC in London for the same role. The questions that threw me in the phone interviews were 'tell me about a time where you were put in a situation the challenged your ethics' and one about the benefits of diversity in the workplace/time you worked in a diverse team and how it helps them serve their clients.

May be different in NY but they seemed to be working off a list.

Thanks! I will begin working on good answers for similar questions. I am speaking with two analysts, one in consumer and one in industrials.

Did you get the offer?

Unfortunately not, the other candidates were lateralling from other BB's, veterans who legit served in the middle east and a CB intern from a different Citi office. Was amazed I even got that far tbh

What questions did they end up asking?

Feb 8, 2019

lots based on my previous experience: leadership roles, teams, environment, and then they also had me complete a case study and defend by position. Also, there was a technicals portion.
