I was applying for a contract position and had a screening call with a tech specialist. It was going OK but not great. After 15 minutes the hiring manager joined the call and gave me a 5 minute overview of the position. It was a very good fit and I asked 3 questions of the manager and we discussed the role. It ended up with the question of when can you start? I said Monday but the background and drug test took 2 more weeks.

Very thorough, plus just be honest with everyone, after each time the recruiter looked into my past criminal record, past employment, and my past credit check, I received a phone call. I was upfront and honest on application and before we even got started, so no one was wasting their time. I believe every applicant is a case by case basis and a firm believer in experience, education, skills, and personality meaning so much more. Plus every time I received a phone call regarding my past, I explained that I have or am currently working towards resolving the issue. Most importantly, I learned from my choices in the past and make better choices today, and I am a better person, and different person for the learning experience.

To start with, I had an impromptu phone interview on a Tuesday. At the end, she scheduled me for a second interview that Thursday. It was short and sweet. Very relaxed. By the following Tuesday, I got an offer.

I work for Citi and interviewed for several internal positions. Interviews will vary depending on department. Generally you will talk to a recruiter then interview with the manager and often a senior peer. If they like you, you will interview with the hiring managers manager. If you get that far, you have a very good chance because that person only interviews the top candidates. It can take up to 8-12 weeks for them to make an offer. There is a lot of moving parts involved In The process there.

It was very relaxing. The in person interview lasted literally 22 minutes. It was very easy. She asked me questions from a packet and wrote my answers down. There were no curve balls. Every question was easy to answer because if you've held a few jobs, at some point you ran into the situations she presented.
