b- asked about keyword "with" in python. then about context-manager, type, python-class, try-catch-exception, indentation, self, how to access parent method from sub-class obj, multiple inheritance etc.
Gave a puzzle to solve in which I have to sort the values based on previous state values. Interviewer question was wrong in assuming sorting won't be in in-place but my sorting was in in-place. Here he was little unhappy. But, he mentioned that he told hr to fix next round. And then I didn't recieve any call.
Interviewer were helpful at all stage.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citrix Systems in September 2011.

Interview Details – I interacted with a few employees and understood the poor technical abilities of them. If we keep apart the technical side of it, interviewers could not even properly communicate in English. I don’t know how they are chosen to take interviews and represent the organisation with such skills. By looking at them, I could feel the system. A few days after I came to know that the finanical part is decided by US office and this procedure takes couple of months to complete. I could feel the money crunch and started monitoring the situation. At last, after couple of months I heard the outcome. Once again reminded me about the money crisis. But politically they avoided all causes and cited a different reason for the outcome. I have not seen such unethical behavior in recent past. At the end, I feel its not worth applying to this organisation.
