I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Citrix Systems in October 2009.

Interview Details – Two telephone interviews followed by 4-hour onsite interviews. Typical interivew questions were asked. A 30 minute skills test was given but I felt more time should have been allocated. I don't know how much weight the skills test was given as compared to the interviews.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Citrix Systems in September 2010.

Interview Details – The interviewers were nice guys who were looking for a specific set of skills mainly in OS and C basics. Each interview was around 25-35 minutes encompassing puzzles to basic data structure questions. All in all a fairly challenging experience.
