    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email the following day from a recruiter! I was asked to participate in a timed online aptitude test. The questions were challenging but weren't too difficult, but it required you to really know you're stuff. I was asked detailed questions from networking to security, which I only had minimal knowledge about and I think that hurt my chances. Wished I could have been evaluated more than just on those 10 questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    Long process (2.5 months) and seven interviews (peers, HR, dept team) with no clear direction on the goals of the interviews except everyone had to weigh in. Hard to move process along and determine where or when the process would end. One interview was via video conference where the interviewer spent much of the time IMing with someone else. Hiring manager wanted someone that would be make decisions but would not make one. Finally took an offer from another company because of the run around.

    Associate Corporate Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    Process took about 3 weeks, and I had an employee referral so I was able to skip the mixer which is usually the second step after passing the phone interview. Phone interview is a scrrening process, it was impersonal and took less than 20 mins. I felt awful after the phone interview because of the recruiters demeanor. Regardless, I was asked back for a face to face, which I believe is step 3 of 4 before an offer can be made. The interview took half of a day including a walking tour of the grounds, quick orientation with the ShareFile product, an opportunity to generate leads, two interviews with sales managers, a question and answer session with two current sales reps, followed by lunch. I felt extatic afterwards due to everyones warm and receptive nature, my qualifications in comparison to the rest of the group I was with, and the assumptive language they use when talking to you about what it WILL be like when you work there. I did not get an offer and was left feeling very confused.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most wasted 75 minutes of my life. When you apply for a specific job on company website you would expect somebody from this team would talk to you first. In my case I thought it was Java development position. It seems like company got randomly assigned screeners who read questions covering vast area of topics from the script. 75 percent of questions were about networking protocols, troubleshooting why system is running slow. Later I got actually chance to talk about programming a little. At this point I was mostly thinking how to end this farce quickly, but apparently interviewer got instructions to go to the end of his list. I got some multithreading, object oriented design and unit testing questions. If it was systems engineer or devops interview it would probably make sense. Even if I have a chance to go to the next round I am not sure I am interested anymore.
