    Procurement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Citrix Systems in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume direct from company website. Received call from recruiter a few days later and scheduled gotomeeting (video) with Hiring Mgr. Interview lasted one hour. Interviewer used resume as guide. Started with asking that I give a 5 minute summary of my career.

    Interviewer seemed nervous, unsure of himself, and did not demonstrate a full understanding of the complexity of the position. His body language revealed insecurity especially as I went into more detail providing examples comparing Citrix license terms with their competitors license terms.

    When I asked about the CEO leaving and the recent layoffs and the effect on the department, did not get an answer. Numerous red flags.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the questions related to C++ seemed hard as I had not worked much in C++. It was related to predicting output of a given program which had multiple classes defined and static downcasting was used.   Answer Question

    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.
