    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    After speaking to HR, I was set up for an interview. I didn't realize until getting there that the interview would consist of meeting with 3 managers and having lunch with people from the department. It was a full day event. The head manager of the supply chain management team went on for a while about the job emphasizing the late hours and lack of training. The other two managers who work under him were great to speak with. The lunch was ok but I'm not sure they were even warned. Then at the very end they tell me the position pays 20k less than I told HR I was looking for. HR told me that the head manager changed the pay mid interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Citrix Systems in April 2015.

    Interview

    Good process initially- I was contacted within about a week of sending in my resume. The recruiter was pleasant, and set my expectations appropriately. She set up a meeting with the hiring manager, which seemed to go well. After I talked with the manager, the recruiter called back to get my feedback, and I called her the following day and left a message. 2 days went by and she didn't return my call. I assumed she must have missed the voice mail, so I called and left another message. That was 3 weeks ago. Very poor experience. The lack of communication is completely unprofessional, and even worse when the market for talent is so tight. Even if I was a terrible fit (which I was not) some feedback was warranted. From my perspective, that recruiter's actions (or lack thereof) is a direct reflection of the company, and clearly they do not care about candidate experience.

    I was called by a recruiter asking if I was still interested in an internship. I was then asked for an availability. The hiring manager setup the meeting on a friday using the gotomeeting api. During the interview he asked me about why I chose front end development and then he started asking questions on http protocols which were very difficult and didnt expect for an internship position.
