I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2015.
I had like 5 Interviews in total, different topics, from technical to management skills, how to create good customer relations, troubleshooting methodology, and past experiences, presentation skills, management skills and procedures, rational thinking. Glassdoor helped me to get on track on this path easily

I applied online. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Raleigh, NC) in June 2015.
By far one of the best and most fun interview I've ever had. I felt super comfortable with everyone who spoke AND they gave everyone free lunch
- They asked where I wanted to see myself in 1 year into the company. Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2015.
First interviewed with HR/Recruiter then HIring Manger. Worst experience ever interviewing with a company. Would suggest candidates seriously consider how badly they need a job before accepting an offer. At the end, rude and disrespectful. HR follow up non-existent. They dont care...if they don't care why would the other employees you might be working with. My suggestion: look elsewhere.
- Work style, go through resume Answer Question
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2015.
I was contacted by an internal recruiter about 5 days after I submitted my resume. The initial phone screen lasted about 15 minutes, long enough to verify all of the must haves. The first interview was also conducted over the phone. About 3 days after the first interview I was invited to interview in person about a week later. The process was very easy and straight forward.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Raleigh, NC).
Applied online with a referral from an acquaintance. Contacted by phone 2 weeks later for brief (10 minutes) interview. Invited for in-person interview at Citrix Office. 5 hour interview included a tour, Q & A with a few different employees, sitting in on a few sales calls, making cold calls for about 30 minutes and interviews with 2 managers. It was a long day!
- How does this job fit in with your career goals? Answer Question
Helpful (3)No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Citrix Systems in April 2015.
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.
- Standard questions about my background Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Citrix Systems in April 2015.
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.
- What is an etag in http? Answer Question
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.
The first round of interview was scheduled with a senior manager of the project. He asked me about my background, projects i have worked on, etc. Post that he asked a few high level questions and said there will be another technical round of interview for the same. This was for internship in front end development.
- how do you handle exceptions ? what is the difference between view state and session state? How would you optimize your html code Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.
Interview went for 2 months almost. Very Very Slow process. After giving 5 rounds of Telephonic/goto meeting rounds I was asked to come for Onsite. They asked me to take a Technical Written Test after 4 rounds and rejected me saying my skill set was a mismatch for the Job Requirement. I mean it took them 7-8 rounds and 2 months to figure that out. They could have just asked me for a written test at the start of the interview process. it was complete waste of time for me and every one involved Very Bad Experience.
- Questions mostly on Algorithm. Answer Question
- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Raleigh, NC) in April 2015.
They are looking for someone who can be in the top 10% of sales. Obviously, most people who get the job won't achieve that goal but everything is geared toward enthusiasm and a desire to put in extra effort. Even if you won't do that, stress that you will in the interview.
