    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online through LinkedIn. Contacted roughly 2-3 weeks later for a phone interview- which had to be rescheduled the day of. First interview was very surface level- past experience, am I willing to travel, what are your hobbies, etc. After this interview I was contacted the same day for a video chat interview about a week later. This also had to be rescheduled the day of. This interview was only about 20 minutes, which seemed very short. They asked much more job specific questions such as: Have you had to work in a team and deal with conflict within your team structure? Name a time you had to multitask or contribute to multiple projects at once and describe how you dealt with it. Have you ever been a manager of a project or team?

    Interview Questions

    • Describing a time I multitasked or juggled multiple jobs/projects at once was difficult, because this was an entry level job and I did not have a ton of related experience.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter at a university job fair and was able to schedule a 1:1 interview for the next day. When I arrived, the interviewer was very nice and the interview itself was very relaxed. They asked basic questions about what I was studying and how I had come to choose my university and major.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citrix Systems in September 2014.

    Interview

    A series of individual and panel interviews. Interviewed with managers, senior managers, and design staff over a period of three months. Presented in-depth walkthroughs of several design projects and the customer outcomes. Spoke about user research, creative process, and feedback-based iterations. All interviews conducted via GoToMeeting, so a good internet connection, quiet surroundings, and webcam setup were important.

    Interview Questions

    • Speak about specific interaction design changes made to improve user experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    After the last interview, I received an email asking for my current salary and to give salary expectations for the new position. I responded and then waited two weeks to receive an offer. I ended up getting an offer higher than what I'd asked for, as well as a relocation bonus. I was very pleased and accepted it immediately.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citrix Systems in September 2014.

    Interview

    Slow, detailed professional process done right for the level of responsibility. Ten overall interviews, starting first with the Citrix recruiter, 5 interviews face to face then 4 more via telephone. I was shocked candidly, that Go-To-Meeting, their flag ship remote meeting tool was not used in any of the interviews.

    Interview

    Employee Referral, E-mailed, Interviewed 1:1, then brought in for panel interview with other IT Support reps. The process was very smooth and I got a lot of free food and drinks while waiting to be interviewed. If you're under 27, it's going to be really hard for you to fit in as the entire company looks like they are in their later 30s +
