    Director Product Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for me was quite long and thorough. I went through seven in-person interview sessions and ten phone sessions with key members of the field teams. Almost all the interviewers (except one) were polite and very respectful in their conversations. Questions were primarily related to my experience, industry knowledge and situation handling.

    The process was longer than I had expected, about 3.5 months from initial contact to job offer.

    Interview Questions
    • In the early part of the interview process I was asked whaget the position my 30/60/90 day plan would be if I get the position. At that point I was still exploring what exactly is expected from the position. I told them that I was exploring and understanding the responsibilities, once that is done I will put together the 30/60/90 day plan   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The offer was competitive and in line with my expectations. I asked for sign on bonus which they accepeted.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy process, four phone interviews before invited to onsite. Onsite was an all-day event meeting with 6-7 people. Nerve-wracking, but it was a good process because by the time I was through I got a good feel for the working environment, and was convinced this was where I wanted to be.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 phone interviews: the first being more a light technical interview with a few questions. The second phone interview was more technically intense an lasted about 45 minutes. The final step in the hiring process was attending a formal in person panel interview. This consisted of two escalation engineers and two department managers. The engineers focused on asking several scenario tech questions and various other technical fundamental questions. This was followed up by the 2 managers asking multiple questions related to working styles, work place interactions and attitudes, expectations and outcomes, and others. Overall it was a very intense interview process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Overall, pretty straightforward interview process. I had one phone interview just going over my resume, then I was brought in for an in-person interview. I met with 3 people for about 45 minutes each, all of them were very nice. Most of the questions were just behavioral, nothing technical. Then I came in for one more 20 minute interview with the VP of sales. Again, mostly behavioral questions.
