Network Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Citrix Systems (Atlanta, GA) in July 2011.

Interview

After having like 3 phone calls taking up my lunch hours for those 3 days spread over 3 weeks I was asked to go into the office for an in person interview. This interview took way too long. I was late for an appointment and my phone kept ringing. I tried to explain that I did not plan for the interview to take that long and they asked if I wanted to reschedule. I asked how much longer it would take and they said not much longer... another hour later it ended. They should have informed me that the interview would take 2.5 hours and I would have scheduled accordingly. I don't see why an interview would take that long unless you were not very good at assessing a potential candidate.
