    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citrix Systems in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was one round of written test followed by 3 round of interview.
    Interview length varied from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.
    Written test was 1.5 hrs, objective programming contest and two programs.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing. They ask simple algorithm, data structure, Operating System and Programming questions. If you have prepared for your placements Interviews are not difficult. In fact the hiring process depends on their requirement, if they have lots of vacancies they will take you no matter what. ( I remember one friend of mine during our placements, who had below 7.5 CGPA, got rejected after first interview but he kept on insisting with the HR and interviewers, and they allowed him to go for the next rounds).   View Answer

    The company gave a presentation at our college and conducted a selection test consisting of Computer Science and Aptitude questions.

    Shortlisted students were taken for 3 rounds of technical interviews on Data Structures, Operating Systems, Programming and Networking.

    Each round had a list of shortlist.

    After 3 rounds of technical interview a HR round was taken.
