Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citrix Systems (Gainesville, FL) in February 2015.

Interview

Met the interviewers at the career fair. The initial set of questions were based on the resume. Then the recruiter called me at the career fair that another interviewer wanted to speak with me. This was a formal interview where technical questions were asked. I was called for another round/ manager with the questions that were conceptual. Did not hear from them after that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.
