Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citrix Systems.

Interview Details

I applied online and received an email the following day from a recruiter! I was asked to participate in a timed online aptitude test. The questions were challenging but weren't too difficult, but it required you to really know you're stuff. I was asked detailed questions from networking to security, which I only had minimal knowledge about and I think that hurt my chances. Wished I could have been evaluated more than just on those 10 questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview first, talk to the chief of the socket programming and he referred me to another group. He think a Phd should be working in a R&D group. The 2nd phone interview is for a software engineer position. However, it was a position purely about programming in c. The interviewer has few feedback. I used c++ style while the interviewer corrected me with c style. It was a bit frustrate that the interview was not the position I was looking for.

A couple weeks later they invited me to their campus where I had multiple 1:1 discussions with more team members and management. A week later I got their reject letter.

    Interview Details

    The company had come for campus recruiting. I spoke to them and they called me for an interview the next day. The interview went well. They first asked me questions mainly based on my resume. However they asked me to code stuff in Jquery which was a bummer because i really had no time to go through Jquery.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Ask about how to revert a sentence. Such as "I am a software engineer" to "engineer software a am I". After this, the employer will ask you if there is duplication, can you remove the duplication such as "I am good, Is he good" to "good he is, am I". For intern, this is a very easy problem using stack to solve. For the second one, I used map<string, bool> to record if the word come before.

    Interview Questions
    • Prepare your environment to compile. It is better to prepare a file with all including or using and basic structure. I write the code on notebook, it takes me more time to compile the code rather than solving the problem.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    For the intern, if you receive the call for starting date and end date, just negotiate the salary, I did not negotiate for my intern which leads to a lower salary than other intern.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Only went to one round of interviews at the local ShareFile office. The environment is very casual and people are very friendly. I went through 4 interviews during the day.

    The first was with the Senior Product Manager, and the man who would be my boss. He just went through my resume and my Github account with me. He asked me some behavioral questions (tell me about yourself, what are your passions, strengths and weaknesses, etc.).

    The second interview was a general coding interview with two staff engineers. The questions were about the programming languages I've worked with. They also threw a programming question I had to code in C. After I was done, they asked me to debug it, which was great because I found an error in my answer;

    The third interview was with two more engineers but it was more about web concepts: http, RESTful interfaces, Ajax, Cloud development, etc.

    The final interview was with the Senior Manager again who just asked a brainteaser. Unfortunately I didn't get it.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was unexpected or difficult except for the brainteaser. It is long and I don't remember all the details, so I won't post it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation, since they offered far more than what I expected and the benefits were pretty good.
