    Got a call through the college career fair. There was an interview the very next day. It was a half an hour interview where they asked basic questions about java and python and resume. Cleared that round. The next round was a phone interview for 45 minutes. They again asked the basic questions followed by puzzle question and also some operating systems questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Citrix Systems in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were two telephonic interview- one was 15 min screening round and other was 1 hr long interview with 2 senior software engineers. All questions aimed to test the basic concepts and foundations related to Operating Systems and Networking. In the second round I was also asked some programming language specific questions in C and C++.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the questions related to C++ seemed hard as I had not worked much in C++. It was related to predicting output of a given program which had multiple classes defined and static downcasting was used.   Answer Question

    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.

    Got a mail from the HR to interview with the Engineering Head for a Spring Internship position. The interview ended in 2 minutes as the interviewer said that the position was for Summer Internship and it would be best to not waste both our time. All my preparation was a waste.

    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.
