    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Citrix Systems in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Had 5 rounds interviewed by Senior members of the team including a manager and HR round.
    All rounds were fairly simple. Questions revolved around operating systems. Things like files systems, basic OS concepts. One round consisted of questions from chapters from the book Gilberschatz, Galvin, Gagne: Operating System Concepts almost in an identical order. Questions about testing, testing models were asked in detail. It was not very technical, it was more of how much you could answer and how u answer questions.
