    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citrix (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. When recruiter called me for the position I told that i have experience on Objective C and COCOA.I told clearly that i don't have any experience on C or C++. Recruiter told me that there will be no issue and they are primarily looking for Objective C and COCOA.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citrix (Bengaluru) in Jan 2017. First round was Telephonic round and interviewer asked me questions on Basic Objective C and Cocoa. Interviewer asked me about my knowledge on C++ and i said i don't have any experience on it.

    Overall interview experience was good.

    The next day i got a mail from the recruiter saying that they cannot proceed further as i don't have knowledge on C++. So, i was rejected. I don't know why they scheduled interview if they don't want a person who don't have knowledge on C++.

    If any one is applying please make sure that you have knowledge on C and C++

    Senior Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix (Bengaluru (India)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1. Phone screen happened from panel
    2. 1:1 happened (3 hours) , 5 in panel
    3. telephonic happened (initially was to happen from US, waited for more than a week and then happened from India finally)
    4. Director's round happened

    I was given very positive hope after 1:1 and was looking forward to join them soon, i was asked how soon can i join n all and i told them immediately available.Hiring manager showed signs about final approval too (usually happens after the offer but looks like he was too optimistic)

    All rounds happened quite well and every face showed me hope at the end of it. I am pretty not sure what happened at last, i did not hear from the team and kept waiting, finally called up to know that someone else taken my place in the short list. How could that happen when someone is asking for HR round schedules and all and this had happened.

    I heard a lot about Citrix but never thought that this is how the candidature is handled after final discussions n all. I am really heart broken now and kind of low.

    At the end, i came to know that they were looking for senior role (but they knew it from the start i feel), so feedback is very vague and i feel its a political decision taken in this matter. I am kind of bait used here with all those high hopes and lies(feedback loops).

    May be this is a kind of new experience for me looking at such pathetic candidature handling.

For that the interviewer said that I need to brush up some more on Storage and servers ...

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citrix (Bengaluru (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone screens followed by F2F in House discussion. Took a long time to complete the process after this, even though i am not sure if it completed for sure. Had to do followups for getting response from HR. Once i was told that i was being dropped because of frequent job switches (which was pretty evident from my CV) and then again got a call month later saying i was not dropped but put on hold by the same person.

    Still had to wait for another two weeks after which i decided to write a detailed account and dropping out from the candidature (this is reason because of which i don't know if i was dropped by them or because i pulled out :) )

    Interview

    Initial two technical rounds were conducted as part of screening. First one was telephonic and second was video-G.T.M. for online coding.

So later i had one more technical round with the Director which was telephonic.
    Then i had one video-G.T.M. with HR-Manager. After that one more G.T.M. with HR, but that was a verbal discussion about the package offered which i accepted without any negotiation as the offered package was great and does not require any negotiation. After one week i received an offer letter.
