    Senior Manager Salesforce Practice Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews, then an all-day (5 hours) on-site interview with 9 people. At the end of the all-day interview I was told I'd hear within a couple of weeks. Over a month later I received an ambiguous email stating I should look at their job board for other opportunities. I've heard Citrix is still going through more layoffs, and not getting funding for open FTE positions. Doesn't look promising at Citrix.

    Interview Questions

    • "How to" questions. Every person "interviewing" me explained to me they have not been successful managing Salesforce projects, the backlog (defects & enhancements), change management and governance, etc... because the business refuses to adhere to best practices and their existing Salesforce implementation has so much technical debt that they really need to start over. They can't start over because the new CEO is from Microsoft and he wants to tear out Salesforce and replace it with Dynamics (he assumes the tool will solve all their problems). The leadership can't get the different business silos (Geo's) aligned so they all want a different solution. Citrix needs/wants to transition to Lightning even though they have a high level of customization and large number of custom fields on objects that will make going to Lightning beyond challenging. Basically they need to do a complete re-design. They also want to deploy Territory Management and a couple of other large scale initiatives without have a standardized business model nor resources to do the work. Their Security & Sharing model is completely open, but they want to restrict viewing records (like Oppty) records within teams...and they don't want to redo their Security & Sharing model. Nearly 10 years of technical debt and they want everything done in 2018...with limited resources available because the few resources that are available are KTLO.   1 Answer

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citrix (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online for a different position, but received an email from HR asking if I was interested in a Director position. I agreed, and set up a time for a phone interview. The HR person never called at the agreed upon time. I sent email to inquire what happened, and HR said she got busy (no apology) and rescheduled for a different day. On the second attempt for the phone interview, the HR person said (before asking me one question) that they were looking for someone with more experience, and that I would not be considered. All of that is fine, but why invite me to apply & then set up an interview, only to tell me I'm not qualified? It made no sense at all & was a waste of everyone's time.
