    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citrix (Detroit, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    30 minutes quick interview. Basically looking to feel out what you know and what you don't know. I would say it was more of an introduction than an actual interview. Interviewer was looking for what my skills were and whether or not I met the basic criteria for the job. After which, he told me, if I was ready for it, there would be a second interview. (I didn't perform well and lacked a few skills that were necessary for the job)

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Citrix (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was a coding test on GoToMeeting. You have the option of using a virtual environment provided by citrix, or using your own environment and sharing your desktop. I highly recommend assuming the environment provided by them will be completely unusable and using your machine. I had unbelievable latency and there was a 10 second lag time for each mouse click or key press, making it impossible to use their environment. In the end I wasted 30 of the 90 minutes allotted for the test getting my environment set up. I finally gave up and used my own environment and shared my desktop to complete the exercise.

    The onsite interview took 6 hours, There were 4 interviews, including a lunch interview. Everyone I interviewed with was very professional and helpful, and I felt that I did well. I left feeling cautiously optimistic. I was told they would probably take the next week for feedback and should contact me during the following week.

    However, I was never contacted with the results of the interview and after a month I'm sure they ended up going with someone else. That they would have someone use a vacation day to spend in onsite interviews and never even bother to follow up is unbelievable to me. In almost 20 years in the industry I don't believe I have ever experienced such a lack of professionalism, and I certainly did not expect it from a company the size of Citrix. I assumed that maybe I just fell through the cracks but reading the feedback here I see that seems to be their SOP. Truly lamentable that they would treat their candidates so shabbily and with complete disregard for their time. They could have sent me a one line email to the effect of "We regret to inform you that we have decided to go with another candidate for the position you recently interviewed for" and I would have been satisfied. Instead I spend 3 weeks checking my phone for missed emails or voicemails.

    I honestly had a positive experience and felt like everyone that I interacted with was extremely professional. If they had given me the expected feedback in a timely manner this would have been a positive interview experience, even without the offer. Obviously there is always a chance of not getting hired when you interview, but not being given the decision in a timely manner is unconscionable.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing they asked was unexpected. Be prepared to answer in depth questions about your language of choice (C# in my case). Be up to date with recent developments of the language. Especially parallel, async, multi threading, what goes on behind the scenes with yield / return and async / await, etc... Standard stuff. Be prepared to write code on the whiteboard for standard problem solving questions, and expect the standard questions about operational complexity and data structures / algorithims.   Answer Question

    Service Desk Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Citrix (Miami, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The Interviews process is very slow and no one knew what was going on I was contacted by three different internal recruiters weeks apart. After months of waiting and three interview nothing happened. Waste of time, but I guess it was a blessing. I wouldn't want to work for such a disorganized company anyway.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask lots of server and network question to gauge your knowledge on both. Pretty basic stuff that gradually becomes more difficult.   Answer Question
