Citrix FTE Interview Experience
Online Round: There were 2 coding questions of intermediate level and some mcqs of varying topics like arrays, trees, linked list, sorting, OS, OOPS, etc.
I do not remember the exact question but one of the coding questions involved the concept of fake palindromes in a string.
Round 1: This was mostly a project related round. The interviewer asked to explain any one of the projects listed in the resume in detail. Then he proceeded on to asking how I would implement a particular functionality, specified by him, in my project. It was a challenging round which required in depth knowledge of one’s project.
Then this round was followed by some questions on stacks like sorting elements using a stack( 1 or 2 stacks and their complexity).
