Top 3 Skills (stack ranked) : 1) Citrix – XenApp, experience with large farms, enterprise experience, Ability To implement AND work with customers To design 2) VMware- experience implementing VMware 3) Ability To design with customers AND be hands-on
Interview Info (date, time, process, interviewers) : The interview will be a technical phone screen that will most likely be very situational AND cover the following topics: Fundamental Citrix questions (the weed out question) these are meant To identify right off the bat someone that does not live up To their resume. Examples of possible weed out questions may cover the integration OR layering of servers, the largest scale deployment they have done… That would be followed by a “kicker” question. This would be based on their answer To the “weed-out” question AND would dig in deeper To their citrix experience AND thought process for problem solving. An example would be the interviewer will give an example of a problem (this will most likely be an actual Mckesson situation but they won’t say that) AND ask the Candidate To walk them through how they would go about solving the problem. Again, the answer isn’t as important as the thought process behind how To get To a resolution. They will dig into specific Citrix systems such as 4.0 AND 5.0 AND try To figure out what they know AND have done with both. They may ask about Xen Server They might ask questions about: Console Presentation server deployments Dual farm deployments Publishing via web interface..published application versus published desktop A really good thing for them To point out would be a scenario where they faced a problem in a non-standard configuration AND how they overcame that. Also big topics of interest in this group right now are: Monitoring Packaging Applications for deployment. They won’t be doing the deployments but they will be supporting packaged applications. Again, please be ready To give actual situational examples AND be able To articulate the problem, environment, Actions they took To figure the problem out AND outcome of the actions.
Business Challenge Client is Tasked with Solving : When a customer, a hospital, chooses our cleint’s system AND for them To support it, this team works with them To implement the system AND support. This is a big area of growth because many hospitals do not have the IT staff To support these critical systems AND rely on this team To provide the best set up for them AND support going forward.
Project Stage/Lifecycle Info : On going implementations for customers
Technical Environment : Citrix, XenApp AND XenDesktop, Netscaler, VMware, ESX
Non-technical Skills (i.e., communication, problem solving, etc.): : Customer service skills AND communication-this is a client facing role over phone. Must be able To work under pressure AND be independent.
