    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    I had a very bad experience with VMWare recruiters, twice...and both the times it was the same unpleasant experience. They contacted me to interview for a position and I gave them few slots for tech screens. Then they told me that they are not hiring any more and the email was full of spelling errors. The whole experience seemed very unprofessional.

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter, and talked for about one hour. The recruiter then arranged a technical phone screen with the hiring manager. The technical screening consists of some c++/ood questions and some coding questions. We use the online shared session for the coding. Couple daysa after the screening I was informed that offer has went out to other candidates

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    CRAZY company.
    Both my phone interview and team interview went well and they informed my about the "next step" which will be a second round interview. Next, after 3 weeks later, I just got a short email stating that the team has re-accessed that position and not willing to move forward with me!!!
    My question then why did you talk about "next step" ???

    It is not that I am out of job or begging a job from them - but some professional communication is rare there.
    It is a bureaucratic company who got some cash in their hands - but lacks of decent, bare minimum professionalism.

    Interview

    Was contacted by VMware recruiter regarding a hiring event. First step was a phone conversation with a recruiter then a online test. The test was a programming assignment done online within a time limit of 90 mins. The code takes input and your code outputs data. It was challenging but I passed it. Then onsite where I had 4, 1hr interviews. Typical programming questions. All interviewers were very friendly and professional.
