I applied through other source and interviewed at VMware.
Interview Details – Had short 10-15m phone screen, interview the next day with manager, team member and Associate on cross functional team. Lots of construction going on. Huuuge campus, wear comfortable shoes, and get there early, parking may be problematic, and no public transportation there YET, but I hear they're working on it. Generally hiring everyone as contractors for 1 YEAR- not direct hire, even if you know someone, seems to be where public tech co's are going. Interiors are very barebones, no frills. Cafeteria has good food though a bit pricey. Lots of changes going on as they keep buying companies, so everything's in constant flux. People seemed chill and nice, very personable, dress code was casual so dress one level above. Lots of hiring going on, but delays in decision making process bc HR process not very streamlined. another round of interviews awaits me.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at VMware in December 2013.
Interview Details – There were 4 rounds of interviews totally. The first one being aptitude followed by 2 technical rounds and 1 Final HR interview. There were eliminations in each and every round. The aptitude had 30 questions of which 15 were mathematical and statistics solving with logics. The other 15 were english and vocabulary with time limit of 1 hour. The aptitude was pretty difficult.
The technical rounds was average. They majorly focus on your resume and projects completed during the graduation. They test your confidence and level of pressure. A few technical questions and candidates way of approaching a problem. Situational questions and other general questions like why VMware and what is your plan in the next few years. What is your expectation from the company.
HR round was all about the candidate. Hobbies, interests and character.
But the candidate cannot make out clearly as what they were looking and what is good and best.
