Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at VMware in May 2014.

Interview Details

Recruiter contacted me, went through phone screen, phone interview, and in person interview.

The recruiting process was somewhat jumbled - I was put in touch with 3 different recruiters, one of who forgot to tell me that my phone interview was scheduled. Otherwise, everyone was pretty good with response time.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at VMware in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was long and pretty much a nightmare. I only ever had to interview once and it was a pretty intense interview, but getting in touch with the right people afterwards was challenging. You can tell there is a bit of a lack of communication between the different groups at vmware.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at VMware in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Some one from their HR called me up 3 times at least to schedule an interview time. I was partially flattered but I also noted that they were inefficient.

    This was followed by just a normal phone interview with some problem solving activity. The interviewer was polite and the interview went off well.
