Intern Interview

Intern
Palo Alto, CA

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – I do not really remember a lot of the questions, but almost everything I did iteratively had to be redone recursively and vice versa   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was kind of to good to have to negotiate anything

I applied online and 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.
