    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying online, I was contacted by a recruiter who directed me to their online technical screen. This is not for the faint of heart! The questions on the technical screen span a lot of area and you are expected to know names and processes directly from memory (no googling allowed). Do your homework before embarking on this mission.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at VMware (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was very smooth. I applied through a recruiter. She managed the interviews slots pretty quickly and that too at my convenience. The interviewers were very not pushing much. The questions were kind of too deep into kernel. I suppose they were supposed to be as that is what they were specifically looking for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    The interview process at VMWare is arduous but thorough. For me, it was a total of 9 individual interviews...some in person at the office and others over the phone with key stakeholders. They asked me many questions about my experience off of my resume, but also some situational questions pertinent to the job I was applying for at the time. I talked with everyone from Individual contributors to managers to Directors and VP's before the approval was given to hire.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at VMware (Broomfield, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Process started out with a recruiter reaching out and providing a link to technical quiz. These are pretty tough and require some decent experience to answer the questions in a timely fashion. After passing that I had to wait for several weeks before another recruiter reached out to setup an onsite interview.

    The Onsite interview was pretty rough. My panel was 3 engineers who asked questions to get grasp of depth of knowledge. That was followed up by a managerial interview to see if you socially a right fit.
