Senior Manager, IT Interview

Senior Manager, IT

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at VMware.

Interview Details – Initial contact with vmware was very smooth and I could tell their processes were well thought out. After passing the interview, the offer portion of the conversation was a bit congested and their communications struggled a bit. Processing my offer was even a bit more difficult as I wasnt quite sure of my status right up until I had to turn in my 2 weeks to meet their expected start date. All in all the company made it well worth it and now as someone hiring into vmware I can tell they have ironed out all of my initial concerns.

Interview Question – What ground breaking technologies have you worked on and what were your biggest challenges in meeting goals.   Answer Question
