    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at VMware in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Overall, I had a very good experience. Everybody was very forthright and kept appointments. Every person that I talked to was very professional and quick to answer any question that I had. The technical interview was rough and may have been a bit of a blow to my ego, but the interviewer was great.

    Interview Questions
    • In the technical interview, I literally felt like I tanked. There were some simple questions at the beginning but that just seemed to bring on bigger guns. The interviewer was very friendly but I think that just made it feel surreal. In the end I was not able to answer questions that I thought I knew the answer to because I was getting more nervous with every question.   Answer Question

    interviewed at VMware in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was quick and sweet. Talked to Recruiter he loved me because I was able to relate to multi taksing through my sports background of playing Tight End in Football. I had 5 phone interviews then 1 on site interview with the Director and it was money. Literally Sales Operations Deal Desk is a growing space and they recognized my competency of working at Cisco in various roles.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at VMware.

    Interview Details

    One interview with HR staffer to determine fit, followed by phone interview with hiring manager. Phone interview was challenging - very focused on SDLC knowledge and experience. Third interview was follow-up in person with member of development team - mostly just a conversation and follow-up questions from my internship. Really nice guy.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at VMware in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is similar to other large companies. You can start with a job posting, or more likely and helpful, is that you will be led to an opening by someone you know. The HR department also works considerably with recruiters. From there the process will vary by who is hiring you. Our interviews involved phone screening to see if it's worth continued conversations, and from there go to a long (all day) interview with many people. For our positions, this involved a significant amount of time doing technical presentations.
