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.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at VMware in November 2013.
Interview Details – Had a brief phone interview in regards to the responsibilities of the contract position and if I was interested. Of course I was, so the next day I was contacted by the department Manager to schedule an in-person interview. Met with the Manager and Supervisor for a one hour interview. Although I found the interview to be pretty difficult due to the types of questions asked, overall I thought it went well. The Manager and Supervisor were very friendly, knowledgeable, and explained exactly what they are looking for in their new hire. They spoke very positive and well about the company's environment and culture. I was happy to hear VMware is "here to stay" and the company finds it very important to provide their employees long term opportunities and growth.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at VMware in November 2013.
Interview Details – I applied on their website and two groups wanted to talk to me. After one phone screen, I decided one position didn't appeal to me and I told them as much. I had two phone screens, one with a hiring manager who talked about the position and basically asking the behavioral questions. The second phone screen was a coding interview with collaboration software. Once I cleared the phone screen, I was asked to visit their campus for on site interview. People were generally nice and helpful(I couldn't locate the office building, one of the employees actually walked me upto the building to show it). The onsite interview was smooth, clean and to the point. They were very courteous and polite. After the onsite interview, I was told that they will inform me about the decision. Since it was the week before thanksgiving, They didn't reach out to me till the next week when they told me that they are yet to make a decision. I was told that I am in strong contention and they were trying to decide between me and an internal candidate. Since I had another offer, I didn't persue this any further.
