Software QA Engineer Interview

Software QA Engineer

Interviewed at VMware

Interview Details – Recruiter found me at linkedin and give an initial phone interview asking about some overview questions, which went well. Then arranged a phone interview with a engineer. The questions are not difficult, but in details. For example tcpdump command, constructor of derived class in python and so on... I used them in previous project, but cannot remember the details. So failed quickly.

Interview Question – Tcpdump command, what the constructor of derived class in python look like, some other Linux commands   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Software QA Engineer Interview

Software QA Engineer
Palo Alto, CA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at VMware in May 2012.

Interview Details – Telephonic round followed by writing a code for the Chess game. Then an onsite interview consisting of 5 rounds (in which they asked wide variety of questions including stack implementation and core java questions). They are mostly interested in multi-threading, so if you can answer questions on that then you are good. 4 rounds were good interviewers helped when i was stuck. 5th one was not so great the interviewer laughed when i could not answer a question. While leaving i asked if i could use your restroom at this he replied offcourse i know you need that now. Good luck with the managers!

Software QA Engineer Interview

Software QA Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at VMware.

Interview Details – It went through smoothly. One round telephonic was technical. This was followed by two rounds of technical F2F discussions. Finally, there was a managerial round. The technical interviews went well - mostly expected questions. Some programs to be written (Binary tree traversal, linked list, string matching). Unix internals. But, it took a couple of months to get the offer letter in hand - after I was confirmed selected.

Interview Question – Not difficult but a little unexpected. I was asked to design a chess game software. What data structures I would use was asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate; was satisfied with the offer.
