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

    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!

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions
    • 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.
