    First, I had a phone interview with the recruiter, with whom I talked about my research experience and expectations from the internship. Then, I had another phone interview with the manager, who briefed my over what the interview would be like and the kind of questions I can expect.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VMware (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    All day, multiple phases, but felt like it could end abruptly after each phase. Talked with an assortment of managers, and also a couple of senior engineers. I sat for 3 morning interviews, was taken to lunch (not sure if this is normal), and then sat for 3 afternoon interviews. Each interview was different. One person gave me a written programming test, another did a thought experiment, another asked me to whiteboard the solution to a programming challenge, another asked me to diagram the internals of an application framework.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe the internal mechanism involved in the Ruby implementation of enumerables. This seemed to be an off-the-cuff question, flowing from a discussion of various languages, and their strengths and weaknesses.   Answer Question

    Business Sales Development Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at VMware (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted based on my work experience. It was more of a informative interview where the role was discussed with me over phone by the hiring manager. It was to be a contract position where if I was successful there is a possibility of being hired on with VMware. I was then sent info I would need to do a mock sales call over the phone. The info they sent was ok but still very vague. The feedback they gave was that I was trying hard sell the customer. I was wondering if they heard a different call than mine. I thought I at the very least "tried" to ask the right questions. The whole process was just for us to transfer the customer to another rep whom i guess was the more knowledgable person who's job it was to close customer. Yet I was asked about pricing and policy. Anyway my point is that the feedback I received did not seem to match that of the actual call. I am left wondering what they really were after.
