    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VMware (Cork (Ireland)) in November 2016.

    First stage - phone screen. All other stages - interviews with senior recruiters from multiple locations (done by phone). Most of interviewers are friendly and asking specific competency based questions (e.g.sources for finding new candidates). Last stage - personal interview in the office.

    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VMware (Cork (Ireland)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was on skype.

    They were 2 during the interview : Engineer and the Manager.

    The engineer was very kind, helpful and make you confortable. However the manager was very disrespectful. He told me I'm bad in IT and probably the same thing in my current work. He told me, I can go in another IT company to get more experience like Netgear.

    About the interview, I had 10 questions in each IT domains : Network, Linux, NAS, and virtualization.

    It's the worst interview I never had, and I will never apply again for this company.

    The interview was very intense, you can expect some complex questions based on technical scenarios and a "what would you do next?" question set in order to gauge your troubleshooting skills and methodology.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at VMware (Cork (Ireland)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through VMware Recruitment and had a phone and a face to face interview.
    It was for an entry level position and the only requirement was basic knowledge of servers, networks, and storage. No minimum level of experience required. Job description not reflecting the actual job. Ridiculous phone interview. Recruiter distracted and unable to provide relevant information on the job. I was also placed on hold for minutes during the call. Face to face interview scheduled for the day after.
    Interview with an escalation engineer and a manager. "The interview is divided into three parts Windows, Linux, and databases." It turned out that they were looking for experienced technical support engineers to join a specific team within the organisation.
    Total waste of time. Unprofessional recruiters. Poor communication. I followed up with the recruiter to provide feedback and enquire and never heard back. I know I am not the only one candidate who had to go through such a painful interview process.
