    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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. The process might take too long, be ready for that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at VMware (Cork (Ireland)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    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. Also as its a customer facing role expect plenty of softskill questions too, such as how to deal with irrate customers and how best to deliver bad news.

    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.
