Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VMware in December 2014.

Interview

Absolutely no respect for my time. I was at their office multiple times in a 2 month period. After 13 rounds of interviews and tests with peers, managers, directors, Vps and hr they didn't even bother updating me on the status. After round 7 it started feeling like an overkill. Not sure why I wasted so much time. Maybe I believed that it was a great company to work for and the experience was worth it. Any employer that doesn't respect prospective employees can't obviously be great.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at VMware (Santa Clarita, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The initial HR contact was fine and the questionnaire about the application prior to the phone screening was pleasant and simple enough. However, when I spoke with the hiring manager: rather then focusing on administering the application in general, I was grilled on the specifics of a recent project that was a rather unusual configuration. As we got into it, I realized that giving away too many specifics might be violating the SLA my current company had with Perforce and at that point, I couldn't gracefully back-pedal out of his questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at VMware in November 2009.

    Interview

    My job position was terminated, and i was forced to look else where. A verygood friend of mine, reffered me to VMWare. And immediately i was asked to solve a programing problem via email communication.

    It took them a week to respond back to the solution. The response was positive and I was called in for an face to face interview. These communication was going on with the hiring manager and the actual scheduling was then done with the internal recuiter. The communication was clear and prompt.

    During the face to face interview, the schedule was changed, but nothing alrming. On the day of interview met 9 people, which included hiring manager, recuiter, technical staff, org director. The question ranged from real life experience to solving problems and providing multiple and efficient solution to the problem.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware in June 2009.

    Interview

    I received an email inquiring if I was still interested. I Replied yes.
    We set up a phone screen interview where I was asked some technical questions mostly about Linux command and Java questions. I passed the phone screen and was invited to another phone interview with an expert and was literally grilled on Windows and Linux for about 60 minutes. I passed this. Then I was invited to another on-site interview. This went fairly well.
