    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me regarding an opportunity with NSX team and asked me to complete a Hackerrank online assessment. There were tight deadlines to complete the assessment. 2 days later, the recruiter told me that I am invited to a hiring event that's happening over a couple of days. There is no option to reschedule the interview, whatever the reason may be and however genuine your reason may be. On the day of the on-site interview, all the candidates are taken to a room initially and get the introduction of the team, it's members and the interview process. The other candidates may/may not be of the same experience level as you. They said that they are hiring for multiple positions, but I am not sure if the experience factor comes in place while judging because it is the same set of people who interview everyone. I had 3 rounds of interviews onsite. 2 of them were nice, friendly and helpful. The last round interviewer was very rude and was easily getting annoyed at little things like an unclear curly brace in the code. It is demotivating when the interviewer looks pissed off and speaks louder than usual showing his frustration.

I was asked to code in my preferred language and was also asked about my projects on resume. It was about 45 mins call but got extended for another 15mins.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Colorado Springs, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initially, there will be online coding test on Hackerrrank. After the coding test, one or two phone interviews based on your team and business unit. Once you cleared phone screening, there will be 4-5 onsite interviews. I had 4 onsite interviews and 2 phone interviews. Overall, it was a good experience. Interviewers are friendly and try to keep you calm as much as possible.

    Interview

    telephonic interview was called for 45 minutes. I really suck in programming. Question was simple
    but could not complete in time although I completed the brute force method but interviewer was asking for an improved solution and I could not provide that. I really need to catch up on my programming for these type of interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I was referred for the position by a friend. The phone screen went well and the hiring manager invited me to visit them onsite. The recruitment team worked with me to confirm a date and made arrangements for my stay and travel.

    Had 6 45 minute technical interviews which included white boarding algorithm and coding questions. Lunch interview was with the hiring manager, and I talked to the group's director later in the day. Interviews with the hiring manager and the director were mostly behavioral and were focused on getting to know me. All the interviewers were professional and friendly.

    The recruiter contacted me within a couple of days to let me know that the feedback had been positive. The recruiter later confirmed that the team was intending to make me an offer which I accepted. They worked with me on the joining date and other logistics from there on.

    Interview Questions

    • Know your coding and algorithms very well. Questions are fairly language independent. Technical questions are challenging but can be solved in the 45 minute slots. The interviewers are friendly and will help you if you are stuck somewhere. Be honest when you answer behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Got a good offer right off the bat. Didn't negotiate much.
