    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Staines, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VMware (Staines, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    2 telephone interviews and 1 panel interview
    They have never even had the courtesy to call me back to say I did not get the role even though I have emailed and called this company on numerous occasions. I have been Ghosted.
    Their feedback was "I did not blow them out of the water " on the presentation but that they loved my first telephone interview.
    They said I could do the job but again no further communication from them - even now a whole month after the panel interview.
    Very disappointing experience and I feel if they treat potential candidates like this then I have definitely swerved a bullet working for this company.

    The internal recruitment person even looked on my linked in profile a few days ago - not sure why. It would have been nice for them just to say - thanks but no thanks.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you handle this job role ? (considering I had completed a similar job role for 9 years in another company this should have not even been asked).   1 Answer

    Technical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached by the recruiter who was prompt in scheduling the interviews. First round was a typical hacker rank coding challenge consisting of two basic algorithm problems and a few java related questions. Second phone screen with the interviewer was a horrible experience. Was asked a not too bad string related question. When I started stating my approach and the interviewer did not seem to care. Interviewer seemed impatient and kept cutting me off when I was working on the solution. He did not seem to know about time complexity of the question and when I corrected him, he ended up swearing during the interview. Very unprofessional experience and at this point I had enough and did not want to go any further. I am pretty sure that I do not want to work in my interviewer's team after his unprofessional behavior.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VMware in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn. The initial HR round was pretty good. Got selected for the first Phone Technical round. I felt the interview was okay. 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. I had a great time learning about the project that they were working on.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at VMware in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through referral and interviewed with VmWare. I was called in for a F2F interview to meet with the team, know more about the role and assess how my experience aligned with their expectations. The interview was conversational and went well.
    In the next few days, one of the interviewers (a man) messages me (a woman) on social media messenger app to start a series of conversations, followed by messaging me at 1 am in the night to which I did not reply. I chose not to answer to any of his conversations but lost my interest in the position and the company as I found this to be very alarming and unprofessional of any interviewer behaving in this manner.
    In addition to this, they took around 3 weeks to tell me that I wasn't a good fit and they are moving ahead with another candidate.

    NOTE: Please respect the interview candidate whose interview experience greatly affects how he/she perceives your company.
