I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VMware (Bangalore) in Jan 2021

Interview

Process consists of 4 rounds. I had 3 rounds with a gap of a week in each. After 3rd round I got a call from HR to ask my notice period. Since my notice period was 3 months, they ghosted me. At least HR should respond with yes or no whether I am selected, rejected or on hold. I dropped several emails to ask for an update, but there isn't any response. My experience with the recruitment process wasn't good.

Interview

This was one weird interview process. Never have I experienced an interview where they would ask about the syntax of a particular function. This was not a one off thing, this kept happening for for both the technical interviews. Basically you are not asked what problem you were trying to accomplish, no discussion about the overall picture, design methodology or processes.

Interview

I have interviewed with VMWARE in the past and my experience has been impeccable. At this moment I had a call schedule with the recruiter for the tanzu inside sales role. Our call was scheduled for a Wednesday, she changed it to Friday without telling me. Then Friday comes she says she is too busy and asked to reschedule it again. We reschedule it for Wednesday and Wednesday comes. She calls at 11am cst on the dot, I’m wrapping up my call. I ended my business call, called her back at 11:01am CST. NO ANSWER. Called back again, and nothing. Then she send an email saying we talked already and I asked if she will not interview me. Then she calls and raises her voice saying she’s too busy and they are prioritizing internal candidates instead. Does not apologize for her miscommunication. Does not interview me. Basically refuses to interview me since they all of a sudden are prioritizing internal candidates. The lesson here is, candidates are human, do not treat them like they’re disposable. Every candidate matters.
