I interviewed at VMware (Singapore)

Interview

The role is based in Singapore. Twice the recruiter scheduled an interview via zoom. First time I received a message 3 hours before saying I am not feeling well we will reschedule. It was rescheduled and I am right now waiting on zoom for 15 min and the recruiter is NO SHOW. Dropped her an email but no response. Really is this how VMware operates.....wasting candidate time.

Interview

I interviewed for a senior engineering manager role at VMWare. The panel (a staff engineer) was not prepared and could not articulate the questions correctly. There were random questions and no interest to explore the skills in detail. They are interested to note down what is being said (no eye contact) rather than having a proper conversation (very irritating). They seem like having a target of rejecting 99 people and taking the one who comes at 100); the interview panel member was not able to answer a question asked to him towards the end of the interview..

Interview

The process was fairly standard and took place over about 3 weeks. Everything took place online (e.g. email, Zoom, etc.) because of the pandemic. My first interview was a screening with an HR representative. Once I passed my screening, I had an interview with the hiring manager, which went well and led to further interviews with a designer on the team, a product owner, and a product manager. Every person I talked to in the process was very knowledgeable and friendly. Ultimately, they went with another candidate but the process was enjoyable and I'd definitely consider taking a position there in the future if I received an offer.
