Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2015.

Interview

I had a pretty engaging interview. I had 2 phone interviews but was later referred for another position. A quick call with the manager and then I had an onsite interview. Everything was pretty smooth(They took care of all logistics). Interview day was packed with interviews , but i guess it was pretty fun. Not grilling you , but just understanding what you know and how much you are ready to learn. Questions were pretty much straightforward-linked lists , mutex/semaphores , threading , memory allocations ( all was coding based).

Interview Questions

  • linked lists , mutex/semaphores , threading , memory allocations ( all was coding based).
    Mostly system level and network stuff.
    Do prepare well - coding books are definitely helpful.   Answer Question

Negotiation

They did pay me well . I dint have to probe them much. They did miss on the joining bonus , but eventually they did add it.
I was switching jobs, so make sure you do check for market averages and all.
