    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VMware (Pune (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had given lot many interview in my career, But I had the worst experience with the experienced panelist. All junior level employee asked good questions and shown interest while taking interview, but senior staff showed their attitude even in interview. (No interest , looking here and there , laughing on answers, very much unprofessional ).

    In interview No Pen, No marker Nothing.

    I've Given 7 Round total 5 Technical 2 Manager

    Recruiter asked to come at 10. I've reached at 10 AM sharp and need to wait for 1 hour, no one was aware that there is interview scheduled for me.

    same day I've given 5 rounds till 6:30 PM (Two more round on another day), No lunch arrangement from VMWARE and even I had to pay 100/- for parking. :p

    Not a single question asked on networking and I got the feedback that my networking knowledge is not much strong so they are going with other candidate

    Overall frustrating experience.

    Note: There was not a single questions which I was not able to answer I was very well prepared.

    1. Puzzle of Wrong label (Manager will ask this, he asked this questions to everyone)
    2. Crossing River with equal number of flower and offer the same number in three temple (Puzzle)
    3. Search the Node in linked list.
    4. Change to upper case (each word of sentence)
    5. Add one day in given (dd,mm,yy)
    6. Find the element in dict of dict
    7.Get the value from config file like. Server1:IP and Server2: IP etc. get the value of each server of create Dict
    8. Magic function in Python.
    9. Lambda, map, filter, yield.
    10. Divide rectangle in minimum number of square. (I've done but he was interested with recursion method) two people asked same question.
    11. Api Testing (One api return child of given parents and we have set of parents) how will you test this, also test that any child does not returning parent.
    12. Who decides that build is not ready for test.

    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VMware (Pune (India)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1. A coding test on HackerRank. It had about 5 multiple choice questions on Java, database, security. @ coding questions for 100 and 50 marks.

    2. Called for face to face next week. Gave two rounds. I could answer the questions. The interviewers seemed satisfied with the answers. But were concerned that I don't posses the skills they wanted (Spring, Hibernate). I asked a lot of questions about the company, and they patiently answered. The questions were good, but not very difficult. Overall I was happy with the technical rounds.

    After the 2 rounds, the HR called me to tell me that since I don't possess the skills they are looking for, they have kept my profile on hold.

    Following things disappointed me:

    1. I had mentioned beforehand that I do not have much experience in Java, leave alone Spring/Hibernate. These are not mentioned on my CV either (But told them that I can learn any skill if required). If these skills were a must have for them, they shouldn't have shortlisted my profile.

    2. The HR person did not even show his face. I was escorted to the interview room by the security guy. After the technical rounds, the HR person called me to tell that I can leave, despite being in the same office. That was really disrespectful. I took a leave from my office to appear for the interview on a weekday, and the HR guy can't even meet in person? And mind you, I have 10 years of experience. I don't know how they would handle freshers.
