Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

Interview

There were multiple interviews, one over the phone, then 3 in person in one day. I spoke with my direct supervisor, another manager of a similar group, and the technical lead of the section. During the second interview, they asked me to perform a sales pitch for their product.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at VMware in February 2009.

    Interview

    After I cleared the in-house recruiter, I was sent via email a two-page questionnaire (probably ten questions in all) designed to probe both my technical and sales background - good questions, and it took me a full afternoon to address each one. Once completed this was sent, along with my resume, to the hiring manager, with whom I spoke via phone a few days later. I definitely got the impression he had only reviewed the questionnaire and not my resume. The hiring manager only had a handful of questions for me, so most of my allotted hour was used by me asking him questions - perhaps he had made up his mind already.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VMware (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. Screening phone interview, asking about the marketing, sales experience, including how much of face time I had over the years. Interviewer focused a lot on teamwork and strong full throttle approach on revenue generating in the ME region. There were a couple of questions on how I would have approached new sales accounts, certain scenarios were tested by the interviewer. My overall perception of the firm was fairly positive
