    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VMware (New York, NY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. A little clumsy. Contacted by HR screener. Reasonable conversation. They went dark for two months before they called me back. Now that want to do the process yesterday. A little frustrating but ok. The actual interviews are fair and reasonable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process was in-depth, had to do presentation, show knowledge of company as well as industry. Additionally, previous success and territory knowledge was evaluated. The process starts with a recruiter, then phone interview and after that one-on-one meeting. I was called back twice to meet with other managers and peers.
