    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sofia (Bulgaria)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VMware (Sofia (Bulgaria)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took nearly the whole day. I was supposed to meet 4 interviewers in particular order, but they couldn't manage to follow the order.
    I was given a pc with eclipse IDE to write some program for a fixed amount of time. The complexity wasn't huge, but the time wasn't really enough to produce a full scale solution.

    Then couple of guys started asking me questions trying as hard as possible to find what I didn't know ... of course there would be things I don't know ... I'm not a book after all...
    The guys came up with a WRONG concept too, but they were the examiners, so I couldn't really argue with them pointing out that their opinion was wrong.
    The team manager had some ideas about managing people and organizing work, but I wouldn't say he was the best of class..
    And then the HR department wasted another hour of my time to talk gibberish...

    Software Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sofia (Bulgaria)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Sofia (Bulgaria)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I got in contact with VMWare through a recruiter and it was a very pleasant experience. Initially I received an e-mail with a problem that I had to resolve in under 1h. That went well (solved it in linear time) then the official interview began by having VMWare to setup the context via a phone call. Then we scheduled a face-2-face technical interview which spanned across 5 - 6h and 5 sessions.
     - First session was basic algorithmic (received a simple problem) + talks on complexity (big oh), data structures and algorithms
    - Second session was some language specific & platform specific knowledge (C#/.NET) check where we discussed on how things work under the hood
    - Third session was another algorithmic talk with a bit more complex problem that also involved parallel processing
    - Forth session was about behvaioral skills (it was a customer facing role-play) + Software design & architecture
    - Fifth session was about internal VMWare projects, culture and so on.
    The interviewing crew were highly professional, and problem solving with them face 2 face was a pleasant experience. I had to write fully functional code on white-board and notepad++

    They approached me by mail. After I sent my resume and had an interview with an HR person there was an phone interview. It was for general software development knowledge and lasted 1h. After I was approved they send me an small development assignment to develop in 3-5 days. After they were satisfied with my implementation of the task they asked me what was the most convenient time for me to go for an face to face interview. The last interview were actually 3 different interviews in one day. Each one of this interviews lasted 1,5h and was with different persons. 3-5 days after the last stage they offered me a concrete job. Finally with my signed permission they started a process of background check.
