    They would hold four rounds onsite mostly in open area. In each round, there would be one-on-one interview with probably a manager of each team that is hiring. They either ask you to write on paper or whiteboard. You will discuss about your projects.

    I asked an employee to refer me, first I got an OA to finish.
    The oa is quite hard, but I got the onsite chance.
    The onsite questions are all from leetcode, and all hard questions, you should prepare a lot for that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    this is the simplest interview I ever been too....but the real problem is not the interview but the HR's.
    I interviewed twice in a month with different teams (NSBU and NSX) in Vmware, dammm simple interviews...but after the interview HR told me that they will revert back to me within a week, one HR even said after the interview that the team really like you and they want you onboard...but after that they never contacted me, I had tried sending them reminder email but no reply....VMware have horrible HR's....I would not recommend this company to anyone.....I don't care how busy there life is but its basic courtesy to reply...I hope vmware teach them basic "Human Resource" management, since they lack it horribly
