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

    4 Rounds: Online Coding challenge and 3 Onsite Interview

    Coding challenge was easy.
    On-site interviews were difficult. One of the interviewer made me feel very nervous. The interviewer expected perfect and most optimized answers. Second best answer and an idea of the best one does not work.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at VMware (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in career fair and got an online assessment in one week. The OA has 5 questions, you should finish in one hour. It is not very difficult but very time limited. Then I got an onsite interview. There were four rounds, and one of them is about system design. The other rounds consist of CS fundamentals, projects in resume and coding problems. I am not doing good in the system design part.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VMware (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    All day, multiple phases, but felt like it could end abruptly after each phase. Talked with an assortment of managers, and also a couple of senior engineers. I sat for 3 morning interviews, was taken to lunch (not sure if this is normal), and then sat for 3 afternoon interviews. Each interview was different. One person gave me a written programming test, another did a thought experiment, another asked me to whiteboard the solution to a programming challenge, another asked me to diagram the internals of an application framework.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe the internal mechanism involved in the Ruby implementation of enumerables. This seemed to be an off-the-cuff question, flowing from a discussion of various languages, and their strengths and weaknesses.   Answer Question
