Interview

Recruiter found me at linkedin and give an initial phone interview asking about some overview questions, which went well. Then arranged a phone interview with a engineer. The questions are not difficult, but in details. For example tcpdump command, constructor of derived class in python and so on... I used them in previous project, but cannot remember the details. So failed quickly.

Interview Questions

  • Tcpdump command, what the constructor of derived class in python look like, some other Linux commands   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Telephonic round followed by writing a code for the Chess game. Then an onsite interview consisting of 5 rounds (in which they asked wide variety of questions including stack implementation and core java questions). They are mostly interested in multi-threading, so if you can answer questions on that then you are good. 4 rounds were good interviewers helped when i was stuck. 5th one was not so great the interviewer laughed when i could not answer a question. While leaving i asked if i could use your restroom at this he replied offcourse i know you need that now. Good luck with the managers!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VMware (Pune (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had given lot many interview in my career, But I had the worst experience with the experienced panelist. All junior level employee asked good questions and shown interest while taking interview, but senior staff showed their attitude even in interview. (No interest , looking here and there , laughing on answers, very much unprofessional ).

    In interview No Pen, No marker Nothing.

    I've Given 7 Round total 5 Technical 2 Manager

    Recruiter asked to come at 10. I've reached at 10 AM sharp and need to wait for 1 hour, no one was aware that there is interview scheduled for me.

    same day I've given 5 rounds till 6:30 PM (Two more round on another day), No lunch arrangement from VMWARE and even I had to pay 100/- for parking. :p

    Not a single question asked on networking and I got the feedback that my networking knowledge is not much strong so they are going with other candidate

    Overall frustrating experience.

    Note: There was not a single questions which I was not able to answer I was very well prepared.

    1. Puzzle of Wrong label (Manager will ask this, he asked this questions to everyone)
    2. Crossing River with equal number of flower and offer the same number in three temple (Puzzle)
    3. Search the Node in linked list.
    4. Change to upper case (each word of sentence)
    5. Add one day in given (dd,mm,yy)
    6. Find the element in dict of dict
    7.Get the value from config file like. Server1:IP and Server2: IP etc. get the value of each server of create Dict
    8. Magic function in Python.
    9. Lambda, map, filter, yield.
    10. Divide rectangle in minimum number of square. (I've done but he was interested with recursion method) two people asked same question.
    11. Api Testing (One api return child of given parents and we have set of parents) how will you test this, also test that any child does not returning parent.
    12. Who decides that build is not ready for test.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VMware (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    It went through smoothly. One round telephonic was technical. This was followed by two rounds of technical F2F discussions. Finally, there was a managerial round. The technical interviews went well - mostly expected questions. Some programs to be written (Binary tree traversal, linked list, string matching). Unix internals. But, it took a couple of months to get the offer letter in hand - after I was confirmed selected.

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult but a little unexpected. I was asked to design a chess game software. What data structures I would use was asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate; was satisfied with the offer.
