    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA) in September 2019.


    Contacted by recruiter online through Piazza, then went through a brief screening process. They sent an online coding assessment with 3 multiple choice questions (CS topics) and 3 coding problems. After getting through that, I was invited to their Atlanta location to undergo a series of interviews (4 total, each a mixture of technical and behavioral questions).

    Interview Questions
