    Informal Interview - Good conversation, yet when it came to Salary it was a showstopping $55k + Super. This was well below my current salary to the point where I had to withdraw from the process.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at VMware.

    Interview Details

    I sent my resume in via a friend who worked for the company and was telephoned the next day. They wanted to set up a phone interview. I was called when we had set up our time and it was clear the interviewer was at home. As I could hear dogs barking. However I think that is part of the atmosphere at VMWare. Stay at home to work and laid back.

    She asked me if I was interested in the company and what my main goal was. General interview questions nothing hard. She then told me about the rest of the interview process which involved hypothetically selling coffee to a group of VMware employees and then a more on the spot sales presentation with some VMware managers.

    She said she would call me to schedule those interviews. I never received a follow up phone call.

    Interview Details

    Technical - on par with bay-area's best. Very technical / in-depth discussions / past experience is the key. Algorithms / Data Structures / Typical Computer Science essentials. Essentially hands on coding will go a very very long way, keep writing code to ace the interview.
