    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at VMware in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Two Phone interviews followed by detailed technical interview in person. The interview was typical of top technical companies. Unlike google or facebook who dwell only on CS fundamentals, here they also go in depth on domain knowledge. Some focused primarily on coding questions. Many interviews were focused on what I have done and if I could provide details of my current work and broader picture of technologies used.

    Interview Questions
    • Details about exactly how storage systems worked at protocol level
      Many coding questions and solve problems on paper/board
