    Staff Engineer, VSAN Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I was reached by a recruiter, and transferred to another, then another ...

    Worst on-site interview ever. When chat with hiring manage at lunch, I was asked to give a brief intro. Then he realized that I'm not quite fit and asked if I wanted to cut.
    What? Didn't you ever see my resume before?

    Not worth to waste your time on vSAN team.

    You can image how bad it could be to work with these careless people.

    Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)).

    Interview

    From initial phone screen to on-site interview it took around two weeks. Feedback took another two weeks. Most of the on-site interview questions were on design and ReST. Pretty easy. They should never have inexperienced developer in their panel. And there was one. They ask silly core Java questions and reject any answer if they haven't heard about alternative answer. While couple of them seem uninterested in interviewing. No lunch was offered either. Not a good place for interviewing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Washington, DC (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The first round is a pre screening process where i was given a hackerRank link in which I had to solve 4 questions in 60 mins. The questions were pretty okay to do but the problem statement was very long.
    I was able to do 3 questions correctly and 1 with partial output. I got selected for the next round.

    Member of Technical Staff Cloud Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Bellevue, WA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I approached the recruiter through LinkedIn for Member of Technical Staff Cloud Services Intern position. Then was asked to fill a questionnaire and complete a HackerRank challenge which had 4 coding questions to be done in one hour. I gave perfect answers for all the 4 questions and passed the test. Then a one hour phone screen was setup. The interviewer was very friendly and I was asked to code a sparse search on codepair. I cleared the first round and second phone (last) screen was setup. The second interview was much easier. The interviewer asked about JAVA basics like hashcode of an object and 2 binary tree questions for inorder and level order traversal for which I was also asked to do complexity analysis. I gave O(n) solution using recursion for both. After 3 days got a mail from recruiter that they are going ahead with other candidate.

    Overall, it was a very positive experience. Both the interviewers and the recruiter were very friendly and supportive.

    As long as your basics are clear and you have good practice of data structures and algorithms, you should be good to go. Hope this helps :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware in March 2018.

    Interview

    HR call, senior consultant phone interview 1, senior consultant phone interview 2, and then video call by hiring manager. The HR call was to talk about the position (not actually an "interview"). The remaining three interviews questioned your personality and character. They want to hire really good people who will fit into the company culture. Definitely do your research on EPIC2 values and impress them with that. They are a great company looking for great people - be yourself and always be honest. They asked me if I was ready to lead a team, and I answered no, but the interviewer appreciated me for being honest.

    Director of Professional Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Sr. Director. The phone interview was 30 minutes but appeared to be a Q&A but nothing more than simple questions. The questions were basic. The interviewer was nice & a good communicator but lacked the ability to ascertain the information being conveyed to him and just repeated it verbatim as a filler. Senior Director level but he did not have the depth of experience in technical information to form a conclusion about anything. He was not very experienced technically.
