    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The most insulting process ever. Even with an internal referral from a Staff Solutions Engineer I got a random generated note within 8 hours saying sorry. No explanation. No way to get a hold of people. This was for Carbon Black. I have a great resume when it comes to EDR.

    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at VMware in August 2020.

    Interview

    Online assessment, it was difficult unless your saw the question before. Lots of guys research the previous questions so they can get the answer before the OA even started. It is not fair that the first process is not an efficient way to filter out the candidates.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Boston, MA (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Interview process was a bit chaotic and disjointed. Received an email from HR saying they were moving on with other candidates and then a few days later an email from the hiring mgr to say that they would like to have me talk to other folks. The right hand didn't seem to know what the left hand was doing.

    Senior Test Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at VMware in June 2020.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me through Linkedin and said the Hiring Manager wants to talk to me. The recruiter was prompt in arranging calls and rescheduling it due to HM's schedule. It was a video call and I was well dressed up and was expecting atleast professional attire from the HM for the call. The call started well by introduction from me and the job role and responsibilities discussion.
    He asked few problems which their team is facing in their automation project and how I would take the approach to solve it. I did gave my approach in details, but it seems he did not like the approach.
    The most negative point was his family members moving around in front of the camera during the call and looking at me in the camera. It was so embarrassing and distracting for me.
    The HM was constantly getting distracted from the interview and was chatting or replying to mails.
    The interviewer needs to understand that if we are taking out our valuable time for the interview , then the interviewer also needs to respect our time.
    Did not accept this from a top company like VMWare. Hope they take a note of it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at VMware (San Diego, CA (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Week 1: Application submission via employee referral
    Week 2: Recruiter email asking to speak with me and recruiter phone screening
    Week 3: Zoom interview with hiring manager
    Week 4: Zoom interviews with 3 team members
    Week 6: Offer received

    Overall, the recruiters and interviewers were extremely professional. The recruiters were prompt in their responses and made sure to keep me in the loop with the process. One thing that struck me about the interviewers was that they all genuinely appeared to be happy employees. It's rare to speak with people who can endlessly list the reasons why they love working for their company.
