    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    Three to four technical rounds. Depends on the team recruiting you. Interviews are conducted again if you join another team as full time employee. Focus on OS Concepts, Algorithms and Data Structures. Practice on HackerRank and Leetcode.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    The company sent a dear john note 6 months after I applied and reached out via LinkedIN. Completely pathetic and lazy. I had a friend who went through 7 interviews and then was declined the job, as they hired someone from within. Incredibly unprofessional and disrespective to say at least.

    Interview

    Phone and onsite interview. The on-site interview was focused more on vision of the company than product knowledge. Watch the Pat key-note address and you’ll have the background. They were not looking for specific product categories or product names

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at VMware (San Jose, CA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Initial recruiter call -- poorly organized next Technical interview call , she had it set up 15min late without my consent (corporate recruiter but acting like a contractor recruiter who just wants to setup an interview to get the bonus)
    Technical online questions and what I be done before
    Onsite , first he thought I was referred but he found out he had got the wrong profile

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter to set up a prelim screening over the phone, then moved on to a phone interview with a hiring manager. The final interview was 3, 1hour interviews with hiring managers.

    Overall a very positive experience. Will Thompson, the recruiter I worked with was fantastic. He was thorough, very professional and prompt in his communication. His timeline and expectations for the process unfolded just as stated in our initial call.

    Principal UX Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Long and drawn out process. VMWare recruiter reached out to me. From start to finish it was almost a 4 month process, and in the end they never got back to me to tell me the result. Extremely unprofessional from start to finish, and completely uncoordinated recruiting team. They never sent me a single job description and said they were looking for "multiple roles" for me. I would not have accepted a position here even if they did reach back out for an offer. The culture here seems nonexistent. They have a directive to hire designers, but have no idea what they are looking for. I would avoid VMware. Go to a company that cares to hire talent.

    Microsoft Software Development Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Miami, FL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    By speaking to a recruiter at a career fair, I was able to bypass a phone screening and get an in-person Interview. The interview started late and I was given less than 30 minutes to talk about myself and then solve a coding problem. The problem wasn't difficult, but I would state that I did feel a little rushed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Worst recruiters I've ever experienced. A recruiter based in Australia reached out to me for a Bay Area role. I told her I was interested and didn't hear back until I emailed her again to touch base. She then wanted to book a coding interview the DAY AFTER I had emailed her. Was extremely unflexible about it. I took the phone interview. About a week later they emailed me saying I passed and would hear from another recruiter about onsite. Eventually did hear from a recruiter (Canada based this time), who proceeded to send me 4 emails about my onsite schedule (she would email me every time it changed). Would have preferred they settle it internally and send me the final schedule rather than daily updates but ok. In all of these updates, she never bothered to tell me which VMWare office I would be interviewing at until I asked if it would be in SF or Palo Alto.

    When my onsite finally happened, I arrived 15 min early as they requested of me. My interviewer was late. He decided to start the interview while walking me to the building where my interview would happen. Weird but fine. When it came time for questions in my first 3 interviews, all of my job specific questions were responded with "Wait until your hiring manager interview to ask that".

    I was scheduled to have a half hour break after the first two interviews but my third interviewer came in and said he was ready to interview me now. I asked for 10 minutes and he said ok. By the time I got back to the room he was already there waiting to start.

    When my hiring manager interview finally came. Another person walked in and said the hiring manager was unable to make it. When I tried to ask this person the questions that had been pushed to the hiring manager portion, he said I should have asked one of the previous interviewers these questions as he didn't know the answers because is from another team!
