    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VMware in October 2019.

    Web Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter online through Piazza, then went through a brief screening process. They sent an online coding assessment with 3 multiple choice questions (CS topics) and 3 coding problems. After getting through that, I was invited to their Atlanta location to undergo a series of interviews (4 total, each a mixture of technical and behavioral questions).

    I applied online. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    Applied for new grad software engineer role.
    Finish OA.
    Got invited to onsite.
    Rejected.
    Now the fun part. The flight ticket they bought me was invalid! I bought a new one myself and asked them to reimburse. They said yes and then disappeared! Iooped in a university recruiter, then the coordinator suddenly replies to me again. But she is still not reimbursing it for me. She didn't say no but she won't do it. After 6 months, I sent a email with very angry tone, and looped in another hr, and they finally reimbursed! Such mot**er fu**ers! I've also seen people on blind complaining about VMWare not reimbursing expense. Stay the **** away from VMWare if you are not desperate to get a job!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Online hackerrank interview first, then 4 45 min interviews onsite. There was a lot of sitting around with other candidates, one of the interviewers seemed stressed out. I should have prepared for anything other than operating systems questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    1) Coding Assessment - 90 minutes to finish 2 coding questions and 3 multiple choice questions. Pretty standard and fair algorithms and data structures concepts tested.

    2) Onsite Hiring event - 4 rounds of 45 minute interviews with various VMWare engineers. Each round contains trivia questions about OS concepts and 2 white board questions. It was very technical heavy so make sure you know OOP, algorithms and data structures, operating systems, and your projects on your resume in detail.

    Unlike other technical interviews, the interviewer does not help you when you are struggling with the problems, so make sure you explain your process well.

    Got a verbal offer 2 business days after and a written offer 2 weeks after.

    Process Excellence Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at VMware (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Was directly called for f2f interview, no screening was done on the phone. On reaching, interviewers themselves were confused as so which time slot I was supposed to be in. One of them even asked me if I was late, the other apologized since an earlier candidate had come in late.

    The first round went well where I was explained about the role and asked questions about my fit. The second interviewer kept interrupting every answer I was giving and felt like he was hurrying through the entire process. Overall a very demotivating experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VMware in August 2019.

    Interview

    Either they have no idea what to ask to filter a candidate they are looking for or they are training a new interviewer at the expense of the jobseekers.

    Their questions are entry-level questions. You can easily succeed in the first draft.

    I did not expect this from VMWare. I have been in IT for a few years and I had a respect for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. SQL- given two tables [Person] and [Address]. Find every person's first name, last name, and address. It is a left join question.
      2- Reverse a string - (asked him if I can use StringBuilder and he is not happy, so I used the iteration method)   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Extremely unprofessional and careless. HR called for scheduling interview and she was sounding bit rude and was in a hurry. However, the 1st technical round went really well, Answered & executed all the questions & programs except for 1.

    Waited 2 weeks for the update but no reply from HR, then dropped an Email to verify and came to know that I was not selected for the 2nd round and they are looking for some strong programming background. I asked the HR to recheck with the team again as all my programs were executed correctly and in the correct approach but she didn't reply.

    This was really shocking for me. Upon further investigating, I came to know that they don't save the interview details and it's entirely up to the interviewer to decide. So now I have no way to ask them to go back and check my codes.

    I wonder how can a big company have such weak interview process? How can a single person without the code review with the team or manager decide when all the programs executed are correct?

    This was a terrible experience for me.
