Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in March 2014.

Interview

One phone interview and then onsite. The people are very friendly and the interview process is very smooth. The recruiters contact you promptly and are willing to discuss anything with respect to the company and interview process. The interviewers were friendly and were ready to help if you get stuck with any of the questions.

Interview Questions

  • Communication round is detailed review of resume with behavioral questions.

    Technical round had questions about networks, problem solving like how to send a message in a box if the the sender and receiver both have different locks and keys (public key encryption), if there is a bulb in a room and 4 switches outside, how will you know which switch is connected to the bulb by entering the room only once.   4 Answers

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through on campus career fair, Airwatch reps were present and took my resume.
    Then they scheduled an interview for me on campus itself in career services. It was a 30 min interview with technical consultant. He asked me general questions on school projects, internship experiences and asked me one super easy logical question which he was expecting would take up final 10 minutes but I got with it quickly and he told me what to expect in next round, so it was a nice hint that I have been selected for second round.

    For second round they flew me to their Atlanta office and gave a tour of company, we went around it and then were taken to a conference room where we were shown a presentation on the company and videos. After that we were taken by interviewers to smaller rooms for interview. There were 2 hour long interviews, one was technical round where we were asked software and internet and logical questions. We were also asked to solve a given piece of code to check that competence . Second round was communications round where we were asked general behavioral questions.

    like about a time where we lead a team and related stuff. Then they asked to suggest features they should
    put in a software app suite at a school, what it would do and what its effects would be etc. \

    Heard back from them in under a week and got the good news.

    Interview

    I went through the college recruiting process-- I met recruiters at a career fair and was invited to interview in a 2 week time frame. The interview was some behavioral and then a few questions about what the company does-- just to see if you've done your research.

    Interview Questions

    • Logic question-- I wouldn't say this was unexpected but I don't think the recruiter liked the way I answered the question so she had to tell me in the end what the "right" answer was.   1 Answer
