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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was supposed to be a 30 minute interview but the interviewer finished in 15. Then he told me that the software consulting position is really technical support for at least one year answering phones to learn about the product. He saw from my resume that I was looking for a true consulting opportunity and that it wasnt a god fit.

    Software Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at VMware (Austin, TX (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through University career services to get the interview. The on-campus interview was relatively standard for a technical position. The interview was weighted very highly to technical questions and did not give much opportunity to describe yourself as an individual. The lack of personality from the interviewer made it a pretty uncomfortable environment. One caveat- the other two AirWatch individuals that I had met at the career fair in the first place were much more amiable and outgoing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Definitely more technical than behavioral. Very focused on mobile software interest and how you approach problems. The interviewer and I happened to have very similar academic narratives in that our interest in information software grew as college went on, even though we were industrial engineers. It was very easy going and that contributed a lot to that.
