Phone Interview with Technical Question: First the interviewer briefly introduced himself then asked me to do the same, then quickly jumped into the technical algorithm question with shared screen. The interviewer was polite and helpful, and was willing to give hints to solve the problem.

    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!

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very dull and not nice, and he kept asking me questions about ASP.NET while I told him that I don't have experience in ASP.NET and the job description didn't ask for it either. You would expect a company this big would be to the point.
