    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at VMware (Bangalore) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process went for about more than 2 1/2 months with 6 rounds & A PPT presentation...if you have abundance of patient..and you are willing to wait... Be prepared for Last minute surprises..like interview getting cancelled..after your reach the premises..

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic project Questions. but also the trick is..Be prepared for Onsite Interview. Since he/she may not understand..how or what you do...as a project manager..they expect some different approach like lean...agile practices...that they expect you to implement in that project...like i said most of the indian companies..we only adopt what the organisation expect out of us...   1 Answer

    Interview was tough. Highly technical. They gave lot of time to think. It was more then 5 rounds but not bit cool. They don't pressurize on a question, Simply change it if you are stuck.

    Interview Questions

    • Even though you answer all the questions , there is no guarantee that you get the offer. So wait till you hear from HR. HR does not revert till you ask them for the result.   Answer Question
    • - The interviewer was not well prepared to take the interview. Though the answer to the questions were right the interviewer was pestering me for other solutions and he was satisfied only when it matched his expectation. This was not a good experience.   Answer Question
