    DSE (Kernel) 10+ Years of Exp Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at VMware in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial short Phone discussion with a manager followed by a technical telephonic interview by the panel (sometime in May this year).
    Post that I was invited for a day long tiring F2F interviews. I had 5 rounds of interviews (including Manager Discussion as concluding round) on this day of F2F ( in total 6 rounds). I was informed by the hiring manager that I would be kept posted about the progress.
    I even followed up with the coordinating HR, but didn't get any response from him (I took it as a very discourteous and unprofessional - Candidates, if they are spending whole of their day time, definitely would expect feedback from coordinators.

    Further, again I got a call from the same Coordinating HR - He informed me that my "Resume is shortlisted for the telephonic interview" for the same position for which I was already interviewed earlier. I reminded him that I am already interviewed and he is supposed to give me the feedback of my past interaction. I received the standard answer that he will get back to me. I am though not been informed till this day.

    It's really funny and completely unprofessional from the HR side - otherwise it was a good experience from interviewers side as they were very cooperative & courteous.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at VMware in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was role focused and organisation fit focused rather than a memory dump. The interviewers were able to judge candidate ROI by asking questions which were requirement concentric rather than stretching an interview with questions that really don't matter. The interviewers were really friendly and displayed company culture of work life balance throughout the process. A good experience compared to other companies.

    Interview Questions
    • SDLC life cycle and every aspect of requirements gathering , types of testing and stakeholder management. The questions were more around the resume and based on experience in the resume rather than out of the blue ones.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Once you are selected for Vmware , they make a very generous offer that there would be no need to negotiate. The work culture is on par with google. The people in the organisation are talented and very humble. The company has a start up culture where every employee is treated like a family. Overall an amazing place to work for hands down.

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at VMware in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually very considerate and they tried to finish all the rounds in a day.

    1. Written test - The only issue I found here (and some other companies as well) is they make you write using a pen and paper!! I think when you interview for a technology company, you must provide the interviewee with a computer. It saves paper and frankly, it had been so long since I wrote, it took forever!

    2. Interview with senior members of the team - I think the girls who interviewed me wanted me to think like how their company works. I could only tell them how *I* work in my current situation. They were very critical and tried to make me get defensive which I did not appreciate.

    3. Interview with the hiring manager - I liked talking to the manager who was more forthcoming with what he expected from the role and the plans the company & he had for the team as well.

    Overall, everyone was extremely courteous and from the background I received of the team, it was a huge team and the growth opportunities were abundant, which was one of the main reasons I was looking for a change.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at VMware.

    Interview Details

    It went through smoothly. One round telephonic was technical. This was followed by two rounds of technical F2F discussions. Finally, there was a managerial round. The technical interviews went well - mostly expected questions. Some programs to be written (Binary tree traversal, linked list, string matching). Unix internals. But, it took a couple of months to get the offer letter in hand - after I was confirmed selected.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult but a little unexpected. I was asked to design a chess game software. What data structures I would use was asked.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate; was satisfied with the offer.
