    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    This was an agile interview process. One of the recruiters connected with me on LinkedIn and explained about the team and what they have to offer and tried to see if I was interested.
    I expressed interest and had a call with her.

    The next step was an online coding challenge at HackerRank consisting of 5 problems that needed to be solved within 1 hour 45 minutes. I solved 3 of them completely and the 4th one was marginally correct with few test cases failing. I didn't have time for the last problem.

    After evaluating the team wanted to interview me at their office and invited me over. I was told that the interview will be agile and the feedback will be cumulative, with about 4 rounds. After each round of 45 minutes, the interviewer will discuss the feedback with other interviewers for about 15 minutes and they would take the decision whether to interview for the next round then and there.

    I had 3 rounds and was told that they thought the skils don't completely match after the 3rd round.
    The questions involved lots of coding on the whiteboard, the first two rounds were totally whiteboarding. In the 3rd round the discussion was around my experience and design.
