VMware Interview Process

I applied at VMware for the post of Senior QA Engineer through a recruiter and was interviewed at VMware. I faced a telephonic interview, and three face to face interviews. The hiring process took about two weeks in total.

Round 1 - Telephonic Interview
The first round was telephonic interview which was scheduled by the recruiter. The interview focused on the core java concepts. There were questions on serialization, cloneable concept and collections. The questions were good and some were even difficult for me.
Q1. What are marker interfaces?

Round 2 - Face to Face Interview
After I managed to clear the telephonic interview, my first face to face on-site interview was scheduled. This interview was also based on core java based questions and so, that can be marked as a pointer. There was a question on abstract static final and it was pretty tricky. I could not get to the solution right away but then the interviewer pointed me to the right direction. Questions on string object pool were also asked.

Round 3 - Second Face to Face Interview
This interview round was all about programs. The interviewer was quite thorough in the knowledge which made me shiver slightly at the moments. But otherwise, the interview was fine. Some questions that were asked in this round are:
Q1. Design a test automation framework.
Q2. Questions related with Binary Tree.
Q3. In an array, the sum of even numbers and odd numbers found in the array.

Round 4 - Third Face to Face Interview
This round combined everything into one. There were more java based questions. There were more programming based questions. Only, the intensity was even higher. Also, the interviewer was keen on getting everything in details which sort of put me under a little pressure. After all those questions, there were certain questions my resume as well and some behavior related questions.
Q1. Why do you need abstract functions when you have overloading?

How to crack(get into) VMware Interview

The first thing that you all need to keep in mind while being interviewed at VMware is that your interviewer will most probably be needing your answers in details and in depth. Therefore, try to come up with that expectation. I face this very problem but thankfully I understood the intention in time.

But you have an advantage as well, the interviewers at my time were really helpful. You can expect the same. But for them to be helpful, you should be able to appear making efforts which you can only do if you prepare well. Most of the questions were based on core java concepts and so you must pay attention at that.

Other than that, my best wishes with all the appearing candidates. Prepare well and they will like you for sure.

Thanks Anmol for sharing the details of your interview.

Interview Marble Logic Puzzle

You are given a set of scales and 12 marbles. The scales are of the old balance variety. That is, a small dish hangs from each end of a rod that is balanced in the middle. The device enables you to conclude either that the contents of the dishes weigh the same or that the dish that falls lower has heavier contents than the other.
The 12 marbles appear to be identical. In fact, 11 of them are identical, and one is of a different weight. Your task is to identify the unusual marble and discard it. You are allowed to use the scales three times if you wish, but no more.

Note that the unusual marble may be heavier or lighter than the others. You are asked to both identify it and determine whether it is heavy or light.

Now he asked his wife to divide the deck into two different piles which may not be equal but both of them should have equal number of cards facing up. There was no source of light in the room and the wife was unable to see the cards.

For a certain amount of time, she thought and then divided the cards in two piles. To the husband’s astonishment, both of the piles had equal number of cards facing up.
