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.

Maths Magic Riddle

I can prove why 1 = 2

Step1. Lets say y = x
Step2. Multiply through by x xy = x2
Step3. Subtract y2 from each side xy - y2 = x2 - y2
Step4. Factor each side y(x-y) = (x+y)(x-y)
Step5. Divide both sides by (x-y) y = x+y
Step6. Divide both sides by y y/y = x/y + y/y
Step7. And so... 1 = x/y + 1
Step8. Since x=y, x/y = 1 1 = 1 + 1
Step9. And so... 1 = 2

How is this possible ?
