    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at McAfee in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Caveat: This is one of the bizarre interviews I have had so far.
    It was a very straight fwd process. Whole process took just a day. A written exam to start off, not a tough one at all. After screening, we were announced timings for the first round. The initial round was by an HR. He did not have any technical background for sure, so, he just asked two questions on basic math(apti/set theory, whatever you want to call it) and then the round was over. Looked like short-listed people would be called for the next round, interestingly none of the candidates were shortly. I was shocked, but, then it happens.

    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at McAfee in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I've submitted my application to their web site. After some time (2 months) I've been contacted by their HR and after their screening I've got a phone interview.

    The interview was conducted by a couple of their engineers. Basically, they were walking through the list of skills in my resume, checking my knowledge on each of these topics. These questions were not hard, but rather easy.

    For design patterns, they asked about Singleton.
    For STL, they asked how STL is implemented.
    When it comes to multithreading, questions were about problems regarding race conditions.
    Other questions were about length of IP address and MAC address.
    The final question was about what happens when someone visit some web address and how server redirects web browser.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at McAfee.

    Interview Details

    Received an initial call from a recruiter against my application, but the recruiter had the wrong position in front of him at first. Once that was clarified, he said the hiring manager was really interested in my resume. He set-up a phone screen which went well, and then he set up four further phone screens with other managers for a total of five interviews. All of these went well, but then I heard nothing back at all. I sent an inquiry email to the recruiter about three weeks later—heard nothing. I sent another one a couple of months later and heard nothing back again. Because the recruiter scheduled two of the phone screens incorrectly and had trouble with time zones, I'm guessing he lost track of me at some point. To not hear anything after two pleasant notes, however, is just rude and there's no other word for it, especially after taking the time to do five phone interviews.
