    Interview

    1. They do not ask much about data structures and algorithms, Instead I have seen people shying away from such things
    2. They ask about simple things, e.g. programming in java/C/C++/Python but, not too much deep level questions

    Interview

    Because it was an internal referral. I was invited to onsite immediately after one round of phone screen. It was really nice experience with them and following up from recruiter is quick as well. The only problem was my expected salary is higher than what they are willing to offer. So it didn't work out. Very nice people by the way.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the biggest challenge you faced during your current employment. There are so many challenges so it was kinda hard to organize it right and clean and to represent it. Overall, the interview was not very hard.   Answer Question

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Declined Offer
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Very standard interview questions and process. They ask you what makes you a good sales person, and what your track record is. Where you see yourself in the future. Some standard questions about your general level of IT knowledge. McAfee finds itself very interesting, so they ask you tons of questions about McAfee itself.

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel comfortable during the recruitment process. Very expendable.

    Interview

    I was referred to McAfee by an employee of McAfee who I had worked with previously. I had a phone interview and a face to face interview with 3 Vice Presidents. I did not interview with the 2 other woman who would be on ym team and that was a draw back.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at McAfee.

    Interview

    Interview process was very lenghty and done by many people both on the phone and in person. Interviews were handled very professionaly and technical oriented. Interviews were held on time as agreed by persons interviewing. HR took a little longer than average to complete the hiring process but they were very friendly and answered any questions I had.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you explain what a database is to a 5 year old?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at McAfee (Kfar Saba (Israel)).

    Interview

    At the time of the interview, there were 2 open positions. A software development position and a security research position. I couldn't decide which of them I wanted more, so I applied to both of them, which caused an increase of the number of interviews.
    All interviewers were professional and didn't try to make the interview too technical, which I liked
