    UI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at McAfee in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    took a couple months, I even forgot when it was started. I was interviewed for one team, didn't pass, even I thought I was over-skilled for a job position. HR contacted me again a month later. Another round of interview for another team. Total: phone calls with HR representative, back and force, two phone interviews, two in person.
    First team was asking different range of questions, from personality question to technical skills, all around. Some of them asked the same questions all around.... Some of them didn't know the answer themselves... and had no idea what they were asking. Some of them got bored interviewing and were answering phone calls or played with their phone :-(. I was disappointed.
    Second team was amazing, no stupid questions, very simple programming questions and overall very pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about common IP addresses and network connection, just didn't expect it for this position.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I expected more and I was told more, but they called back and said less. Kinda surprising... I accepted bz of better position I've had at that time.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at McAfee in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    McAfee internal contact reached out to make a recruiting effort for a new position he was creating. Went through extensive phone discussions, all of which sounded great, but as we started talking about the meat of the matter it became clear that this was a pet project rather than a broad strategic role as originally described. I was concerned it wouldn't have genuine support elsewhere inside the business and withdrew from the process.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel it was as substantial a position as originally described.
