    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    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

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Skype interviews for candidates abroad-- and they require you to wear a suit.   2 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

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

    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

    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.
