    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at McAfee (Bangalore (India)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    First 2 rounds were the telephonic interview.
    1st one was taken by dev engineer: Basically networing, OS, Kernel.
    2nd round was taken by the hiring manager: He focused on puzzles, and expectations.

    Then I was called for F2F, where I have 3 technical, 1 HR, 1 discussion with hire management, then I was offered and i excepted it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The HR offer me a package, I will says he was not at all friendly, I will suggest him to improve in this field. Well the hiring manager talked to me and he was convincing. Initially they offered me a draft version. The actual package was offered me 6-7 days after the interview. They have some approval process from US. I will say this approval process is very slow, one other area that needs improvement.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Takes quite a bit to get in the door. This tends to be a very slow process. Your best bet is to have it be an employee referral. Their HR department seems to have some turnover so you can get tripped up there. Interviewed for a position and it took 4 weeks to get called back for a second interview.

    Negotiation

    Since I was out of work there was a take it or leave it attitude from HR manager.
