    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at McAfee (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    There was one initial phone call with the HR. After that, another phone call with the hiring manager. The hiring manager asked me to complete a design assignment in addition. There was three parts to the on-site Interview process. The first is a group presentation to the entire design team for about a hour. The second part includes several 1 on 1 with key stakeholders (product managers, sr. engineers, members of the design team, hiring manager), and with enough time left, you will do a design exercise with several design team members. The design exercise lasts about a hour where they will give you an example problem/project and you will role play and respond to the scenario. The entire on-site interview process could take up to 5 hours. If they have doubts about your skill, be prepared for a second on-site interview or even more design assignments that you will have to complete.

    Interview Questions

    • The design exercise can throw some candidates off. Some good advices - be very authentic to who you are. Note that it really isn't about the design solution you come up with. They are not looking for the right answer, but your thinking process and the way you interact with other design team members.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McAfee (Sunnyvale, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    They were very quick and hurried, I meet in person with 6 people one on one. Each person had 30 minuets to interview me. Four of the interviewers ask the exact same questions so I believe there was no communication or plan around their process. Two interviewers admitted to not reading my resume before the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    At no point was I given time to ask interviewers questions, I had nothing to go on.
