I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at McAfee.

Interview Details – At first the standard telephone interview, in order to check if the candidate is suitable for a face to face interview. Then the second stage with the face to face interview. The face to face interview consisted of a quick tour of the building, showing all the facilities, then after a test.

Interview Question – I suggest to get ready for questions specific to the role.   Answer Question

Senior Software Development Engineer Interview

Senior Software Development Engineer
Aylesbury, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at McAfee in March 2008.

Interview Details – After talking to the recruiter, and going through the usual "skills checklist" and "small talk" (personality assessment?), a phone interview (by the hiring manager) was conducted. The interview was mainly technical.

After that, a series of interviews was booked (all during the course of one day). First, there was a C++ test (to be solved by developing software on a stand-alone computer), followed by a 1:1 with the hiring manager (of a technical background), then a 1:1 with the director for the division (the hiring manager's manager).

Interview Question – Can't quite remember. Everything was reasonable for the technical level they were hiring for.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – As I already had an offer from another company at the time of the interviews, McAfee moved forward quite quickly, and made an offer on the next day, quoting they weren't interested in a "bidding war" with the other company.
