Interview

It was lengthy. I wish I would have spoken to previous incumbents to get the full story. The reality vs what is being sold is different. Reaching out to previous employees has shed a light to the problem.

Interview Questions
  • Provide a specific example that shows how you plan and prioritize your goals/objectives.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Indi, Karnataka, Karnataka) in Mar 2021

Interview

Worst Experience Ever. I was interviewed for SDE role in Banglore. The recruiter herself contacted me directly through phone. I saw the glassdoor reviews that the company has a poor HR Team and people had way too many negative experiences but didn't believe it as it is a Standard MNC Company and has good fame. After all the rounds they told I got selected and sent me an offer proposal later. I accepted that day. they took the reference check and pay slips and other details and no call after that. I was waiting for the offer letter from them and since they didn't inform me anything I mailed the HR asking for my Interview Update. They were like "Business internally decided to close the position". If they have a minimum idea how much a job is important to a person and their family they could have just put a mail regarding the same. This is totally useless company and the Team is worst. They say you are selected and propose an offer and lster they decide to close the position. Its really waste of time to get interviewed here. They won't value the candidate or their time. If you are in a serious job hunt its better not to even consider this company in first place. The whole interview process took 1 month and nothing its just a waste.

Interview Questions
  • All basic questions based on your resume and their requirements.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Bangalore) in Mar 2021

Interview

Total 5 rounds (Process went total 25 days and then no feedback ...!!!) 3rd round two times as they got mixed feedback ( Panel was expecting coding skill like the developer has) In the 4th round, the manager talks about the project needs more manual testing experience so why they took the coding round 2 times and expecting the coding skill(Data structure, Algorithm), They don't even provide interview feedback and immediately after some day they schedule another round without checking your availability if they dont find any other good candidate. The panel was not in line with the project needs. Very Bad Experience, Not Recommending to Anyone to waste your time with McAfee

Interview Questions
  • Testing questions Project-related questions Test framework related questions Python basics to advance
