    Web Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Initial recruiter call, followed by a 30min phone screen and a week later was called for onsite interview (3 rounds) each one hour. Couple of days later I had 4 series for WebEx interviews each lasting an hour. Another week later I had a final interview with someone from leadership. I was told that I was a finalist candidate and the recruiter will get back with updates soon. One week later he abruptly cancelled the job posting in McAfee career site with a message that the job has been cancelled. No courtesy to even send an email and let me know. What a total waste of time it was. Very very unprofessional. I would never ever work for this company. Being a senior level developer this is the worst experience by far I have had in my 10 year career. The whole process took a month and a half.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Pretty long interview process. Took about a month, they take a week (or more) to get back to you after the first call. Kinda annoying to wait so long. 3 phone calls, 1 in person interview. They are very nice, just take a long time. Diversity seems to lack a little bit.

    1st Phone Call with Recruiter

    Reasons why I though the interview was poor.

    1)I was not given the opportunity to ask any questions on my end.
    2) The interview was very "transactional". Even though I went through my career history that I thought clearly showed I had the experience needed, it seemed like the recruiter didn't even listen or look at my background as it was stated that they may need someone with more experience within a relevant industry while I had the requisite amount of experience clearly on my resume as well as explaining it myself.
    3) The call was also several minutes late.
    4) Represented the company poorly. Someone I know interned there and the negative comments they had proved to ring true just through the phone call.

    I would not accept even if I had the opportunity to move forward.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got in touch with the team lead hiring for the position, who himself refered me for it.

    Short and simple screening round, tell me about yourself, why McAfee, any questions?

    One on one with team lead was postponed 15mins before the interview but the lead was polite enough to call and convey the urgency of a meeting. Rescheduled 5 days later, on call with team lead he asked me only one question, how many years of experience I have. I had none, call ended quickly. I was surprised he never saw my resume before the call.
