    Interview

    1. They do not ask much about data structures and algorithms, Instead I have seen people shying away from such things
    2. They ask about simple things, e.g. programming in java/C/C++/Python but, not too much deep level questions

    Interview Questions

    • There was as such not any difficult question. They dont have such difficult questions to ask for in interviews   Answer Question

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Because it was an internal referral. I was invited to onsite immediately after one round of phone screen. It was really nice experience with them and following up from recruiter is quick as well. The only problem was my expected salary is higher than what they are willing to offer. So it didn't work out. Very nice people by the way.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the biggest challenge you faced during your current employment. There are so many challenges so it was kinda hard to organize it right and clean and to represent it. Overall, the interview was not very hard.   Answer Question

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Very standard interview questions and process. They ask you what makes you a good sales person, and what your track record is. Where you see yourself in the future. Some standard questions about your general level of IT knowledge. McAfee finds itself very interesting, so they ask you tons of questions about McAfee itself.

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel comfortable during the recruitment process. Very expendable.

    Interview

    I was referred to McAfee by an employee of McAfee who I had worked with previously. I had a phone interview and a face to face interview with 3 Vice Presidents. I did not interview with the 2 other woman who would be on ym team and that was a draw back.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very straight forward, I started as a contractor and then was converted to an employee

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee.

    Interview

    Technical HR personnel was very good in explaining in initial conversation.
    I had 3 Tele rounds and HR person was really frank enough to tell me exact feedback.
    for Example, After the 2nd Tele round, He informed me that Interviewer was not much impressed but finally voted as 55 / 45 in my favor.

    All 3 tele rounds were focused.
    1st - Pure coding skills (1 hr)
    2nd : Algorithm Skills (1.5 Hrs)
    3rd: NTFS, FS and Kernel (45 Mins)

    After I cleared all 3 tele rounds, I was asked to come down to their office for full day interview process.
