    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Bengaluru (India)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Entire process was well organised and very technical oriented. They were hiring for python developers. First round was telephonic and was asked too many questions other than my work areas. Though it went below par (according to me), I got call for F2F interviews.
    There were 3 more tech rounds. First round was about basics of Java, Python, Programming skills, my experience, work areas etc. I was given with 2-3 sheets of papers that contained questions in Python. And then asked to write a program in Java (on a paper sheet, not coding round).
    Second round was purely Java round. Was asked about Stack, Queues and implementation of those with different conditions.
    Third round was to check my resume. Asked about each and every word in my resume.
    After tech rounds, one managerial and one hr round.
    In managerial, I was asked to write a piece of code to implement threading, stack etc. HR round was normal i.e., why are you leaving your current employer? Etc etc.
    Through out the process, they made me feel comfortable and difficulty was above average.

    Interview Questions

    • Implementation of thread safe stack, with some memory constraints. (In managerial)   Answer Question
    • Asked about Big and Little Endian, prickling and unprickling, network topology, Reverse a linked list etc (Telephonic)   Answer Question
