    4. Sales manager

    They were very polite and questions were about my previous experience, expectations and the role itself.

    After long time without hear anything, I went in the web site application form and there was a message saying “no selected”. I had to checked in the Intel security web site to see this message because in Mcafee web site the positions it is not updated

    No feedback nor email saying somthing afterthat

    An advice for HH.RR would be, please give a feedback to the postulants, as we deserve a bit of respect during the process and it is very important to know if the process is ongoing or it is conclude.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clarita, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McAfee (Santa Clarita, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 8 people (45 minutes a piece). I asked what the next step was and was told that I needed to come back to meet with a few more people so they can get into more details of what I did before. What the heck do they want from me next...blood? It's been two weeks and I haven't heard back so I'm assuming they are passing on me. I sent a thank you email and they didn't even acknowledge me. They didn't have the courtesy to let me know, "thanks but no thanks." It's rude and their lack of communication severely discourages me from ever applying there again. Totally their loss.
