    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied while still part of Intel. After about 2 months contacted by recruiter. Called for an initial screening and then a phone interview with several team members. Phone interview was heavy on standard technical questions. After a week invited to in-person interview to see the building and answer a few more behavioral and technical questions. Overall great experience.

    Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Email from a coordinator about a month after I applied asking if I was still interested. Face to face interview with one person scheduled for the next week. Interview was enjoyable and informal. Consisted mostly of an explanation of the organization and it goals with some questions peppered in about my resume and how I might address particular issues. Was told that there was several more interviews still in process and they would get back to me. Emailed thank you. Offered additional insight into the position and how I would attack the role. Nothing. Completely ghosted. Multiple casual email attempts were ignored. Never got one ounce of feedback. Since spinning off in April I assume they are only organized on the surface and most of the back-end stuff is still a complete mess. Not even providing a short reply to multiple contact attempts is a pretty good clue as to what it would be like working there at this time in my opinion. Even if they thought I was a complete idiot I am a customer and I have a network. For a sales improvement focused organization that’s not acceptable.

    Software Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at McAfee (Santa Clara, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Three total interview sessions. 1. Interview with hiring Regional Director. 2. Interview with members of the local sales team. 3. Interview with VP Sales. Very standard and common job interview questions. For this particular hiring Director and VP, they were really looking for a candidate that is a team player, a candidate that will leverage McAfee's internal executive resources as well as a candidate that would "fit" into the McAfee culture.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McAfee (Dallas, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, met with prospective supervisor in person, spoke with senior manager by phone. I think I had the job before speaking with senior manager. He/she wanted to be sure I was the correct fit because it came of their budget.

    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.
