    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Received a call from the recruiter 2 months after applying. After the HR phone screen, spoke to the hiring manager on the phone and then was invited for a combination of onsite and phone interviews - 4 rounds each 10 days apart. I wish the interview process was more cohesive. After the last interview did not hear back from the recruiter despite emailing several times.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McAfee in March 2014.

    Interview

    don't remember when I applied to this position. And someday I just receive an email about a phone interview. It's a conmen interview. Asked about my background. When he heard about that I am a new graduate. He just said thank you and hang the phone. And there's no more info heard. I think they want someone more experienced. And obviously I am not that experienced in this field.

    Anyway, their attitude was nice. Just don't match.
