    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McAfee in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. Got an email from the hiring manager for a telephonic interview. In the interview I was asked some personal and technical questions. Got good feedback and he said he will schedule a webex session for some hands on coding. It went well and he mentioned HR will contact you. But then all mess. They were not offering me the best package and although I accepted it they even changed the role from Lead to a junior position. I denied and mentioned if I would have known this earlier I would have never applied.
