    Online application, phone interview followed by an interview in Aylesbury at McAfee. This consisted of a programming test, technical interview and interviews with the teams I was applying to.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McAfee (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The interview process itself was not be really difficult. An extensive phone interview followed by an extensive on-site interview. But the background check was exhaustive, lengthy, and delayed my hire date by nearly a month. In the meantime I'd given notice and left my previous position, so right before Christmas I had three weeks with no income.

    • I had to resubmit background check information several times through the third-party hiring system.   1 Answer
