Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Gur Gram (India)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at McAfee (Gur Gram (India)) in January 2014.

Interview

It was the toughest interview I faced. There were 3 rounds of interviews, first two being technical and third being Project Manager round. Questions were on the tougher side and a good understanding of the topics is the way to go. Moreover, they were mostly looking for the approach a person uses to solve a problem.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted by HR. Interview process started with half an hour phone call with Hiring Manager. Invited for 5 round of interview at onsite, including hiring manager. Fairly easy questions but they wanted all of them to be written on paper, which was tedious. There was no technical discussion, just simple programs. Most of the guys were really in different zone, may be not in sync with current market and I would not blame them as that's what happen when you are in the same company for long time :). Finally offer was low compare to the expectation.

    Phone interview + face-to-face interview. Nothing too tricky. Search google for software interview questions. Meet with the director for some communication software, then a senior software engineer for some basic technical questions. Then meet with a test software manager for some more communication questions. (The hiring manager was on vacation at that time)
