    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McAfee (Hillsboro, OR) in September 2011.

    Interview

    You meet with the group manager and several engineers. For my interview, they cycle thru the interviewers one person at a time. Each interviewer asks you their favorite interview questions.

    There is usually a programming test given before the interviews start so that the interviewers have a chance to see how you did.

    In my opinion, many of the interviewers' questions were the typical theoretical challenge questions that really don't evaluate how well you'll do in real life. In real life, one researches information related to the question, evaluates what you find, often meshes various pieces of information to arrive at the "best" answer, applies a "make or buy" decision, and then implements the solution. The standard argument for the challenge questions is that they show how you think; and that is a valid goal. So I guess we just have to live with those types of interview questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McAfee (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    2 stages of selection for interview shortlisting. An eLitmus percentile of 98+ followed by a Multiple choice quiz on computer science, Data structures and programming fundamentals. The latter should not be much of a problem if you are thorough with the basics, though getting a good eLitmus score is the hard part. The job role included a combination of development and testing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McAfee (Bengaluru (India)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Role: Full stack developer
    Typical interview experience.

    1 Written round - UI related questions + Some programmings questions( FizzBuzz, Reverse a string & email validations)
    Tech Interview 1 - Basic UI concepts- closure & time out concepts & one programming question
    Tech Interview 2 - UI + Design + Algorithms
    Tech Interview 3 - UI + Resume + OOPs + DB + Projects + Java + Redis + Algorithms ( And literally everything... )

    The third guy was simply brilliant and he was simply testing core concepts for all topics. I screwed this up and was a little nervous in the end.

    Overall, neutral interview experience.
