    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at McAfee in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Caveat: This is one of the bizarre interviews I have had so far.
    It was a very straight fwd process. Whole process took just a day. A written exam to start off, not a tough one at all. After screening, we were announced timings for the first round. The initial round was by an HR. He did not have any technical background for sure, so, he just asked two questions on basic math(apti/set theory, whatever you want to call it) and then the round was over. Looked like short-listed people would be called for the next round, interestingly none of the candidates were shortly. I was shocked, but, then it happens.

    Interview Questions
    • Question was on set theory. It was some application of demorgan's law. thats it.   Answer Question
