I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McAfee

Interview

A total of 3 rounds were conducted. First was a discussion over phone. Next was a technical discussion with 2 members over video call (Both members had their cameras shut off - they informed that both their cameras were not working). Next was a managerial round with 2 managers. (Again, both had their cameras shut off and cited the same reason). Wonder what sort of equipment McAfee provides their employees with. After all rounds, no response from HR.

Had three technical round and one managerial round. Medium level coding questions asked in interview. If someone having conceptual knowledge in DS Algo then it is easy to clear. Managerial is mostly on current work related question and basic knowledge on system design.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McAfee (Bangalore) in Oct 2021

Interview

I was interviewed in October 2021 by a lesser experienced person than me (though not an issue it felt weird because he wasn't able to frame his questions also). Also the one who took my interview was not the one who was originally scheduled to take up the interview as per the interview invite. Anyways I answered 6 of his 7 questions and felt I should be cleared to next round. Not an issue even if it was not cleared because this is an interview and perspectives can change. A week went by and there was no feedback. I sent a mail with no luck even after another week. I called up the HR for a feedback and guess what she never picked up my call. I tried after another week and this time she picked and when I asked for feedback she cut the call. I really don't know what I should say further about this experience. I have been interviewed by startups and companies larger than mcafee but never had to face such a bad experience. I always thought mcafee was a reputed company and I was so happy to even give an interview. But I didn't know that this company doesn't even have time and any process for hiring. Couldn't arrange proper interview and couldn't even give a feedback. Now I feel thank God I didn't get cleared. Absolutely horrible experience to say the least.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee in Sep 2021

Interview

I cleared one in-person round and one online coding round. Post that HR kept on rescheduling saying their interviewers are on sick leave every day. I gave up their drama. No respect for the candidate's time.
