    Software Engineer Summer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied through their website. Talked with HR (fairly casual) before scheduling a phone screening over Zoom the following week. The connection was poor for the entire call, and made the interview very difficult.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at McAfee (San Jose, CA (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Applied through referral.
    1) Had a phone interview about background and had take home assignment.
    2) Then had two interviews with the Manager and Sr Manager. Had positive feedback on my take home assignment
    3) Had onsite interview with 5 team members, had a positive conversation with all of them. After this, I was told this position is temporarily closed due to COVID and they will reach out once it is open. After a month I saw the same position online and reached back to the team and HR. No response, except for one team member who said they went ahead with someone else. Very disappointed with the interview process. Such a waste of time for someone who is putting so much of effort into the interview.

    Web Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Initial recruiter call, followed by a 30min phone screen and a week later was called for onsite interview (3 rounds) each one hour. Couple of days later I had 4 series for WebEx interviews each lasting an hour. Another week later I had a final interview with someone from leadership. I was told that I was a finalist candidate and the recruiter will get back with updates soon. One week later he abruptly cancelled the job posting in McAfee career site with a message that the job has been cancelled. No courtesy to even send an email and let me know. What a total waste of time it was. Very very unprofessional. I would never ever work for this company. Being a senior level developer this is the worst experience by far I have had in my 10 year career. The whole process took a month and a half.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Plano, TX (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Pretty long interview process. Took about a month, they take a week (or more) to get back to you after the first call. Kinda annoying to wait so long. 3 phone calls, 1 in person interview. They are very nice, just take a long time. Diversity seems to lack a little bit.
