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

Interview

I applied through college. The first round was a written round. The test is organized by a company called eLitmus. There were 3 sections-quantitative(hard), problem-solving(medium level difficulty) and verbal ability(easy). Around 27 people were shortlisted for the next round. The 2nd round was a technical round, where I was asked about my projects and was given 3 coding questions. There was group discussion too. They shortlisted 12 from this round. The 3rd round was another technical round where I was asked to explain my best project in detail followed by a output question in python, that I messed up. And then I was given another chance, when he asked me a puzzle. The interviewer told me I was close to the answer and wished me all the best for my future endeavours. I got rejected, but it was great to be a part of this process.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at McAfee (Cork) in Jul 2019

Interview

I went through the whole process, 2 technical interviews, 2 managerial interviews. and a coding test at the beginning. They took so long to get back to me between each step! I had the main technical interview 2 weeks before I had the next step. and after I finished all the steps (including a managerial interview) they asked me to do another technical interview because one of the crucial interviewers was not present in the panel interview. Which I rejected and said that if her presence was crucial why didn't she attend the panel interview! but they convinced me that everything looks good and this step is just needed to finish the interview and they will get back to me soon after. which was surprisingly as they also got back to me after a long time. And said that my technical experience is not suitable for the position based on first interview which I did 1 month earlier at the time! Anyway I asked for a detailed explanation as I have invested lots of time in that process, the HR person promised to do so, but they never did!

Interview Questions
  • C++ questions, some design pattern question, and for managerial interview some questions about experience with long distance team work.
