    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at McAfee (Aylesbury, England) in March 2008.

    Interview

    After talking to the recruiter, and going through the usual "skills checklist" and "small talk" (personality assessment?), a phone interview (by the hiring manager) was conducted. The interview was mainly technical.

    After that, a series of interviews was booked (all during the course of one day). First, there was a C++ test (to be solved by developing software on a stand-alone computer), followed by a 1:1 with the hiring manager (of a technical background), then a 1:1 with the director for the division (the hiring manager's manager).

    Interview Questions

    • Can't quite remember. Everything was reasonable for the technical level they were hiring for.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    As I already had an offer from another company at the time of the interviews, McAfee moved forward quite quickly, and made an offer on the next day, quoting they weren't interested in a "bidding war" with the other company.
