    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McAfee in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    They were very quick and hurried, I meet in person with 6 people one on one. Each person had 30 minuets to interview me. Four of the interviewers ask the exact same questions so I believe there was no communication or plan around their process. Two interviewers admitted to not reading my resume before the interview.
