    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at McAfee (London, England)


    If you are a female, dont waste your time interviewing with them. The attitude the interviewer showed is as if females are not for challenging roles. That's how they talk. And if they are looking for modern C++, that should be clarified before first round. Not after wasting someone's time on weekdays for 4 hours.
    My first interview was for 1 hour, second one was for 2 hours, then in third interview,interviewer kept asking questions on C++11 asking to code even though I said I dont have working experience in c++11 and above. Even I gave theoretical explanation too. He decided not to hire female and then tried to collect reasons to reject me. Females candidates please don't waste your time. The interviewers show too much attitude. I will never come back here even if I get a chance. Completely lost the respect that I had about this company. And they dont value the problem solving skills at all and No problem solving coding questions. They belive someone's talent is based on knowing a specific version of a language.

    first round basics, all 3 rounds were in C++ , multithreading. No DSA or coding. they dont value your problem solving skills at all.
