Senior Software Development Engineer In Test Interview

Senior Software Development Engineer In Test
Sunnyvale, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – write a function to to reverse a string?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – At no point was I given time to ask interviewers questions, I had nothing to go on.
