    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at McAfee (Kfar Saba (Israel)).

    Interview

    At the time of the interview, there were 2 open positions. A software development position and a security research position. I couldn't decide which of them I wanted more, so I applied to both of them, which caused an increase of the number of interviews.
    All interviewers were professional and didn't try to make the interview too technical, which I liked

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    2 stages of selection for interview shortlisting. An eLitmus percentile of 98+ followed by a Multiple choice quiz on computer science, Data structures and programming fundamentals. The latter should not be much of a problem if you are thorough with the basics, though getting a good eLitmus score is the hard part. The job role included a combination of development and testing.

    Interview Questions

    • Design a data structure where insertion, deletion, data access and get random element are all done in O(1), i.e., constant time. (Without using STL or Hash tables)   3 Answers
    • Many coding questions about friend functions in C++.   Answer Question
