Associate Analyst Interview

Associate Analyst
Purchase, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at MasterCard in December 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through on-campus recruiting, followed with an onsite Superday. Interviewed with the leaders of all their product divisions and an employee from HR. Standard behavioral interview (Why mastercard, walk me through your resume, etc) -- since the interview is not terribly analytical or case based, make sure you know your answers thoroughly and have a compelling pitch for you're a good fit for the position. Research the products beforehand, come in with knowledge of the payments industry, possible competitors, and your own ideas. One brief case study for their prepaid division. Overall, very painless if you're well prepared and know what you're doing.

Interview Question – Segment the market for people who are denied credit and propose a solution for engaging that customer base.   Answer Question

Associate Analyst Interview

Associate Analyst
Purchase, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at MasterCard in February 2012.

Interview Details – Initial interview with two HR individuals at the school
Contacted about in-person interviews in Purchase, NY
Interviewed by 6 professionals, 30 minutes each, two different departments
Offered a position two weeks later
Accepted a month later

People from different departments have different personalities. Seemed like they are still using cubicles for lower level employees, but conference/group work rooms are in every section. Location of office was very nice. Saw employees going out during lunch time and running around the campus. Seems like a good work/life balance. Hesitant about promotion/advancement opportunities.
