I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MasterCard in April 2013.
Interview Details –
After submitting an application online I contacted a recruitment officer that was listed online and explained that I was applying for a summer internship position and attached my resume.
The officer was very quick about getting back to me, despite the fact that they were currently out of office. A phone interview was scheduled and consisted of mostly HR/screening questions. I walked through my resume and explained the material/information on it.
After that I was asked to travel to MasterCard Technologies HQ in O'Fallon, Missouri. Unfortunately, I was asked to provide my own transportation (which I had) but it was still somewhat aggravating. The in-person interview in O'Fallon was, again, more HR/screening questions and some technical questions.
After the interview, I was told I would be contacted in the next week with a decision. However, probably due to the fact that there were very few spaces left, I was contacted later that day with an offer.
Interview Question – There were really no difficult questions, mostly questions regarding my experience in coding and IT, as it was an internship/entry level position. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was given little to no negotiation power. The only part I was able to influence was the timeline on when I would give a response to the offer.
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at MasterCard in December 2012.
Interview Details –
I was interviewed on campus for a 1:1 behavioral interview and then I was invited to the MasterCard campus for interviews with different team managers who wanted to interview with me.
I wasn't asked any technical questions. It was all standard behavioral interview questions and we went over my resume. The on-site interview was informal and relaxed. I was a little annoyed they didn't pay for my trip up to the campus.
Interview Question – All standard behavioral questions Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Took offer at another company
I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at MasterCard in May 2012.
Interview Details –
As I was traveling for a couple of conferences, HR was extremely accommodating about scheduling a phone interview - they waited till I return to stateside. The interview was a wonderful easy process, though some questions about current academic work can be challenging.
After which, Management will interview via phone, and again, it was no fuss and easy to work with. I was impressed by how efficient and professional everyone was, and I was certainly excited to work with the people I have spoken with over the entire process.
