    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MasterCard in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through school career site. A month or two later I heard back with a scheduled HR skype interview. This was a 30 minute professional skills interview, the HR person was very nice. Two hours later I heard back with a follow up final round interview super day. At this event we had solo interviews and solo case study presentations. One hour after the super day I got a call back with a job offer. This process was very enjoyable and easy to go through. MasterCard replied very quickly at each step of the way and their HR people were always nice and supportive.

    Interview Questions
    • We had 2 hours to work on a case study and present it., but it was not unexpected since the company mentions the case study in the super day invitation.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at MasterCard.

    Interview Details

    Not an interview at all. I was surprised to find out that the group was far from cutting edge and really behind the times. I walked away feeling like I had just time-warped back to 1999

    Interview Questions
    • None! I spent a few hours giving them solutions to the challenges they where asked to meet by senior management. I was really surprised at their lack of knowledge, I left the interview really feeling sorry for the team, they seemed like very nice folks.   Answer Question
