    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at MasterCard (Purchase, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Took a while to get noticed enough to get an interview, but once that happened the process was very enjoyable. Everyone I met was extremely nice, professional, and responsive. The entire process was the best managed that I've ever experienced. I had 1 phone interview with the hiring manager, and then a full day of in-person interviews on site.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly just questions regarding the resume and past experiences. Some behavioral questions. Nothing really technical. They were looking to just hire smart people instead of testing how good my memory was in recalling technical details on the spot.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at MasterCard (Purchase, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    HR leader found me on Linked In and initiated contact for a position. I had 3 phone interniews and 3 in person interviews. After the 3 in person interviews, I was told they would contact me in the end of the week. I wasn't contacted. I sent an email to HR a few days later asking where they were in the process and didn't get a response. 3 weeks after the in person interview I receive one of those authomatic emails saying thank you but you were not selected.

    I would expect aftert 6 interviews that I would at least get a reply to my email, even if it was to say they are still in the process or that I didn't get an offer. But I got nothing, until I received the automatic email weeks later.

    Interview

    I applied online through school career site. A month or two later I heard back with a scheduled HR skype interview.

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 did not negotiate my offer. I was more than happy with their offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at MasterCard (Purchase, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    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.
