I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MasterCard in January 2012.
Interview Details – I applied with Mastercard through a recruiter, and Mastercard scheduled the interview within 2 weeks. I drove to their O'Fallon campus and interviewed at 8am. I met with a team lead who would be my boss. The interview was not very technical. He mostly questioned me about my approaches to project management and wanted to know about my previous experience. I could tell he was technical in the past, but had left technical roles for management.
Interview Question – Tell me about your experiences with Java Development View Answer
Reason for Declining – Even though I gave the recruiter a minimum salary, Mastercard offered much lower than my minimum (33% less). I attribute this not to Mastercard's difficult negotiation tactics, but to the recruiter's ineptitude and/or lack of ethics.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at MasterCard in June 2010.
Interview Details –
First had a phone interview. Then 2 were sort listed for F2F. All they were looking for is whether I knew the basic concepts of Java, Spring, Hibernate and GWT. Did well with all questions except GWT. Panel had 3 people including project manager and 2 tech leads. They made me very comfortable. Looked to be very good team to work with.
But could not make it. Feedback was good, but they said since they were looking for only one person, they are taking the other guy, since he did well in GWT.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at MasterCard in November 2009.
Interview Details –
Initial phone interview was quick and seemed more of a formality than anything. The phone interview consisted of 3 or 4 questions recapping some of the highlights from my resume and then moved on to scheduling a panel interview. An email was sent by the HR representative requesting that an online application be completed prior to the face-to-face interview.
The group interview began with a 20 minute meeting with an HR representative detailing the benefits offered should I get the position and I was then led to a small conference room. The group interview consisted of 4 Business Analysts from that particular team, as well as the Senior Analyst. Each panel member was permitted to ask questions.
The questions were pretty standard such as "Can you tell me about a time when you gathered requirements and it wasn't enough?" an "Have you ever worked on project with tight deadlines?" and "How do you handle stress?". The project life-cycle for MasterCard was 6-12 months... sometimes longer. This seemed to be a major talking point for the team, as was their concern for making sure revisions to the submitted requirements documents happened as infrequently as possible. They were quick to point out that they had their own format for documentation and anyone getting the position would be following that same format.
The two questions I struggled with the most were "Can you describe the layout of your documentation?" which should've been a lay-up but the answers I gave never seemed enough. The other question I struggled with was role-playing with them as to my approach in interviewing stakeholders for project documentation. If you're asked this question remember to be extra thorough.
After the obligatory "thank-you" emails I got an email a few days later saying I had not gotten the position. Good luck and I hope this helps!
