Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in January 2015.

Interview

I thought the interview process was interesting. There were two people asking me questions on one end of the table. I felt a little nervous considering this was one of my first job interviews with a company of this size. The interviewers try to make the interview process easy by making you comfortable. They will then go into certain details of what you learned in your classes so that they can see what you grasped from them.

Interview Questions

  • They ask you a standard set of questions to give each individual an equal chance at getting hired. There were a lot and I'm sure you can find these online. One specific question I remember them asking included what were some recent difficulties you came across and how did you overcome those difficulties.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at USAA.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus recruiting website. Was contacted for a first-round interview. Had dinner the with the employers the night before. First interview was behavioral/fit - mainly asking about you and why USAA. Was contacted within two weeks for a second round interview at their headquarters in San Antonio. The second round took most of the day, and consisted of a 30 minute one-on-on interview, a online skills assignment, and a group case study/presentation, as well as a tour of the office.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at USAA.

    Interview

    Very smooth and easy experience. I am going through the interview process of the CFO program. Hard to find information about it online. Begins with 10 week internship then finish of your senior year and come back to work after graduation with a full time job. Wonderful program to be apart of. I am current on the final interview for a total of two. Very comfortable people to speak with during an initial two person panel interview. The final interview is onsite and includes a stay at a nice hotel in San Antonio along with a dinner with all the applicants the night before. Interviews and site tour the following day. So far so good!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me of a time you helped lead a team. Many typical behavioral questions. Just make sure you have stories to back them up!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations.
