    I was recruited in career fair. Had 1:1 interview, rejected after that. I would have liked to receive feedback on it, I was told by the interviewer I did really good and the interview even lasted more than expected, but I only got an automated email saying I was rejected during the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at USAA in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found out about opportunity through university career fairs (they do alot of work with university relations). They have 2 interviews and always have 3 specific questions - one problem solving, one logical, and one creative. The problem solving is something like given a set of clues, can you figure out the solution to the problem? The logical question is coming up with a design, key features, or capabilities that a certain new product would need (innovative thinking). The creative questions is similar and asks you to come up with a unique solution or design to solve a certain problem at hand. All are very easy-going and do not require intense programming skills. They don't ask you to write code or anything like that. The interview is behavioral based and measures your personality as a fit to their culture.

    Interview Questions
    • The design and logical questions (described above) was what I thought was most challenging. They are looking for certain key words from your answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at USAA in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to engineers at college career fair. Made a good impression and was emailed to set up an on campus interview within 5 days (despite being told that it was unlikely because I was a freshman). Interview was scheduled about three weeks after the initial contact at career fair. This interview (with an experienced developer turned manager) went well, and I received a phone call 5 days later asking to setup a second round phone interview (this time with two IT managers) for the end of the week. I received an offer 5 days thereafter. Altogether, the process took a little more than 4 weeks. My process was expedited, but I was offered an expenses-paid San Antonio visit/tour of the campus before my offer deadline.

    Both interviews were /very/ similar. One mathematical reasoning question, two design/innovation questions. Nothing you can prepare for really.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a school career fair, and turned in a resume. A couple weeks later I received an email setting up an interview, which was on campus. The interviewer was friendly, and the precess went smoothly. I later found out I did not make the final round of interviews, but it was still a good learning experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at USAA in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview and then on-site interview in San Antonio. The night before the interviews, there's a nice dinner with some of the recruiters and the other candidates. The next day, we went to the interview. You get a chance to tour the facility (and take a drug test).

    The interview wasn't bad. There are two interviewers and most of the questions are standard interview questions ("Think of a time when..."). There was also a written part of the interview. However, the questions are not very technical. Just take your time when you to them, if you need to.

    Unfortunately, a change in my classes meant that I couldn't work when I had intended to so I couldn't be considered for the position. I would definitely recommend applying though!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at USAA in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted to schedule a phone interview. This was part technical but mostly like a screening interview with more general questions. I was then called 2 weeks later to schedule a face to face interview at their headquarters. There were two rounds, first technical and then with two managers who asked questions to assess behavioral skills and personality. 2 weeks later i had an offer in hand.
