Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at USAA in October 2014.

Interview Details

Met with them on the Career fair and had a behavior questions interview. Little math puzzle and some creative problem solving / problem solving approach.

After the 1st interview they contacted me a few weeks later offering me to go their campus in Plano, TX where they took us to Dinner and the next day more interviews and an more detailed overview of the company / benefits.

If you have any military connection be sure to mention it and bring it up. Most of the time they are asking for a fit for their culture and not a skillset.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at USAA in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I did not have the opportunity to speak with USAA at the career fair, but I applied online. The entire process lasted a little over a month. Shortly after I applied I was contacted for a videoconference interview. The interviewer asked typical behavioral questions and questions about my interest in the field. Two weeks later I was notified that I was selected for the final interviews. A week later I drove to San Antonio and we had dinner with the other students and a few members from the department. The next day we went to HQ and toured the campus, met with many people working in the department and were interviewed in a two person panel for about 45 minutes. All the questions were behavioral, but I could see how the questions were related to my specific position. They also based all of their questions from my experiences on my resume. I found out I was selected for the position three business days later.

    Interview on campus. Afterwards, got an e-mail for an on-site visit with other students. We had dinner the day before, then we got an escort to the facility. We were there for about 6 hours, but interview lasted only one hour. Two critical thinking questions and one math question the first interview, and one critical question and one math question. Same difficulty.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at USAA in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my college recruiting website, and was notified that I would have an interview on a scheduled day.

    In the interview, I was given a few problems. The first problem involved a simple algebraic problem solving skills. The second was designing a system for a pizza restaurant. The third was coming up with an innovation to replace elevators and escalators.

    Really they just wanted to see if I was logical yet creative while still being personable.

    Interview Questions
    • In the second interview they gave me a situation:

      If you were told one year in advance that a giant earthquake would completely break california from the mainland US, and had anyone's skills at your disposal, what would you do to prepare for that day.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at USAA in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first saw USAA at a career fair booth at my school where I was offered a next day interview. Among some behavioral questions there were some creative thinking questions given to see how I go about solving problems. After the interview I was contacted by HR to go onsite in san antonio to interview again. I was flew to san antonio for free and they provided a one night hotel as well as meals. I arrived onsite the next day where I interviewed with two managers and then I took a tour of the campus before flying back. I was emailed next week saying that I was not given the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at USAA in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Internship interview -- offsite.
    First half were questions about who you are, why you want to work at USAA and then personality questions relating to working with others and you are to give examples from your experience.
    Second half is more technically as they look for you to say keywords like development model names.
    Next they'll ask a critical analysis math problem, similar to a math problem on a middle school homework assignment. (Weird and confusing wording but a simple problem)
    Next they'll ask you a situational question relating to developing something and what the steps are required to build it.
    Then they'll ask crap like what are you personally interested in.

    Onsite interview is the same but a tag team. They follow a similar order of questions as the first one but they feel free to ask questions they want whenever.

    They gave us a time frame of when we would know when we would get notified and we weren't notified in the specified time frame. But recently learned there was a hiring freeze that caused some of lag between the recruiters and the potential interns.
