If you interview with Visa, be prepared for the process to take as long as two months with as much as two weeks with no status update or movement. Main campus is overcrowded in general. Also Visa appears to have focused pulling it's talent from overseas almost exclusively. Asian males, primarily of Indian origin dominate the Foster City campus and hallways.

It was for a UAT lead position and two of the interviewers would be my colleagues (same job function), two were from the QA group, and two represented requirements analysis. They were all trying to get a feel for how I would be to work with for their respective roles.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in July 2015.
I had 30 minute phone interview, Interviewer called 10 minutes late. All went really well, he asked general quality question, one program, complexity and data structures. He said he would like to call for onsite interview and said Talk to you soon at the end, Only concerned he showed about salary range I was asking for. On the same day I got automated email for rejection and I emailed back to HR for feedback and said that I can go lower if I am getting good opportunity. She has no idea about reason for rejection and told me that we provide this much of salary to people who has 5 years of experience and all. I simply asked for feedback because I know after rejection they will not accept my candidacy, but this type of behavior is not acceptable. After 1 day she replied that actual reason was my communication & technical skills. Are you kidding?
