    Software Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    Very relaxed, laid back. Was asked about experience, past interactions with groups, and some brain teasers. Interview process was mainly behavioral however there were some technical questions. Emphasis was placed more heavily upon if you would be a good fit for the company. Overall I found the interview process enjoyable.

The were very transparent about the challenges and opportunities with the role and the department. The whole interview process felt very conversational not transactional.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    It was pretty easy. General architectural questions. Explained server technologies and general coding approaches to them. I did it on the phone and then spent a week being evaluated on the job as I began working. Which I prefer anyway. Showed them how I coded, how much I knew about servers and shell scripting and how I did at setting up other technologies for them and for the project. They also were evaluating how I interacted with a team.

    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    First, a telephonic interview mostly dealing with algorithms and data structures, in a language of your choice, as mentioned in Resume.
    My preference was Java.
    The Interview went on for about 45 mins, it was more like discussion where the interviewer expected you to know how hashtables work, if hashtables are the best data structure for the given situation.

    Most think it is, but we need to talk about conflicts and conflict resolution.

    Alternate data structures like trees should be considered.

    The second round was an online quiz test. Depending upon ur degree, the difficulty of the quiz is determined I believe.

    Didnt go as I had wanted. Few questions were on data structures, mcqs. Then two coding questions.
    One was straightforward, required efficient use of a data structure. Second question was unexpectedly on dynamic programming which I was not able to code.

    Imp - Be very very familiar with the hackerrank environment. They allow you to code in your IDE and you can later copy paste into the browser, but make sure you are properly reading the input. Secondly, make sure you submit the answer, even if its wrong or incomplete.

    Interview Details

    Took 1 month from the date of application until the initial contact. Phone interview was setup then which included Advanced Data Structures Questions and some questions from the resume. Was invited to a online coding challenge which included 4 MCQ's and 2 Programming questions and they were not so hard. Two days Later invited to On-site which had 3 1hr interviews with Hiring managers from different team. Questions from Basic programming/Algorithms and some design questions. Overall if you know basic concepts well, it would be relatively easy to crack.

    Interview Details

    I met them at a career fair and they scheduled an interview within two days. The first round was technical, and asked some pretty simple questions. There were two more such interviews, one that assessed general problem solving and the other emphasizing coding (some questions were a bit challenging). The last round was a behavioral interview, but had easy questions overall.
