Interview Details – I submitted my resume online through my college career website. I was contacted by phone to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes of get-to-know me and my interest in the position. Questions were about my leadership experience, a time I overcame a problem in a work or school situation, something I was proud of, and other similar questions. Then I was contacted by phone to schedule an on-site interview at the Redwood City office. I was supposed to meet with three individuals, one executive and two other people with the company. Only one of the people was actually in the office. The other two interviews were over the phone in their conference room. Each interview was about 30 minute long. I was then escorted out of the building. I later received an email saying I did not get the position.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc. in January 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online and got a response pretty quickly from HR. Had an initial conversation with the hiring manager, mostly around what type of work I had been doing. Then talk to four people on the phone in one day as a final interview. I got the offer without going onsite, as I was out of state. Visa is just starting to build up its analytics department, so the level of sophistication still levels something to be desired.
Interview Question – Simple break-even analysis Answer Question
Reason for Declining – There are so many more rigorous places in the Bay Area. The pay and career development / mentoring dimensions of this job were pretty lacking.

Interview Details – Lots of people in very little time. All had different visions for what the position needed to do... should have recognized as a possible red flag.
Interview Question – How would you structure Information Risk Governance? (When I was being hired as an individual contributor and not the leader of the IRG group.) Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Visa Inc..
Interview Details – I started as a temp, and the Treasury Manager kept renewing my contract. When a job became open, I interviewed with the managers I already knew from temping. It was more a formality than anything, and was an easy process. Since, I have interviewed for other jobs within the company, without the luxury of knowing the manager. Nothing was too intense, just the general questions one would expect.
Interview Question – Usually the hardest question is "why do you want to work here?" You have to know what makes the place great, and what the manager likes/doesn't like about it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – When I was hired, I didn't negotiate, there was a salary for the job and I accepted.

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Visa Inc..
Interview Details – Two interviews - one with the direct manager in the US over the phone, and the other with the local site manager face-to-face. The one with the US manager was very brief - some questions on my work experience and CV, the rest of the time spent on explaining what is required from the role. With the local site manager, it was a longer interview but again, less time spent on work experience and more time on explaining the team structure. Some situational questions but nothing too challenging. Much easier interview process compared to International Banks.
Interview Question – How did you deal with a difficult situation in the past? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is some room for salary negotiation, but very little - Visa relies a lot on its brand name to attract people, and salaries offered are generally at market rate already.
