    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at the career fair. She emailed me a month later to schedule an OCR with a senior Enginer and the head director of engineering. I was interviewed on school for an hour and they were super nice. A week later HR called me and told me that I was accepted as an intern at visa. They gave me a relocating fee which was really generous.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview

    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.

    They take a lot of time after you attend the onsite interview to deliver the result.

    I guess Visa is growing its technology stack with a lot of young people. To be ahead of competitors they offer very good package which is considered one of the best.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Visa Inc. in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was told interview process would be two weeks but it took two months. Interview process was long, HR was unorganized. I had a phone screen by HR. Phone interview with Senior analyst. Panel interview with director and VP. Interviews went well everyone was really nice. I was told by the hiring manager a decision would be made quickly, but I never heard back. At least have the common courtesy after a long process to inform the applicant they did not get the job offer.
