    Senior Product Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Visa Inc. in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    1) HR calls & gives a brief background of the position 2) No communication for about 4 weeks before a sudden email from the scheduling team for a phone screen with the hiring manager 3) After the phone screen you will be puzzled by the silence for another 4 weeks after which i got an email on a Saturday morning for my availability for an onsite interview .

    One of the most important observations that i had is - the culture seems to be extra casual (rather non existent ) , people are carefree , disinterested and slow . The interviewers were totally not interested in the interview , they were more concerned about where i stay , how i reached the venue etc . This totally turned me off .

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visa Inc..

    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.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Visa Inc. in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR contacted for initial screening. Had a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager after a few weeks. Heard back after 2 weeks that I am being invited for in-person interview on campus. A total of 6 people from the team interviewed me. Everyone sounded very positive. Hiring manager informed that I would know within 2 weeks. What was ridiculous was I never heard either ways even after 5-6 weeks. I followed up with the HR and hiring manager several times. The worst was that they kept telling me they were interested but never made an offer. Extremely slow. HR seems a little clueless as to what the next steps are. They are not prompt in responding. From my experience the whole experience took more than 10 weeks and still I dont have an answer. Decided to pursue another offer in hand.
