Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Foster City, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc. in June 2012.

Interview Details – 30 min phone interviews with Recruiter and Hiring Manager. After initial phone interviews, half day at HQ for 30-minute in-person interviews with various team members. Very casual and professional business environment. Many questions were repetitive throughout the day. Be prepared for an array of questions from discussing hobbies/interests, career aspirations, and ideal work culture.

Interview Questions

  • Specific details about 5-year career goal: what you want to be, how you will get there but don't give a common generic answer of working hard and moving vertically to manager, director, etc.   Answer Question

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Foster City, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc. in March 2010.

Interview Details – After a phone screening with HR and the hiring manager, an all day interview was arranged. (2 weeks after the phone interview) It was your typical group interview and most of the questions were standard "cookie-cutter" types. The people were friendly but seemed stressed and overworked. It took several calls and e-mails to finally get a response/offer (another 3 weeks or so) The HR/Recruiter are not always very prompt in getting back to you so be persistent.

Interview Question – Be prepared for Industry-related questions like "How does Visa make money?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I countered their offer and got what I wanted. Do not accept a low offer if if it's more than your current salary. The hours are long so and promotions and salary increases take time at Visa,
