    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    My interview was conducted over the phone and consisted of purely technical questions. The interviewer spoke softly and had a rather thick accent, which I don't hold against him but ultimately made every one of his utterances extremely difficult to understand. After this interview I was explicitly told that I'd be contacted with my results within 3 weeks, but Visa neglected to ever contact me. On top of this, Visa seems to have no consistency in how they conduct their interviews. I say this because I personally know people that had Visa phone interviews around the same time that I did, but their experiences were drastically easier and favored behavioral questions over technical.

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

    Interview

    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.

They asked me some basic programming and data structures questions. If we know the concepts it will be easy to clear first round. They asked me some behavioral questions and some questions on resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter to arrange a 30-minute phone interview with an engineer, then invited to complete an online coding exercise. Invited onsite within a few days of the coding exercise for interviews, three 45-minute rounds of technical interviews with engineering staff. Interviewers seemed generally unhappy, and they asked vague questions and didn't provide much clarification when I asked for it. One interviewer was playing with their phone while I was telling him about myself. They took really long to get back to me.
