    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Visa Inc. in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Visa Inc. in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Visa was at a career fair I attended, and they had a signup sheet for an on-campus interview the next day. I signed up, showed up to the interview, and talked to the engineer. The interview was a mix of very basic technical questions, very stereotypical behavioral questions, and a software design question. I didn't hear back from them after the interview.

    Interview Details

    Mainly Behavioral. Nothing was unexpected and the interviewer was really nice and encouraging! It was more like an informal conversation and liked the whole process! I was given the interview on the day of my career fair and had my interview the next day. Overall, it went pretty smooth I believe.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Visa Inc. in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I gave them my resume at a seminar hosted by them. They called me back about 2 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. It's a very technical phone interview that you really must prepare for, or at least with the engineer I was set up with.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview contained a lot of questions about the mobile device I coded a lot of my side projects on, a lot of them would be difficult questions for an inexperienced mobile developer, so you must really know the architecture of that if that's where you interview revolves around.   Answer Question
