Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY).

Interview

I found the job posting via career services at my school. Interviewed with 3 group heads. Mainly fit and each person described what their specific group does. I was asked mainly about my previous background and what my interests were. I was called a few days later by HR and asked which group I wanted to join, then I was given a formal offer to join the analyst program in the group of my choice.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Initial interview with two HR individuals at the school
    Contacted about in-person interviews in Purchase, NY
    Interviewed by 6 professionals, 30 minutes each, two different departments
    Offered a position two weeks later
    Accepted a month later

    People from different departments have different personalities. Seemed like they are still using cubicles for lower level employees, but conference/group work rooms are in every section. Location of office was very nice. Saw employees going out during lunch time and running around the campus. Seems like a good work/life balance. Hesitant about promotion/advancement opportunities.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus recruiting, followed with an onsite Superday. Interviewed with the leaders of all their product divisions and an employee from HR. Standard behavioral interview (Why mastercard, walk me through your resume, etc) -- since the interview is not terribly analytical or case based, make sure you know your answers thoroughly and have a compelling pitch for you're a good fit for the position. Research the products beforehand, come in with knowledge of the payments industry, possible competitors, and your own ideas. One brief case study for their prepaid division. Overall, very painless if you're well prepared and know what you're doing.

    Interview

    Just apply online and list out your skills required for the job. If you could get an employee referred. That would give you a leg up for sure. You many also seek out local recruiting companies for help. They might have a one on one relationship with the hiring manager.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was mostly behavioral so they mostly want to hear about what skills you acquired in previous work experience and how those are applicable to the current position. They did ask 1-2 analytical questions (e.g. market sizing).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Mastercard (Arlington, VA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    My first phone interview was with a person at their Tuscany, NY office to have an introduction to the company and the position. Afterwards, the second interview was with a manager of the team for the position i was applying for in the DMV area.

    I got stood up for the scheduled phone interview by said manager, so I tried contacting their HR but got no reply. Then at 6 PM the manager who i was supposed to talk to called me while i was out running errands asking for my availability to reschedule the interview. However, after i told him when i would be available later that week, he decided to have the interview right then and there. I was completely unprepared for an impromptu interview after business hours and honestly could not perform at my best. Needless to say the interview was pretty bad. The next day their HR finally contacted me telling me they were all out of office that day, and that the manager decided to move on to another candidate.

    I was not truly able to showcase my capabilities as I was busy during that time and the manager gave me no warning or asked for him to conduct the interview. I thought i should provide this constructive criticism to say that it was not only unfair to me, but also very unprofessional. If this is how a manager acts for a phone interview, I can only imagine how the work life is for working for Mastercard.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Mastercard in November 2018.

    Interview

    Applied during my summer internship, waited 3 months and heard back from HR. Had an initial 30 minute conversation with the manager. I then waited another month before a final round with the manager and two other department members. Upon not receiving the offer, I reached out for feedback and they were very cordial in explaining why I didn't get the position.
    Overall a decent process but very long and seemingly unorganized.
