Associate Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in O'Fallon, MO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mastercard (O'Fallon, MO) in December 2015.

Interview

I had back to back interviews, first with the gentleman who would be my boss, and then with the gentleman who was his boss. Very friendly, I was very comfortable the entire time. They had two people (who are now my coworkers) sit in on the interviews which helped the process be more personal without being uncomfortable. I did not at all feel intimidated, and that really helped me to have a smooth interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mastercard (O'Fallon, MO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed on the phone with three others. The job was in a room with about six people. The most senior person within that room was the manager and he, another manager, and their manager were on the phone interview. They asked a couple personality questions such as what was your last interaction with an authority figure like and what kind of experience do you have working in a group. The technical question was whether or not I was familiar with SQL, shell scripting, and if I had heard of awk, to which I replied yes and talked about what I did with each a little. They kept the small talk tight and got down to business with me after a bit of ho-humming with each other. They did say they were just looking for boots to put on the ground.
