    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mastercard (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process is long, the first interview with HR was fair and objective, there were no trick questions but I didn`t receive any feedback for 4 weeks. The conversation took almost an hour and the professional was not invasive.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through online and got a call from recruiter for a initial phone conversation, later the recruiter scheduled a call with the one of the manager. This round went really well and interviewer is so friendly and he asked me about all my experience and questions about agile methodology we are following, some angular and react questions and also about the wireframing tools. I was so confident that they will call me for the next round. I tried reaching the recruiter almost for a month after my interview and then she responded back that she dint get any feedback yet and circle back to me asap, even then she dint respond me back and she took one more month to reply me saying that currently team is not looking for any one for that position . This looks so unprofessional on their side.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mastercard in June 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very disorganized and reflected on the nascent MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth in my eyes. I applied for the Manager position at the Center for Inclusive Growth early in the year and the talent acquisition team member contacted me in the summer for a screening interview. The Center seems to lack vision and direction as they suddenly wanted to talk about microfinance as innovative (in 2017?!) even though neither their page or the job post mentioned microfinance as a key function of the Center. Additionally, given the issues with microfinance as being anything but inclusive, it was surprising to me that they'd devote so much time to it rather than impact investing or more modern forms of financial inclusion. The process took 5 interviews over the course of 3 months and they even asked me to put together a presentation. One person canceled or changed the interview time on me 4X- once while I was sitting in the lobby! Although I was responsive to all their changes and confusion, they didn't respond when I asked them for feedback about why I didn't get the job at the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    Interview

    The interview mostly consisted of questions about my background and relating it to the job description. Some of the interview was spent talking about the position itself and what it entails. Since the position is an uncommon one to find the interviewer helped clarify how analysis is used in their HR department to inform hiring decisions.
