    Anonymous Employee in Purchase, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    be wary. I think they are mainly seeking very young candidates. They first interviewed via phone than 1:1. The surroundings and building are beautiful, but when I peaked into the office area, they have what looks like very long tables and they put 3 people at a table. no privacy or place to work.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed through my university's career services' on campus recruitment processes. I heard back from MasterCard within two weeks after my interview with them for the Summer Internship. The first round took place on campus and the second round took place over the phone, though I heard that if you live near their Purchase HQ they will bring you into the office.

    The first part was relatively easy, generic questions about personal background, resume, work experience, expertise.
    The second part of the interview was mostly focused on marketing and specific skills related to the division.

    In conclusion: Some technical marketing questions, mostly behavioral.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I got the first round interview through on campus recruiting. The interviewer was very nice and relaxed and encouraged me to be more relaxed and personal. I could only think of two strength and one weakness but she didn't push the second weakness hard. She saw me thinking and then she just proceeded to the next question. I heard that MasterCard has a great 9-5 work life balance so I told her that this is one of the reason why MasterCard is great but she was like oh we are more similar to traditional consulting so we are special and we work long hours.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard (Purchase, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process is very slow. HR is the gatekeeper. The first step is a phone screen with an HR recruiter. If successful, you will have a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. They will likely select only a few candidates to get through to the next round which would involve meeting with several people on the expanded team. HR has a mixed record with providing updates, feedback or any subsequent information
