    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mastercard (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2010.

    Interview

    First had a phone interview. Then 2 were sort listed for F2F. All they were looking for is whether I knew the basic concepts of Java, Spring, Hibernate and GWT. Did well with all questions except GWT. Panel had 3 people including project manager and 2 tech leads. They made me very comfortable. Looked to be very good team to work with.
    But could not make it. Feedback was good, but they said since they were looking for only one person, they are taking the other guy, since he did well in GWT.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mastercard (Pune (India)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through the career portal. Got a call from the HR for a technical test. After completing the test. I was called for the F2F interview at MasterCard office. 1 round was a technical interview, which was easy. After that there was a managerial round where manager asked about experience and project. And told me that next round will be scheduled in next week with the senior manager through Skype. I did not get any response in next week and the HR did not respond after multiple followup emails. I got a call after one month that the interview is scheduled with the senior manager for next week. The senior manager asked about project and experience and explained me about the team and the work and the project i am supposed to work on. The interview was very positive. He told me that the HR will call me in next two days. I haven't got any call even after more than a month and the HR doesn't even care to respond to emails. Pathetic HRs. Worst Company.

    Interview

    As a senior software engineer, I applied for the same position of Mastercard Shanghai China.
    Everything seems going well. We talked about JVM, java concurrency & multi-threading, coding issues of Financial industry, iso8583.
    After I finished the technical challenge of LRU cache algorithm, HR came in and told me sorry that leader is not in Shanghai(interview with the leader has arranged in Email), so you can leave now ,and waiting for the result.
    One week later, I asked for the result, HR said sorry just wait for another week, and so on for 2 or 3 weeks , I just gave up.
    If I failed in the previous technical interview, it's OK to told me the truth instead of letting me waiting for weeks and got nothing. It's not easy for me to go onsite interview, for I came from another city.
