    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mastercard.

    Interview

    Phone screen from the intern HR rep. After I answered a few questions about myself, I was offered a chance to speak with the hiring manager.

    The phone interview with the hiring manager was good. For some reason, my ATT service kept dropping in and out, so I had to explain myself multiple times. The Manager and I were able to laugh it off and continue the convo. Received an offer a few days later.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations.
