Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in October 2010.

Interview

After an on-campus 1:1 interview with behavioral, situational and a logic question. I was flown to the headquarters. They hosted my group in a hotel by the riverwalk and we had a networking dinner. Next day consisted of a tour, drug test, presentations on the company and another interview. The second interview 2:1 was very much like the first with only one technical question and the rest being behavioral and situational.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with an IT employee at a Computing conference. The interview consisted of the usual behavioral questions and some thought provoking questions. There were also a couple of technical questions, dealing with database growth rates. A few weeks after the interview I was contacted for second round interviews at the San Antonio campus. They flew me out and put all the interviewees at the Omni. We had dinner that night then breakfast, interviews, and, a tour of the campus the next day. The interview was 2:1 and followed the same format of the first interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at USAA (Lubbock, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Initial interview was held at my university campus. A lot of behavioral questions, and a few technical and logic questions. They are very relaxed and want to get a feel for the type of person you are, because they are looking for people who will fit well into their company culture. Don't worry about answering their logic questions incorrectly - they are looking for your problem solving abilities rather than the right answer. The best thing to do is to walk through your steps after you've worked the problem, or talk it out as you're working through it.

    The hiring process was simple. They recruited on campus for first round of interviews. A second round of interviews was done on the USAA campus with 2 interviewees. It's the usual behavioral questions like "how would you handle a situation where this happen?" and then some more technical questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Initial contact started at a career expo where instead of waiting at their booth they sought out candidates. From there after a brief chat over the companies mission I gave them my resume and was sent on my way. They then contacted me a few weeks later for the initial on-campus interviews.

    The interview was with two IT managers and was primarily over my resume and three questions. One a mathematical logic question to test your reasoning, a second over a difficult situation I have had to deal with before between coworkers, and the last was a way to improve transportation within a company to eliminate the slowness of elevators.

    After that interview I was contacted for an on-site interview at their headquarters. They arranged for lodging at an area hotel. At the hotel we had dinner with 3-4 IT managers where we were able to ask questions about the company in general and get to know them a bit better. The next day we took a limo-van to their building where we awaited to be interviewed. The interview was once again with two IT managers and generally the same question with different situations involved. After that we got a tiny tour of the local buildings and then we got an overall tour of their entire location. After that we finalized some paperwork and were sent back on our ways.

    Interview Questions

    • I did not find much of their interview process to be difficult. I guess the part that they would find difficult is that since I come from a military background I tend to not question the situation and just work to improve it.   1 Answer
