    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Handed a recruiter my resume during a career fair, and received a phone call that evening. First interview was on campus. Very professional interview, but not too formal. I actually thought I did pretty poorly. Received a congratulatory email about a week later, and was then was flown out to San Antonio HQ for dinner and second interview. The trip was pretty amazing, and the overall impression I got from the company far surpass my expectations. Was told that I would be contacted with in two weeks, and would be told if I got the job or not. I think that pretty professional, because most companies would not be so courteous. It's coming up on two weeks soon, and have yet to hear from them. Hopefully that's a good thing and I get an offer. There's no doubt I would be happy to take it! I'm going to say no, that I didn't get an offer, because they don't give you a still waiting option on this website.

    Interview Questions

    • If you are like me already on this site before your interview, then you don't need any more help with the questions. Just be prepared to think on your feet, and not freeze up. The second round of interview are more open ended, and I think that was were I could have done better. I would still say my second interview was better than my first though.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of the following events in this order: Arrive at USAA Visitor's Lobby (8am), Breakfast (8:15am), Executive Welcome Address (8:30am), Situtational Interview (9am), Technical Interview (11am), Candidate Benefits Presentation/Lunch (12:15pm), Nexus/Aspire Presentation (12:30pm), IT Department Overview (1:15pm), USAA Building Tour (2pm), Transportation to Aiport (3:30pm).

    I enjoyed the whole day, the only real serious part was the technical interview. The rest of the day was just fun! Even the Situational Interview was fun. Of course, you do have to behave like a professional, but the environment is very welcoming at USAA.

    Interview

    First I did an interview with a recruiter at a job fair. This interview took about an hour. I was then called back for an onsite interview in Plano Texas. The night we arrived for the interview, we went out to a nearby restaurant with employees and other interviewees in the group. At the onsite interview we did a group process interview to see how we worked with others, and then a more technical interview with a manager.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process itself was not bad. I had one interview on campus and another at their headquarters in San Antonio. They paid for travel expenses and had a number of tours and informational sessions along with the three on-site interviews. This process was fine and it was nice to see the campus and tour it, although I think some of the events lasted a bit too long.

    However, the people who were given as contact points for questions after the on-site interview were very unprofessional. I had another offer come in and inquired to the status of my application and was told that USAA knew they wanted to make me an offer but they needed a bit longer to get things together. I was told I would hear from them no later than two business days. Two weeks later, I had not heard anything and no one had contacted me or returned my emails/call (one or two emails and one call, so nothing crazy).

    Finally, I hear from them about three weeks after they had said I would in a generic auto-generated rejection email. I found it incredibly unprofessional that they "verbally" gave me an offer only to end up sending me a rejection letter over three weeks after the date they gave me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at USAA (Omaha, NE) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward. Met them at a job fair, did an initial interview, had a second group interview at dinner that night after the fair. A few days later I got a call that they were going to fly me to San Antonio for a final round of interviews, received an offer in about a week and a half. Accepted offer. It was all very straightforward. They like to test your ability to work with others, so if you know how to interact in a group that is very helpful. Most questions were not even related to the job, they were about your ability to learn and fit in with their corporate family. They may give you some brain puzzles like in a group fill out a really hard sudoku puzzle, they don't care how you do on the puzzle so much as how you interact with your group and work together to achieve best possible outcome.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in April 2010.

    Interview

    You'll have one initial interview with a recruiter (usually at a recruiting event/conference, college campus, phone, etc) and if that goes well, you'll be flown to San Antonio for a full interview. You'll spend the day being shown the campus, learning about USAA's history and culture, clubs and organizations within the company, and have a closed interview, usually with 2 employees. Because this is a college hire position, the interview is less technical and more personality-based, as they want to see how well of a culture fit you'll be. They'll generally assess technical competence in the context of your answers. Time will vary on how long it takes to hear back, but they'll contact you whether it's a yes or a no.

    Interview Questions

    • There's a logical, mathematical or brain-teaser type question, which may throw you off after an interview of being assessed based on your personality. You may feel like you have to answer this question exactly right, but don't worry so much about getting the correct answer -- they're more so looking for what kind of analytical, thought process you go through to get to the answer. And this is one of those things where you either have it or you don't.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    For this particular position, because it's entry level, you'd have less room for negotiation. For a position where you're coming in with experience, particularly skills that USAA has high demand for, negotiating is encouraged.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for a full-time position through a University job fair. I signed up for an on-campus interview the next day. The interview was about 30 minutes long. It was very casual. They asked 3 problem-solving questions. The first one is a logic puzzle in which they ask you to put things in order (B comes before A, C must come last, D is not second, etc....). The other two questions were design problems. How would you design an online ap with certain features. These questions are designed to test your problem solving abilities as well as your creativity. The questions are timed. The rest of the interview was asking about experience and projects.

    I was contacted about 2 weeks later and invited to San Antonio for second round interviews. They treated us very well. All the plans were made by a coordinator (air, hotel, most of the transportation). It was nice that I didn't have to worry about anything. And they repaid me for the ride from the airport to the hotel.

    They put us up in the Omni hotel right on the river walk. It was a great room. They took us all to dinner at the hotel restaurant that night. It was a fabulous meal. There were several employees there to interact with us. The point of the dinner was to put us at ease and give us a chance to ask all the questions we wanted. It was a nice evening.

    The next morning a bus picked us up and took us to the headquarters where breakfast was waiting for us. They split the group (of 20) into two groups--morning interviews and midmorning interviews. While the first group was interviewing, the second group was given a quick tour and a benefits presentation. Then we swapped. The interview was the same as the first interview--except a little more involved. I met with two engineers who held the "tech" test and interview. They asked the same kind of questions--logic and problem solving. The interview lasted about an hour.

    After the interviews were over they fed us lunch. Then they gave us a tour of the full facility. It was very impressive. They collected our receipts for reimbursement. Had us fill out a little paperwork. Then gave us a ride back to the airport. Overall a very positive experience.

    Two weeks later I was offered a position. I was given two weeks to respond.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not an option but the process was very smooth and simple. The benefits package is fantastic.
