    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Fair. There seems to be a bias toward hiring experienced people from outside Visa. Particularly helpful is experience in payments through an FI or merchant. People doing the interviewing really have no expertise in evaluating someone's skillset.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    6 different people interviewed me one on one, three onsite in person and three by phone but all concurrently within a 2 day period. It was for a UAT lead position and two of the interviewers would be my colleagues (same job function), two were from the QA group, and two represented requirements analysis. They were all trying to get a feel for how I would be to work with for their respective roles.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Initial phone call w/ recruiter and then the hiring manager. Never heard back. Still have not. - it's been 6 weeks. The job posting is closed. If a candidate allocated time for the interviews, an email would have been the least Visa could do to notify the candidate. Lack of professionalism in the HR process. Disappointing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview

    I applied on-line, shortly after I received a call from a recruiter that had set up a phone screen with the hiring manager. The interview was pleasant and the following week I received via e-mail a link to two different on-line test which candidates were required to take to move forward in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview itself was fine, the third party on-line test had some strange questions, such as GBLT in the workplace and if you have religious views that different than someone at work, and the statements had no place for an "it depends answer" - forced answers into agree and disagree.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    This was one of the worst interview experiences I have ever had. It took two months of going back and forth with the hiring manager to determine the scope and level of the position. I ended up helping her set the appropriate level of the role as she really didn't seem to have a handle on industry standards. Then when I finally went in I met with several BU leaders who seemed sharp but was then put in a conference room with about 8 of the team members I would be leading. The room was full of anxiety and I spent an hour fielding very awkward questions about what I would change and if I would keep everyone on board. I was told this was a final interview and that I would get word within a week or two. NO ONE EVER FOLLOWED UP WITH ME. After more than four months of interviews and conversations I NEVER received a call with my final decision. I felt this was completely unprofessional but since I had decided I did not want to step into such a dysfunctional team I just moved on. Five months later I started getting calls from head hunters about the job, apparently it is still open. Good luck filling that.
