    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me for a phone screen, and later with the manager of the team I will be working with at this role. I was finally offered an onsite opportunity to go into their HQ. The schedule was sent to me with a confirmed time and date. I was going to fly in from another city which they specifically told me that they are unable to compensate my travel expense.

    So i booked the ticket once I got the confirmation from Visa. A day prior to my onsite interview, the recruiter called me 7am in the morning, told me that the interview has got cancelled because the manager of the team is leaving and they are putting on hold this position. I thought it was a dream cause it was such early in the morning and it didn't sound real at all. The recruiter emailed me that they are still unable to provide compensation on my plane tickets that I already booked. I'm not gonna lie, but I feel fooled.

    Senior QA Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process is 3 steps. Online phone screen, hackerrank and onsite. Hackerrank is badly designed. Very random. Onsite interview was long. Team taking interview was average and I could tell they don't have much experience taking interview. Example on guy came in and asked how to calculate data center load using jmeter. Directors were obnoxious. They have been in the company for more than 10 years and expects candidate to have same domain knowledge as they have. Overall glassdoor reviews about Visa are accurate. it's a government company where people are hanging on to their positions. My feel from onsite interview was not a good company to work for. Recruiter was not professional as well. He said team liked you but we need to review other candidates before we take a decision. So what you expect from me? Wait? I moved on and took another offer :)

    Interview Questions

    • How to find duplicates in a string using hashmap. Simple sql queries. Jmeter, Rest API's, Selenium.   Answer Question

    Interview

    It was a very long interview process. I applied online in November 2016 was contacted in December and had 4 phone interviews in January. Then flew up for an all day with 3 of the people I would be interviewing for (who I had spoken to) and 3 additional people. In the end I was not offered the job. But I was okay with this as it seemed to a very corporate environment that was trying to change but that there were a lot of obstacles in place.
