    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Visa Inc. in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had an horrible experience, essentially the recruiter kept scheduling interviews and kept rescheduling. Eventually I gave up on the process. This was an odd experience considering the recruiter reached out to me himself for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    My interview was conducted over the phone and consisted of purely technical questions. The interviewer spoke softly and had a rather thick accent, which I don't hold against him but ultimately made every one of his utterances extremely difficult to understand. After this interview I was explicitly told that I'd be contacted with my results within 3 weeks, but Visa neglected to ever contact me. On top of this, Visa seems to have no consistency in how they conduct their interviews. I say this because I personally know people that had Visa phone interviews around the same time that I did, but their experiences were drastically easier and favored behavioral questions over technical.

    Senior Business Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (London, England (UK)) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of 3 separate 1 hour interviews with HR and with 2 members of senior management. It was clear they were going through the motions despite me having the exact qualifications and experience to move in to this position. No feedback was given to HR by the 2 senior managers, HR took 6 weeks to notify me that I had not passed to the second round and their criteria for selection who went to the second round were based on one person only - very poor technique and very amateurish.
