    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. in February 2017.

    Interview

    Technical phone interview was good, coding challenge was very difficult. 7 questions: 3 coding questions, 4 multiple choice questions. All coding questions were dynamic programming questions. One of the questions did not make sense and I explicitly stated to the recruiter afterward my concerns with the question asked and that I did not understand and would like some clarification if possible. Did not receive anything except an email stating I would not be moving forward.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Visa Inc. in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on Oct 13, 2016, for the position of Intern - Software Engineering. Got a call only in Feb 2017. Sometimes it takes that long. The interview process was smooth. The first round was some algorithms and data structures questions for 30 mins. Next was an HackerRank challenge that people usually get. It had two questions. Finally, there was an interview with a senior director of a team where he tested concepts in many topics like Java, REST, databases, architectures, etc. Fair interviews, getting the call, however, is the key.

    Interview Questions

    • Duplicates in an array, string manipulation, microservices architecture, REST concepts   Answer Question

    Applied online in October. Got a hackerrank test in december, followed by three telephonic rounds. First telephonic interview was about technologies on the resume and basic knowledge testing questions such as design patterns, shell commands, multithreading concepts. Interviewer gave overview of what the team does. The second round was also technical, but was simpler than the first. Last round was HR. Basic behavioral questions. Overall positive experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (San Jose, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    3 stage process. First round was a phone screen. A general overview of what the company does and what position are you being interviewed for. Walk-through resume and projects listed on it. Some technical questions on technologies used in projects. Second round was a Hackerrank test - 1 hour 2 questions. One question was fairly simple on string manipulations, second was a tricky one. If you clear Hackerrank, final round is again a phone interview with upper management, which is more or less similar to first phone screen. Additionally, they ask you about your career goals to check if the job role is aligned or not.
    Note: Know your resume very well.
