    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA).

    Interview

    Terribly slow recruiter. It was obvious they were not on top of things. Trying to set up a simple recruiter screening was a month of delayed responses, canceled schedules, followed up with no response to the point that I just gave up.
    This being the first interaction with a company, this reflects really poorly on them.

    Executive Recruitment Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with several people in one visit. Every interviewer was distracted, unprepared, and late. They all asked the exact same questions. Every single one. The most basic/generic questions. One interviewer texted and checked emails. One interviewer asked if I had experience, giving away she didn't read my resume. Most disappointing was the team leader. She left room to take a call! This was an unwelcoming team and dry interview.

Consisted of 4, 30-minute interviews. They told me before that there would be some case questions, but there were none. Called me a week later to say that I did not get the position.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at the career fair held at my university and I had separately applied as well. I got a mail scheduling 2 face-to-face interviews at the campus on the same day. The first face to face interview that lasted 30 - 45 minutes was a combination of basic Core Java questions which I had listed as my top skill and also a lot of behavioral questions. I prepared from the past intern experiences from glassdoor which was very helpful. The second face to face interview, I was asked about Spring and Maven which was required for that particular team for which I was being interviewed. Seeing I was not very familiar with those, I was asked a simple whiteboard question, which was the ransom note problem. The interviewer was very helpful and friendly and helped me optimise the solution. After this, I heard from them the next day itself, which was an invite for a hackerrank challenge. It was moderately difficult with 2 questions in 90 min. I got the result next day itself which was a last and final skype video call, in which I was asked about my projects on my resume, lots of sql, java questions, system design - to design a shopping site, questions about scalability, race conditions, and current projects at my university. Overall it was an easy interview that lasted another 30-45 min. I got the offer after a week.

    Interview Questions

    • Tech - Inheritance vs Composition, OOPs, Linkedlist vs Arraylist, String vs String buffer, Multithreading, Multiprocessing
      Behavioural - How would you resolve conflict with coworker, will you work 24x7, your long term goal, why should we hire you, how would you handle a negative client, describe a time you went over and beyond etc   Answer Question
