    Difficult Interview

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mastercard (United States) in Oct 2020


    First round was a back to back behavior + case. I was given a interview buddy to help me prepare. Final interview was back to back hour-ish behavior + case with 2 on each call. All virtual due to Covid.
