    I worked at USAA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and focuses on work life balance

    Cons

    When short term problems would arise management would make drastic changes and take away from long term solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Please put a focus on long term company goals rather then focusing on short term issues that arise.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at USAA (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Sent in resume, one interview on campus, heard back the same day. During the interview, they asked me a broad question like, "Why USAA?" Be prepared for this question and have a reason why you want the job, why you want to work at USAA, ect. Other questions were to test knowledge for the job.
