    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Visa in Europe in February 2013.

    Interview

    First I had a telephone interview with someone from the HR department. The interview lasted around 15 minutes and it was pretty straight forward with typical HR related questions.

    Then a second telephone interview was arranged, this one was 30 minutes and it was mainly technical questions.

    One of the guys was a lead software engineer and he had a very strong indian accent. It was a conference and the other guy (a senior team manager) had to repeate some of the questions that were asked by the lead software engineer as sometimes it was very difficult to understand. In one of the questions I answered that EJB was part of J2EE but he didn't agree with this and was questioning my knowledge on the matter - without reason... I just had to agree at the end even knowing he wasn't right! Some of the questions were nonsense in my humble opinion.

    Another important thing to mention is that there was a considerable time between each interview or e-mail contact from them - 3-4 weeks! The process is extremely slow, so this is something people should take into account if they are actively looking for a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visa in Europe (London, England) in October 2014.

    Interview

    This entailed two interviews in total:
    - 0.5 hours phone interview with HR (this was more of an introductory interview)
    - 1.5 hours face to face interview with two hiring managers (this included a presentation which I had to prepare beforehand, technical questions, HR-related/behavioral questions, questions about my background and CV)

    A couple of days after the face-to-face interview I had an offer.

    Analytics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied and recruiting team got in touch saying they would like to set up a call. I provided times and telephone number and heard nothing back. Chased many times and got an occasional half-baked email asking for availability. Job is now no longer available which is a real disappointment. I get the impression that the recruiting teams lack any real organisation and I’m applying from a Big Four firm.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Visa in Europe.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by recruiters. They passed on my CV to VISA Europe.

    I then had to perform an online assessment. One of the test was a Logical reasoning test, the other an aptitude test involving the comparison of strings under time pressure.

    Then an interview at their offices in London.
    General competency based questions, and a scenario exercise which focused heavily on multi tasking.

    Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visa in Europe (London, England) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied directly online from the company's website. First received a call from HR, followed by verbal and numerical online tests. Scored high on both and then being invited to an assessment day where they put you on a role play, priority for work test, followed by the actual interview. Their interview process is complicated and dont expect someone to answer your questions after the first few minutes after the tests start. They were unhelpful during the whole interview. Their interview tests at the assessment day was not effective at all, I agreed with emloyees who rated low for this company. Would not recommed this company for anyone even for an interview as there is no experience to gain from, absolute waste of time...

    Interview Questions

    • The tests at the assessment day were difficult, even if you are prepared, you wont complete these tests within a short time and dont expect an answer if you have a question about the tests. Apart fro the tests, the usual interview questions were: Tell us why you applied for this role, what do you believe you can bring in to our team, what are your weaknesses, have you ever wanted to achieve something and failed in your previous jobs, give examples...   Answer Question
