    Interview

    Absolutely unprofessional recruiting. I had been contacted by their recruiter on linkedin. I liked the role, so agreed to schedule a call. The recruiter didnt bother calling at all and the same happened in the next instance!! Totally unprofessional.

    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.

    Onboarding Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Visa in Europe.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn and got a response very promptly. First stage was a phone interview with HR which was more for Visa to explain the role a bit better and the chance to ask some basic questions about yourself. Very relaxed and informal, and just like a conversation with a friend.

    Second stage was a face to face interview with the hiring manager. Was asked to run through the CV and explain a few things here and there. It was all very professional with some quite tough questions about how you would deal with certain situations but nothing out the ordinary. This was an hour long and included a small test. It was nothing too technical, it tested more attention to detail rather than any pre-learnt skill.

    The final stage was another face to face interview with the hiring manager and a few people from the team. This was a much more relaxed atmosphere where you could talk freely about the role and expectations. It was more to make sure the candidate was comfortable with the role and to answer any questions I had. They were all very helpful and painted an honest picture of day to day responsibilities.

    After that, I was contacted with a job offer. The HR team were very professional throughout and were in constant communication about the progress of you job application. I felt that I was being looked after and things were moving quickly.

    The overall hiring process makes me believe that Visa hires only good strong candidates. It's great to know that your potential colleagues would have gone through the same vetting process so the building is filled with intelligent, hard working professionals!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Visa in Europe (Paddington, England).

    Interview

    Half hour phone interview followed up with 1.5 hour interview with team lead and manager. No particularly challenging questions, I got the impression they were satisfied with my experience and just wanted to evaluate whether I was a good fit or not.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual "what would you consider to be your biggest weakness" question - only difficult because I have a tendency to be honest when answering and I wasn't sure whether they'd appreciate that or not. Clearly they did.   Answer Question

    Negotiated an extra 10% above their offer.
