    Senior Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    I work in New York and applied for a position in Singapore as I was looking to move to Asia. I had an initial HR screen on phone and then 3 more interviews on phone - 2 business leaders and 1 HR leader from Asia. The interviewers were very nice and friendly. Phone interviews can be challenging but they went really well. The questions were about my background, why Visa, why the role, fit assessment, etc. There were no technical questions and I thought I had done quite well. Got great feedback from all the interviewers.

    I followed up 2 weeks after initial interviews and I got a reply saying I wasn't selected for the final round as they thought even though I had good experience, when it came to business advisory experience, knowledge of the Asia region etc there were other stronger candidates. I was surprised to hear that as I was not asked a single question about either of the above topics so the judgement was made without actually testing those much.

    In the end it felt a bit disappointing as I felt I wasn't given a fair shot.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the post through the Visa, Inc website. A couple of days later, I received a call from a recruiter at Visa who scheduled me for a phone interview. The same recruiter conducted the phone interview two days later. She asked me very basic questions based on my resume. Asked me to describe what I did at my previous job. Asked a couple of more detailed questions based on my answers. When asked what the next step would be if I cleared this interview, she replied that there would be one more phone interview by a hiring manager, who will decide whether I'll be called in for an in-person interview.

    Data Entry Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Ashburn, VA (US)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    I worked with a recruiter to secure an interview, so my representative scheduled everything from that perspective. I arrived early, got through security easily, and was able to wait in the lobby prior to the interview. I interviewed with a single person for almost the entire time and had a second interviewer during the last ten minutes. With the first interviewer, the tone was mostly serious and the questions were rapid-fire, but this individual provided a good deal of insight into the position. The second interviewer was more relaxed and asked more general questions, along the lines of "getting to know you". It took about forty-five minutes overall.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I received was, "What do you think you'll be doing in this position?" My recruiter's description of the position was vague and over-simplified compared to what it actually involved. I also interpreted the job posting differently, so I felt caught off-guard by this question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The Recruiter handled all salary negotiations. This was frustrating, as they offered no transparency into the actual negotiation and I feel that I was under-compensated based on what other employees were making in lesser-qualified positions.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Visa Inc..

    Interview Details

    Int-ital communication via LinkedIn and was contacted by a TA to my mobile , spoke about the role etc .
    After the phone call was sent an email invite for a face to face interview.

    On the day of face to face interview.

     I was ill on the day of interview , I went for it.

    They asked me to go through my resume with them. But I couldnt do in detail because I was coughing and feeling very weak.

    I kinda sense that i would not be selected , but if i were on their shoes i would at least give one more chance for next interview.

    Not only that I also wished that they would inform me if i was not selected.

    I had to call up to check after one week of the interview and they replied me that the team manager is not back from his trip so they cannot decide yet.

    so after waiting for another 2 more weeks , I called them up again to check the status as i have not received any update from them.

    They just replied me saying that you are not selected!

    I asked the reason , they felt that i might not be able to handle the volume of work and they have already found someone else.
