Visa Application Process
Online application form
Final interview or assessment centre
The application process for professional roles at Visa consists of several stages, starting with completing an online form. If candidates pass this first review, they then take online aptitude tests, followed by a telephone interview, a technical challenge if relevant for the job role, and then onto the final stages of face-to-face interviews and/or an assessment centre.
Visa online application form
The first part of the Visa application process is completing a simple online form which can be found on the Visa website or via the Visa LinkedIn company page. Along with the form, you can also submit a CV or LinkedIn profile to support your application. The application form is only one page long, so every word counts.
Once submitted, the form is reviewed by the Visa recruitment team, who decide whether you are suitable to continue in the process.
Visa Aptitude Tests
If you are successful with your initial online application, you move to the online testing stage of the process.
Visa use online tests as a way of finding out more about you, beyond your academic ability or what can be discussed during an interview. This assessment is done with a series of psychometric tests designed to assess your problem-solving skills skills, decision-making capabilities, behaviours, personality traits and general aptitude.
These aptitude tests present various scenarios or situations that reflect real workplace experiences, to see how you react and behave under challenging circumstances. The results give the employer an idea of how you might perform in a particular job role or work within the existing team, to help determine whether you are a good fit for the company.
Visa phone interview
Candidates that are successful at the online test stage move on to telephone interviews. A telephone interview gives the recruiters a chance to speak to you for the first time, to start getting to know you on a more personal level.
The convenience of a telephone interview means you can attend from anywhere in the world, and your call time may be influenced by the time zone of your interviewer.
Typical questions might include asking you to tell them more about yourself and why you want to work for Visa, and how you would behave or react in certain situations.
