Position : Software Developer III
USAA Interview Process
I applied at USAA for the post of Software Developer III through my university. The process took about two weeks and a half and I was interviewed at USAA. There were a total of three interviews in the hiring process of USAA.
Round 1 - Campus Interview
Of course since it I applied through my university, the first round was the campus interview. The interview lasted for about an hour. The first half of the interview was based on the behavioral questions. They were all the basic questions and nothing difficult. The next half was partially technical and partially based on my college and projects. The overall interview was fine and nothing difficult.
Round 2 - On-Site Interview
When I was shortlisted, I was called in for an onsite interview. The first interview lasted for about two hours. The reason is because the interviewer went over the details of the position and gave a pretty elaborate description of the profile and how the company works. He explained me the vision of the company and how they are working to achieve that. Then there were some technical questions that were asked too.
Q1. Questions based on data structures.
Q2. Questions based on Strings.
Round 3 - Second On-Site Interview
There was a break for lunch before this interview. After lunch I had this round with another senior person. This round was majorly the same as the previous one. Same sort of questions were asked and there was more brief about the company and the vision. More details were given regarding the packages they offer. A few designing based technical questions were asked. This round focused more on the human resourced based questions.
Q1. What innovations will you like to make for the USAA's customer service program to improvise?
Q2. What is the best thing you like about the company?
Q3. If you get a better offer from another company, what will you do?
How to crack USSA Interview
I can't tell you anything about cracking the USSA interview precisely. This is because, I did not feel any definitive pattern for anything in the company. Things were pretty unorganized. Moreover, a lot of brief about the company was unnecessary. The interviews were long and nothing exceptional except the basic questions were asked. Thus, it will be quite helpful if you do a bit of efforts and revise your basics.
You don't have to be proficient in the details as before they move to that, you will find that the interviewer has moved to the human resources based questions. Thus if you see the overall hiring process, there is nothing difficult. All they need is a smart person and thus you need your confidence level the most. If you can maintain that, you are going to get through for sure.
