Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capco in November 2014.

Interview

Online application - resume and cover letter.
Round 1 interview with HR Analyst: had to reschedule couple of times because of changing schedules on both our ends, but were finally able to talk about a week after she first reached out to me for an interview. It was originally supposed to last 15-30 minutes but we went to almost 45 minutes. Talked about my background ("walk me through your resume") and my interest in finance, the program and Capco. Interviewer was very friendly, very personable, and was happy with my answers. Moved on to the second round (in person, 2 1-on-1 interviews with current consultants) - got asked behavioral questions mostly, resume walk through, and a brain teaser or two. They were happy, got asked back for 3rd round (Assessment Day) to take place in 2-2.5 weeks. About 20-25 other candidates, grouped into a few teams, fed breakfast and lunch with a case study, inbox challenge and rapid fire questions. Then lunch, Q&A with partners and associates and end of the day. Got an offer following week, early. Everyone at the company is very warm and welcoming, great to talk to casually or professionally. Candidates interacted a lot with partners who remembered our names and whatever tidbits about ourselves we told them it just felt way more welcoming and like "we want you" than any other company I've worked/interacted with. The flat hierarchy/open door policy idea they have is very tangible. Everyone's chugging the company Kool-Aid but in the least creepy/cult-y way possible.

Interview Questions

  • Whole rapid fire section had the most strongly mixed feelings - questions ranged from company specific to brain teasers to just random questions. Definitely felt the most stressed during that time but everyone enjoyed it (I didn't as much).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    There are two rounds of interview, first one is via telephone the second one is on-site interview at company's office in new york city. The telephone interview is 100% behavior interview, the HR kept asking me what I do in my current job. Also they asked something like why do you want to work for Capco, how do you know about this program, why are you interested in finance. The hr seemed to be very inpatient

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    First two interviews were phone screens where you speak with two different Capco employees. Very simple. Just walk them through your resume and sell yourself.

    Third interview was three - thirty minute interviews with different employees in their office. 10 candidates rotate between different people during interviews.

    Fourth round was Super Day. Final 25 candidates narrowed down to 10. Put in teams with other candidates for multiple case studies that you have to solve and present together. Also have "Quick Fire" round where you have 5 - five minute, individual interviews with different Capco employees.

    Interview Questions

    • If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?   Answer Question
    • Working with people you have never met before on case studies and having to present them was much more difficult than any other the questions I was asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Just sent an offer letter. Accept it.
