Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Richmond, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capital One in March 2014.

Interview Details – Very structured interview process. Applied through campus recruiting and was later selected for a phone case interview. I passed the case (found out in under 24 hours) and was invited to interview in Richmond. The Richmond interview consisted of two cases and a behavioral interview. I was then asked to stay for an additional case interview. I received an offer in <24 hours.

The case interviews are unlike consulting interviews; they are more straightforward and usually have a specific quantitative answer. The behavioral interview was very structured; I was given a list of possible questions a day in advance, and three questions were selected from that list.

Overall, I felt very welcome; the recruiters and interviewers were all very friendly.

Interview Details – First round interview on campus: easy case interview which measures math competency. Was then invited to second round interview. They flew me to their offices and had a 6 hour interview process. 2 cases, 1 behavioral, lunch, and an additional interview after lunch.

They go out of their way to make you comfortable. It was an extremely pleasant process and not overly stressful.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected, all cases were based off of past projects that capital one has worked on.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Capital One.

Interview Details – On-campus interview. It was my first quant case interview, let alone any case interview. My background is mostly in project management an software development. My interviewer told me "the first is always the most fun", and we did end up having a pretty fun interview. I thought out loud, asked the right questions, and squeezed as much data out of him as possible on which to base my decision. Being a quant case, I had to set up some mathematical functions to figure out some finance stuff (profitable/unprofitable), but other than that, it was mostly thinking about smart business practices and decisions. I got decent verbal and gestural feed back from my interviewer, which was nice. Right around the end, my interviewer said that I gave a good solution, and I got a chance to ask him questions about the company. I enjoyed the experience very much.

Interview Question – I would rather not reveal the specific case, but I will say that it was an unprofitable business venture (which I had to first discover) that I had to turn profitable through a series of numbers-based decisions.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Offer at another company fit my career goals better at the time.

Interview Details – There was an on campus case interview which wasn't too hard,. very similar to the practice one on their website. Then they flew/paid for gas for you to go to their office for a "super day" kind of thing. Once there we had to do 3 case interviews and 1 behavioral interview which was the easiest thing ever

Interview Question – all of the questions were straightforward if you are good at math. feel free to ask them how credit cards (or whatever the subject of the question is) actually work and they're happy to explain. as long as you know how to do math once they tell you how the problem is structured you'll do fiine   Answer Question
