I applied online and interviewed at Capital One.

Interview Details – There are 3 rounds of interviews. 1. recruiter telephone, basically introduce the company and the position and arrange the time for the next interview; 2. sr. manager telephone case interview 45 min.

Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst
Richmond, VA

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

Interview Details – Met at on-campus career fair and submitted resume. Resume was sufficient to earn a first-round interview on my university's campus. Passed that and was invited to an interview at their Richmond, Virginia location. They paid for my flight there and back and my meals. The interview day at Richmond consisted of 3 interviews - 2 case interviews and 1 behavioral. The behavioral was just like any other job interview. The case interviews consisted of math problems involving various topics from credit card rates to life insurance. The interviewer is there to help you through the problem with any questions, but it is important to keep your work organized and not get stuck in one area.

Interview Question – Case question about call times. Constantly translating numbers into minutes or hours was a little confusing, but not too bad.   Answer Question

Principal Operations Analyst Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in May 2014.

Interview Details – After the initial case study over phone, I was called to Richmond for a day long process. The arrangements were excellent, from flight reservation to hotel to transportation.

The interview day had 4 interviews- two behavioural and two case studies. I think I underestimated the behavioral interviews and did'nt go well prepared. The 1st case study on reward points was quite tough and I screwed it up under pressure. The second one on call center was easy though and I think I nailed that.

But obviously, you need to do well in both the case study as well as the behavioral.

So, prepare hard for behavioral, practice your responses with your friends/ well-wishers and ask if your responses sound convincing.

I did not make it but I thought I got a fair chance.

Interview Question – The case study on rewards points. I am not allowed to disclose the questions.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Capital One in April 2014.

Interview Details – 1 phone interview - case interview.

Interview Question – Phone case interview: The company has an online document centre which keeps track of all of the info about its customers. We offered our customers a free option to enroll in e statements and stop receiving paper statements. The enrollment numbers are below our expectations. We want to launch a marketing campaign. What are some of the factors that you would consider to design such a campaign? List them and briefly explain.

Now, I have some data for you. The marketing dept has determined that it would send across 150,000 emails to customers based on two different strategies. Each email costs 25 cents and the lifetime savings for each customer enrolled will be $20. For the first strategy, the customer receives a one time statement credit of $15 and under the second strategy, the customer receives a credit of $5. Which strategy would you prefer and why?

When asked about response rates, the interviewer gave response rates of 15% and 10% for the two strategies.
