    Statistician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capital One in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    They scheduled a campus recruiting first, all about statistics questions such as what's confidence interval, p value, ANOVA, etc. I was also asked to design tests for randomization. The notice about onsite interview came the next day. There were 4 interviews-2 case, 1 role play and 1 behavioral. The first case was given you the required profit margin, asked about the market share, and whether the company should retrieve from the business. Plus, if the company decided to stay, what strategy could be employed. The second case was simple, basically understanding of statistics was enough. The hardest part for me is the role play. The model analyzed a problem of delayed flights. You had to understand the graphs and the model quickly and to prepare for a presentation to someone who pretended know nothing about stats. The problem for me was the time is limited and it was hard for me to organize my answer well. The behavioral question was typical.

It was me sitting down dressed up and recording my answers for most of the basic interview questions, with some essay parts that just asked what kind of hours can I work and describing why i'm fit for the job. Then about 3 days later got a call for a branch interview. Hoping for the best.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capital One in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Overall interview process wasn't too bad. First round was an on-campus case interview that requires some math problem solving as well as business insights for what drivers to different issues could be. The superday consisted of one behavioral and two more case interviews, with some people receiving a third case. Definitely a great day that lets you gain a lot of insight into the company and the culture of the Richmond office.
