Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
Richmond, VA

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Capital One in February 2014.

Interview Details – The gentleman who came for my behavioral interview wore a shirt with a big stain on it and one button broken. He asked me 2 situations that I've genuinely never faced in my life, and when I told him so he seemed disappointed and said 'well can you think of something, I've to write details on this form'. So I gave him the best possible answers and he went on to furiously write down every word I was saying. In the 40 min interview he filled out 3 A4 size pages! He was less involved in what I had to say and seemed to want to get rid of 'interview duty'. I then had a case interview with a lady who I feel mislead me in my case causing me to make a mistake. Case interviewers are supposed to guide you because it helps ascertain if you're trainable. When I tried to retrace my steps she said we've run out of time (though we started late) and left. My other case interviewer was very good and was the only positive experience I had at the company.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary   Answer Question

Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
McLean, VA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in October 2012.

Interview Details – Power day:They made me drive to McLean even though I was applying for a role in Richmond and they do Power Days there as well.
A few cases studies involving solving a business problem. The idea is to show how you can do the math as well as see why each iteration in the problem yields a contradictory answer.
Behavioral interview. "Tell me about a time where..." etc. If you know the SOAR method, you should be fine.

Interview Question – Some very specific job skill related questions such as: Do you know the difference between a left join, inner join, and outer join?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Instead of the higher salary, I was given a large signing bonus. That actually worked out for the best since I wasn't there long enough to accumulate the gains from a higher salary.

Senior Data Analyst Interview

Senior Data Analyst
Richmond, VA

Interviewed at Capital One

Interview Details – Standard 2 behavioral and 2 case studies. One of the behavioral interviews consisted of a conversation (be sure to make it a conversation and ask questions) about what type of job/work you would enjoy best.

Interview Question – Many suggest the book "Case in Point", and those cases are certainly good. This is a heavily numbers-focused study, so be sure to brush up on financial accounting.   View Answer

Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Capital One in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online. Two months later I received an email from the HR regarding my interest in having an interview with the hiring manager. There were not any behavioral questions from HR. For instance, I started talking directly with the hiring manager. All I can say I was about to hang up. The interview was very unprofessional. I am not sure this person knew what he had to ask. For instance, he asked a very unrelated questions about IT architecture data.

Interview Question – There were not difficult questions. I was just completely frustrated for the lack of formality in the interview. If it were not enough, at the very end I asked this person what would be next step "I do not know, you should contact the HR, he may know about it".   View Answer
