Interview

Waste of time. The interviewer didn't pay attention from the first word we spoke and interview was over within 15 minutes. He asked me to go over the resume, asked some fit & behavioral questions. Discussing strengths & weaknesses. Complete waste of mine and their time, demonstrates the company culture?

    Interview

    Initial interview was weak, more like phone screen to check my communication skills, did not ask any challenging questions. Asked basic questions related to where I see myself in CAPCO, how much I knew about the company. Also gave a brief background on CAPCO, their focus, and the kinds of opportunities they have open

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Capco (New York, NY).

    Interview

    HR reached out to me about a interview day they were having. Capco has been having these superdays alot lately. Literally 3 a week since December 2012. Initial, convo with HR was going thru the resume. Pretty much wanted to make sure you can communicate verbally. At the interview day, I met with 4 people - a mix of managers, senior consultants and principals. There was no case study, but I think that was only because I carried myself as a consultant; being confident, not cocky and speaking the lingo. Went thru my resume with each one and highlighted PROJECT MANAGEMENT related skills. Make sure to highlight these especially if you dont have experience within consulting before. Since they are hiring like crazy, I got a call back a few days later with an offer. Push to be apart of the CAP program training. Its good experience for those w/o consulting exp.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Generally speaking your first call will be a 'smell test' with recruiting and then you may be brought in to meet with 2-3 individuals at at least the Senior Consultant level. The questions and process is fairly standard and straight-forward. Prepare yourself with the interview basics- have your resume on hand, do your research about the company, and know what you are looking for in your next role. The questions are basic "describe team experiences, win/losses, strengths/weaknesses, etc'. Each round will be 30 minutes or so. Younger candidates will most likely require a "Super day" of sorts that involves group interviews and tasks. Don't be a jerk and you'll be fine.

    Interview Questions

    • Unless the interviewer is going off-script or you're being examined for a very specific role, there shouldn't be any surprises in the process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is a little flex in salary band.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an telephone screening interview, 3 CV based interviews with HR, partner and managing principal and a case study presentation interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The partner interview was a quick fire questions looking to do a CV run through that seemed to try and unsettle, it didn't leave much space for interaction and was about capco ticking boxes. Had I received an offer it would make me question why capco didn't try and sell the company more.   Answer Question
