    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Capital Group in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with HR, then a face-to-face with the Sr. Mgr. then 3 more interviews including a panel interview. The questions were standard nothing to hard, they told me about the company, the job and basically I told them about my experience. After the last interview it took them almost a month for any type of update, I contacted them but still didn't get a reply until 2 weeks later I received an email that I wasn't chosen.

    Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    I first had a talk with the recruiter and then I went in for an in office interview. I had three separate interviews. A lot of behavioral questions were asked, but were easy to answer. Some of the questions asked seemed repetitive and just worded differently. What I did not like about this interview was that more time was spent asking me all the questions and there was little time for me to ask my own questions or even get a sense of the company. The people I interviewed with were so up tight and very hard to talk to.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were the general behavioral questions that you will typically see on any website that has a list of behavioral questions.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I did get the job, but I declined because I didn't get a good vibe from the people I interviewed with. Also, seems like this job is very demanding on a day to day basis.

    Lengthy and extremely stressful. It felt as if the interviewers were not prepared or had already made up their mind on another candidate and this was just part of the process.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was long and took a few months over several rounds. If one person doesn't like you, you are out (so I have since heard). It began with a phone interview, then a skills test and meeting with HR, then a few 1:1 or group interviews with various people from the team.

    It was very tough to negotiate salary or anything, really. They have great benefits, so this is what they use as leverage.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    2 phone interviews followed by an in-person consisting of three separate interviews with 2 interviewers each. The entire process was fairly quick. Probably not even a month in total. Pretty flexible on start date but not so much on compensation. Their comp package that they offered was pretty solid though so I didn't have much of a problem when they only came up a little bit on their initial offer.

    Client Reporting Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capital Group in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process with Capital Group was the most professional I have ever experienced. I applied online and initially did not hear back for 5 weeks. However, once contacted by a recruiter, the process was relatively quick. I first had a phone interview followed by an on-site 1 on 1 interview two days later. The next week, I had a panel interview on-site. The questions in all interviews were behavioral and situational, so I would recommend having MANY scenarios prepared, as questions were shot off one after another. From there, I waited 2 weeks to receive a formal offer. I have nothing but good things to say about dealing with Capital's recruiter and HR contact. I highly appreciated that they respected my time in constantly keeping me up-to-date during the entire process. Very professional and organized environment from the start!

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Capital Group in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview asking brief questions such as why I wanted to work at Capital Group and what kind of salary I was expecting. Relatively short and straight-forward.

    Next step was a video chat/Skype interview. This one was more extensive and asked questions about past work experiences as well as gave me a broader overview of the Customer Service job to which I was applying.

    Final step was an in-person interview. There were two interviewers; one human resources employee and one customer service team leader. They asked many of the same questions as the video chat interview. After the interview, they gave me a tour of the Capital Group campus.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask a lot of questions involving past situations or experience. For example, "Tell us about a time when you had to handle a tough customer and how you handled it."   Answer Question

    Internal Wholesaler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Capital Group who found my resume on Indeed.com. There was an initial phone screen that wasn't much of anything. I then had two phone interviews with HR. General HR questions. The second one was more in depth. Both were about 30 minutes. The following week they flew me out to San Antonio (all expenses paid, flights, hotel, car, pretty good deal) for face to face interviews. I spent about 4 hours in their office. First was a 30 minute tour of the office/Q&A, followed by three interviews that were an hour each. The first was with HR, second two were with managers in my department. Extremely thorough and in-depth process. If you can think of it, they probably asked it.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a scenario in either an academic or professional experience where you were faced with a significant challenge. What was it, how did you plan to overcome it, and what was the result (they asked for a second example after).   Answer Question
