    Client Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview that described the position, training, that no time could be taken off the first 12 weeks etc.

    I was called back to a second interview where it took around 3 1/2 hours. It started with a tour of the campus where they show and tell you about how wonderful it is to work there and how lucky you will be to be hired. Then you move on to interview with the department and then hr. HR is very cut and dry. They ask some difficult questions and take notes the entire time. They are intense. Then the whole group moved on to listened to mock phone calls.

    It was a group of about 8 of us rotating individually to the interviews.

    I was not offered a position, they sent me an email at 9:30 pm on a Friday night letting me know I did not get it, no reason why just that I was not selected. This part honestly rubbed me the wrong way about the company with the timing of the decline email.

    I applied online through indeed and then 2 weeks later I received a phone call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview took 30 minutes, the questions were in regards to your past employment.

I interviewed with two managers and did a tour of the building. The interview was very intense.

    TAP Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    interviewed at Capital Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer asked a lot of behavioral questions, and no case questions. Overall, it was pretty easy-going. The TAP associate program is a 2 year full-time rotational program, which I was not aware of (I thought it was an internship,) but it seems like a great opportunity for those who are not yet sure of what they would like to do in the future.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions, and they were all pretty straight-forward.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Capital Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Selected to interview on-campus. 20 minute interview. Half the interview was laid back conversation and the rest was behavioral. The interviewer was taking notes the entire time and asking questions straight off the paper- sometimes the questions, trying to dig deeper into the example situation, did not apply to my answer.

    One of my recruiters had a connection with the HR manager. There was an initial HR phone interview, and if they feel you are a good cultural fit, you will be brought back for a second interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview: 2 phone interviews (1h each) with the managers of the program. mostly behavioral questions. Then second round of interviews in New York with 5 to 6 people. if you make it to third round, you spend two days in each of the offices (LA, and Irvine, CA) where you meet with 5 people each time. I liked meeting with the people there. They seem genuinely interested in you as an individual and how you can contribute to the company.
