Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capital One in April 2010.

Interview Details

Start out taking a few online assesments both verbal and mathematical. They fly you in and put you up in a hotel the night before the interview which consisted of another math test, 2 case interviews, and one behavioral interview. The night before I went to a reception where we had the opportunity to talk to some present analysts about the job. The first case was a credit card comparison case on profits with different credit limits. The interviewer I had for the first case was pretty cold and when I did get the right answer, he challenged my math and made me second guess myself even though in the end he said I was right. I killed the behavioral interview. The second case which was more extensive and difficult but the interviewer was more clear on the case and I answered it very quickly with no problems. Pretty much if you can kill the cases, thats all that really matters. If you don't ace both of them though, its doubtful you will get hired. Seems like an awesome job if you do get the offer though.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capital One in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for Capital One is extremely selective and takes almost the entire day. In my case, the process lasted over 9 hours. This includes an IQ test, several case studies and an interview to gauge the candidates behavior. While the process was tiring, the interviewers were extremely polite and helpful which to a large extent helped me through it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capital One.

    Interview Details

    It was campus recruitment.

    Written Round(1 hour) : Section 1 - 40 q's all on data interpretation mcq's mainly to check speed and accuracy. Section 2 - 10 q's on aptitude mainly. most were subjective and puzzles.

    Interview:
    ROUND 1 : Small case study. For most people it ran for only 10-15min. Mine went for 40 min and had 2 case studies. They were not very difficult. They will give most data, some u might need to ask. You need to back every answer with calculations.

    ROUND 2 : It was aptitude round involving puzzles. As I was CS student I was asked to code each puzzle. All puzzles were logical and needed some thinking.

    ROUND 3 : Behavioral questions(though for most this was round 4). What problems u faced in past and how did u tackle them

    ROUND 4 : Case Study. This time they only gave the problem(without data) and I had to analyze it inside out. Some data was given as I asked.

    After 10-15 mins I was handed over the offer letter

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Capital One in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I went about five minutes early to chat with the interviewer and he seemed relaxed. The case was about call center improvement when they had two kinds of customer service agents (regular and advanced). He pointed out simple math errors I made but when I really got stuck conceptually, he didn't really help much. The total interview took about 30 minutes.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capital One in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was a very long and drawn out interview process. The case interviews were one-on-one with an interviewer who was unfriendly and arrogant. They interviewed no less than 75 people for one position at the university level, and then you have to spend an entire day doing more case interviews once they bring you to the location. It seems like a very inefficient way of finding potential hires.
