    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    The entire Capital One recruiting team was great, very responsive to e-mails and answering any and all questions. First interview was on campus which just consisted of a short door greeting followed by a standard behavioral interview. Followed up very quickly by offering a second interview on their campus. This second interview took place over the course of an afternoon, which included a guided tour, lunch and a room for each candidate which posed as your home base so to speak for the three interviews that followed. This included a behavioral, job-fit and case study interview. The interviewers themselves were some of the best I have ever had-all very down to earth and responsive to normal dialogue rather than strictly reading from their prompt.

    Interview Questions

    • The case study was by design the hardest question, but not anything that you have not seen in any class prior.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on the job site and was called by a recruiter the following day to set up a 30 min chat. After the chat I took the IQ and Personality test (I'd highly recommend reviewing the review-material they send you!!). Once I found out I passed the tests I spoke directly with the Sr. Director (who I'd be reporting to). We had another 30 min chat, then I was brought in for the "Power Day" of interviews (which ended up being about 2.5 weeks after the original phone call with the recruiter). The power day consisted of 2 1:1 interviews with a bunch of "tell me about a time when..." questions, and then a "Job Fit" interview. All were 45 mins (with 1 45 min break). I was called a week later with an offer.

    Negotiation

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capital One in December 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process starts with an aptitude test containing 30-questions, which you are required to complete in around 25 minutes, which is possible. If you clear this round, next set of rounds (generally 2-3) involve case-interviews having a difficulty level of easy to slightly difficult. All these cases involve some basic principles of finance. After completing these cases, in the final round, you have an HR-interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    I had a senior working at Capital One and so had a rough idea about the work there. Also I did attend Capital One’s pre-placement talk. Make sure you do attend the pre placement talk. That way you will get to know about the company and the kind of work you would be expected to do if you do get selected.
