    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Capital One Auto Finance in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an email asking if I would be willing to do a case interview over the phone. The interview was on Tuesday and lasted about 45 minutes, with the first 30 minutes consisting of the case, and the last 15 for me to ask questions. The day after my interview I received a phone call saying I had passed the initial screening and they invited me to the final round of interviews in Dallas that Friday. The next day they flew me out to Dallas and put me up in a nice hotel for the night. The Interview day consisted of 3 separate one-hour interviews. One was behavioral while the other two were case interviews. These case interviews were about credit cards and life insurance.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult case interview was one about credit cards comparing two different types of users. I was asked to figure out the per-person profit for each kind of user and then was asked to make a decision as to which I should market towards and how.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I first visited the company's website as an employee referral. I was given a requistion number and applied directly for that position. There was an online application first, then a few different online assessments that I had to complete. Once those were reviewd and assessed I received an emailed requesting a phone interview. Then the phone interview took place and I received a call in regards to an on site interview. The onsite interview was conducted by two managers, seperately, The entire process was lengthy and at times I was unsure if I should be waiting for another step or looking for another position within another company. I would have preferred a bit more communication from the hiring dept as far as what to expect next and what a reasonable time frame to expect that next step would be. Overall, it was a good experience and I was happy with the end result!

    Interview Details

    first round-campus interview, they had a workshop about case interview the day before, very helpful

    HR person is very helpful, email back quickly and provide several interview tips include a book "case in point"
    third round-2 case interview and 1 behavior interview, they pay the hotel and airline ticket. hold a reception in the hotel the night before interview, just send several yound employees came to chat and answer your questions. on the interview day, my behavior interviewer arrived late so we only talked about 20 minutes. then my 1st case interviewer was very nice but I screwed up cause forgot an important factor, 2nd case interviewer was an indian with bad accent, face to the door not me (seems he wanted to escape or something), and he was playing his cellphone all the time. We took a break and had lunch with them, didn't have a campus tour cause the bad weather. Overall is good, got experience even though without offer.

    Quality Assurance Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capital One Auto Finance in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Took the verbal and Numeric tests online. It was timed tests and not that difficult. There was job fit interview and after 2 weeks, was flown to Plano, TX. There were 2 case interviews and 1 behavioural interview for lead position. The case interviews were related to Break Even, and Profitability of a Process in the company. Break even case was good, Profitability case - cracked in 15 mins.... The interview process seemed as if it is a stereotype process and little bit tiresome for out of city candidates. It didn't seem as a tailored for someone who is 10-15 yrs of Industry experience and fit to do the job. They seem to have a standard set of process. Was not asked for any questions related to the position applied.

    Funding Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Capital One Auto Finance in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the job through a referral. The online application was lengthy and definitely not something you should take a break from. I discovered later if one stops in the middle of the online application it will automatically decline your app... Good thing I finished mine in one go. Recruiters are used, even for permanent employees, and while they are polite and helpful once you speak with them, they aren't always known for providing a speedy experience. Took mw about two months to receive a call from a recruiter and schedule an interview when I was informed all of Funding was doing heavy hiring. Once my interview date was set it was a pretty seamless process. The hiring manager who interviewed me was was professional, but not cold, and I could certainly tell he had a great deal of pride in the company he was currently working for. The interview questions were behavioral based, just like the online application, so I felt prepared. As far as interviews go, it was an enjoyable experience and i left feeling fairly confident I had the job. Which was confirmed in the call i received from my recruiter congratulating me on my success. Between the phone and the face-to-face, I had 2 interviews. And once I got to the face-to-face it was pretty smooth from there.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions from the recruiter and during the F2F were very similar to the online assessment and the recruiter advised me it would be a behavioral based interview and suggested I perform a Google search on the best way to answer those types of questions. I have a bit of experience with this type of interview questions, so nothing was too shocking. The hardest question for most is usually turning a negative customer service experience into a positive and providing an answer that will leave a positive impression with the interviewer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate because the offer was what I desired, in retrospect I wish I had asked for me because I strongly believe I would have obtained it.
