Received an email to apply to their summer program after attending a business conference in NYC. Case interview over the phone seemed pretty straightforward, but they wanted a "stronger performance."

    The initial communication process for the interview was excellent. But the interview itself was not the same for each candidate. The case interviews varied for each candidate and some seemed more complicated than others.

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

    Interview Details

    On-campus interview at my university, set up through university career services. The preparation video and walk-through explain the two types of interviews in detail, a case iInterview and a behavioral interview, so I felt relatively prepared going into the morning of the interview. The recruiter was really friendly and very professional. He posed a case interview question, and explained that there wasn't enough time to do both types of interviews. It was almost exactly like the practice case interview, but a little less complicated (mini golf course, promotion strategy, basic business math). He helped me through the problem, but I sort of stumbled through some of the math.

    Interview Questions
    • After laying out the basic cost-revenue structure of the mini golf business I owned, the interviewer proposed a scenario concerning multiple options of promotions to increase profits, and asked me to do the math clearly on a piece of paper. Which promotion would you recommend? I arrived at the right answer in the end, but got a little confused on a couple elements of the problem...   View Answer

    The process was not rigorous but pretty bland. The interviewer introduced himself and then we started the case. I had trouble pointing out the quantitative answers because he was very ambitious.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position through my campus career center. First interview (on campus) was a 30-minute case interview, no personal/behavioral questions were asked. After passing the first round, I was given paid travel to Capital One's Plano offices for a day of final round interviews and a tour around their campus. There were 3 interviews, each 45 minutes: 2 cases and 1 behavioral. One-on-one interviews with different interviewers each time.

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through school. 1st round 30 min case on campus. First round was pretty straightforward with profit=revenue - loss and breakeven calculations. 2nd round in either of their Virginia offices. 1 behavioral and 2 cases, 45 min each. My second case was much harder than the first. It was somewhat hard to relate to the interviewers because they were significantly older and didn't seem very interested or invested in you as a candidate. No offer but it was a great learning experience.

    Interview Questions

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capital One in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume at a career fair, and had a case interview over the phone about two weeks later. After the case interview I was contacted hours later (they said expect word back in 3-4 days, but they seem to be pretty efficient in this regard) to set up my flight for their power day.

    Power day was pretty challenging. There were 7 other candidates there at the same time. We did two case interviews and one behavioral interview. One case was about the same difficulty as the phone interview, but the other case was advanced. Some people were asked to stay for an additional interview that was not initially scheduled.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Capital One in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a first round interview over the phone for a case interview. I was immediately accepted and flown to Plano Texas for the second round. The second round had 2 case interviews and 1 behavioral using the star method. Everyone was very nice. I was set up at a nice hotel on Thursday night and then had my interview Friday morning and afternoon. I had my own room to myself and my interviewers came in to talk to me. We had a break between one of the interviews and then 2 back to back interviews. After the first 3 interviews, the interviewers are all taken out to lunch at the Capital One Campus and then some are asked to stay back for an additional interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The Questions were a little difficult and involved calculating mortality rate, and graphing. I stumbled a little but the interviewer was very helpful and always directed me back to the right path. Very mathematical and answer driven.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capital One in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through career services at target school and was given a first-round interview. First round was a 30 minute case interview on campus with an alum who is currently a VP. Within a few days I received an invitation to the Richmond campus for on-site interview (they covered all expenses). I had three 45 minute interviews in the morning, two more cases and one behavioral, generally with mid-level managers who went through the BA program. After a non-evaluative lunch and tour with current BA associates and a couple of other BA candidates, I was called back for a final round interview. The final round was a short case followed by some fit questions with a Managing VP who had been through the BA program. The recruiter for my university called two days later with an offer.

It's important to get the right numbers but it is arguably more important to be able make a recommendation based on a broader understanding of the situation, especially in the on-site case interviews.   Answer Question
