Data Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Richmond, VA
Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in September 2013.

Interview Details

Applied through college, got an interview date with them. In the interview they will ask you to do a case study. Nothing to be afraid of they will help you with the information and they might droop hints as to how to tackle it. Try to speak through your process as it helps them understand and as well as help you work through the problem. The question that they asked was if Capital One and your school wanted to do a venture together with credit cards (then he gave you some numbers) calculate the profit.

Interview Questions
  • The case study for the first interview is not that hard, the ones for the final round is. The final round consist of 3 case studies and a behavioral interview.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First met during on grounds Career Fair. Had a first round interview with a simple math based case that revolved around calculating the per day profit from an account given the current balance and various rates (interest rates, reserve requirements). Heard back within a week that I had been selected to go to one of their "Power Days" in Richmond. The Power Day consisted of two math based cases and one behavioral interview. The case interviewers were very helpful in guiding you through the cases. Power Day was on a Friday and I received an offer on Monday.

    Interview Questions
    • The cases and behavioral questions were very straight forward. They actually gave a list of sample behavioral questions to the interviewees the day before and then drew from that list.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation salary wise, but they did ask me for my location preference.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Capital One in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The woman that I interviewed with seemed to be burnt out (my interview was at 3:30), and uninterested. But if you research the sample case study that they post online you should be fine. The case was simple business math, just make sure to practice speaking as you are working because it is expected that you elaborate on your processes out loud.

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview Details

    First was an on campus case interview then they invited me to an on site interview. The on site interview consisted of two case interviews and one behavioral interview. Case interviews were pretty easy. The behavioral interview is only three questions but they'll get you to really go into detail for each answer so the interview lasts almost an hour.

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's job search software. I had an initial on-campus 1:1 case interview. After passing this initial round, I was flown to the Capital One office at Richmond, VA, where I had a "Power Day": three interviews over the course of three hours. I had two case interviews and one behavioral interview. Each interview is forty-five minutes long, with an additional forty-five minute break in between two of the interviews. After my round of interviews, I was given a tour of the office and lunch, and was flown back to my university the same day. Their review process is very fast; I was contacted with an offer the next business day.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capital One in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the Data Analyst position through my University's career services website. About a week later I was invited to a single case interview at my college campus, as well as an on-campus reception on the night before the interview, at which Capital One representatives basically talked about what Capital One does and why we should be excited to work for them. During my initial interview, the interviewer was extremely friendly, which definitely helped me calm down a bit (though I still made a number of calculation errors on my way to the correct answers). Despite my mistakes, miraculously I was selected to attend the final-round interviews in Richmond, at Capital One's main campus, two weeks later. They paid to have us stay at the Hilton, and held a reception on the night before our interviews in which we talked with current Data Analysts at Capital One, who have only worked there for a year or two (note: these people aren't associated with the hiring team, so there's no pressure to impress them or anything). On the morning of the interviews, at the Capital One headquarters, each Data Analyst candidate was assigned to wait in a small room, and was given a schedule. The schedule split our morning into four 'blocks' -- in random order, we had a behavioral interview, two case interviews, and a 45-minute break. We sat in our rooms and waited for interviewers to come at the appointed times. Each interview was one-on-one, though some of the interviews included a second Capital One employee who was simply observing the interview (in training). Around noon we finished our interviews, ate lunch as a group at the Capital One cafeteria, went on a short tour of the campus, and then left. Three days later, a recruiter called to make me an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't really negotiate -- the offer was very generous, and further, I hear that Capital One doesn't negotiate much with entry-level hires.
