Interviewed at Capital One
Interview Details –
After the initial case interview (on-campus), you get an email saying you passed the case and directing you to sign up for your power day interviews.
One behavioral interview - standard-issue STAR stuff ("Tell me about a time when..."), plus a job-fit component at the end (picking most preferred job description and talking about ideal day at work). Two business cases. Tour of the facility and lunch in one of the cafeterias.
Interview Question – The cases were somewhat difficult. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capital One.
Interview Details – Initial Contact at school career showcase. First interview is a case study, no behavioral questions. The recruiter came and gave an info session so you weren't totally in the dark. It's high pressure but you just have to have confidence and really focus on the questions. I was getting too caught up in the lack of information rather than working with what I had in front of me. Also there will be business oriented questions such as "do you think this new method is a good idea?".
Interview Question – Really think about the math. It's hard to think with lack of information but the simpler the better Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in October 2013.
Interview Details – The interview consists of a case study. The interviewer presents you with a business scenario and then asks you to walk through some steps to provide more info on it. For example, they may give you some values about fixed cost and marginal revenue then ask you to calculate a breakeven point. You may be asked to sketch a chart for visualization. The math is basic algebra but the challenge is setting up the equations yourself in a pressure situation.

Interview Details – For campus recruiting the process is: first there is a resume drop, then they'll do a case interview. If you do well on that they invite you to interview at their Virginia headquarters. The case interview discusses topics like breakeven points for credit card defaults. It's not extremely technical or detailed; they want to see how you think and present your answer.
Interview Question – No specific question stands out as most difficult. Just go to the preparation sessions they offer and review that material. Answer Question

Interview Details –
Applied online and through my school's career site. Received a request to pass a skills test online (some behavioral, some math). After completing this test, invited to sign up for a preferable interview time. Interviewed on campus with friendly managers. Case interview: first question was very straight-forward, second question was a lot more difficult. Asked to clarify question, provide additional information and went through my thought process.
Overall a painless process, but unfortunately I don't think I approached the second question correctly as I was not invited for a second round of interviews.

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in August 2013.
Interview Details – Flight and hotel were paid for by Capital One. The interview process contained of two analytical interviews and two behavioral interviews, each conducted by different employees. Personally, I found the analytical interviews to be much easier than the behavioral interviews, but most of my fellow interviewees didn't agree with me on that. Everybody could get free coffee between interviews, which were followed by lunch in the cafeteria (not really cheap, but good!)
Interview Question – One of the questions from the second behavioral interviews: "Tell us about a time (job-related) when you made an unpopular decision, and despite everybody's doubts, your decision turned out to be the right one." View Answers (2)
