Data Analyst Interview

Data Analyst
Richmond, VA

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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

Data Analyst
Charlottesville, VA

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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.

Ithaca, NY

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – Why did you start with x calculation?   Answer Question

Plano, TX

I applied through college or university and 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 applied online and 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.

Interview Question – I was asked how I applied my skills to persuade a group of people to agree with my point of view.   Answer Question
