Finance Rotation Program Interview

Finance Rotation Program

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

Interview Details – First interview was a case interview on campus with a director. If you pass the case interview, you are flown to the Capital One campus for three more interviews: behavioral, fit, case. The behavioral interview were the typical "tell me when you..." The fit interview was about how you would obtain information that you need in a project you are working on. There were maybe 5-7 questions of this type (a little repetitive). The last interview is the case interview, and was conducted by two managers (can be a little intimidating).

Interview Question – Break even analysis. Very easy math when doing it on your own, but can be a little hard with 2 people in front of you.   Answer Question

Richmond, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in October 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of a campus interview followed by a trip up to their campus in Richmond, VA for a final round of interviews. This included a case interview, a behavioral interview, and a personality interview. What followed was a tour of the campus, and meeting with year one program participants to learn more about the job and the rotational program.

Interview Question – My case was about call center profitability metrics. Just simple profit analysis with fixed and variable costs.   Answer Question

Finance Rotation Program Interview

Finance Rotation Program
Richmond, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Capital One in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the company via email after submitting my resume online for the position. I was asked to take two timed online exams, one for math skills and one for verbal. I also had to take a personality test. Afterwards I was told that I passed the two exams and was invited to attend an interview day in Richmond, VA. Capital One covered all expenses for the travel, including my flight and a hotel room for one night. Because I had not had an on campus interview previously I had to do four 45 minute interviews in the morning (most people only had to do 3 since they had done one already at their school). The interviews consisted of a basic job fit interview, a behavior interview (answer 3 situational questions using STAR technique), and 2 case interviews (for me, other people only had to do 1 case interview that day). The case interviews were the hardest part of the day, but in general they were pretty straightforward - they used pretty basic algebra/math and you needed to talk through everything you were doing. The questions dealt with credit card scenarios, so some information talked about was unfamiliar but they were willing to explain everything when asked. Overall, I thought I had performed quite well in all of the interviews, but I was contacted and told they would not be moving on with my application (also Capital One is quite quick in getting back to you about the interview - 2 to 3 business days).

Interview Question – University Credit card - should university buy it out from Capital One or how can Capital One keep university from buying out the card (from the case interview).   View Answer
