I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Capital One in March 2014.

Interview Details – Started with an on campus interview that last about 45 minutes and was just talking about resume and then behavioral questions. Then, I was invited to go on site for an interview, where they took care of all travel and hotel reservations. They had a QA session the night before with two employees to ask any questions and the interview was the next day at their Richmond office. It starts with a tour and lunch and then the interview part is divided into three sections. There is another behavioral section, a "job fit" which is just trying to see where you want to work and some pretty easy programming questions. Finally, there is a case interview. They send out a lot of resources on that, so if you look at those it's not too bad. Their college recruiting lays everything out so everything is clear cut.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capital One.

Interview Details – Met with a recruiter at a career fair and applied online. They requested a campus interview the next week, which was a 45 minute behavioral interview involving "Tell me about a time when..." questions. I received an email the next day requesting a second round interview, also on campus. They invited the second round interviewees to a reception the night before the interviews. Definitely go to this, as it includes a case workshop and a chance to speak with some associates who may be interviewing you.

The second-round interview involved three separate 45 minute interviews. Another behavioral interview with three questions, a job fit interview that had some technical questions involving some algorithms and data structures, and a case interview with a business scenario involving technology and some basic algebra. If you're preparing for this interview, make sure you study for the job fit, as it was a little tricky. The interviewers were all relaxed and made the process easy. Overall a great experience from start to finish.

Interview Question – Can you think of a way to make this algorithm more efficient? They ask this after you correctly solve the previous algorithm.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, as it was for an internship.
