    Data Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Capital One (Vienna, VA).

    Interview

    Very professional and clearly laid out process. The data scientist interview comprises of 4 stages. Stage 1 is a coding test using Hackerrank and you have about 2.5 hours to complete it. Stage 2 is a phone interview - partly behavioral and partly technical thinking. Stage 3 is a data science challenge to showcase your data munging and analysis skills. The 4th stage is series of 7-8 one-one interviews comprising of case studies and behavioral interviews. This job was for the Capital one labs. The people seem to be really nice and professional. The HR was very systematic and helpful in keeping you updated. The only thing is that although a startup within a big firm they seem to have the problem of a large firm. Also, they seem to test you on many technology seems like they are not used and a bit unclear as to what I will be doing once I get the offer. Overall great experience and very good interview process for a large firm. Had a better offer so did not accept offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    Straight forward 5 step interviews. Two over the phone, the others were in-person. There was also an online assessment, it wasn't too bad. All reading comprehension and graphs but it was timed. Parts of the process were informal, but make sure not to get too comfortable even though the interviewer will.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with Recruiter Online Assessment - Verbal Reasoning & Math Reasoning, if you pass, you've invited to interview in person The in-person interview was three hours long. I met with the manager I would be working with, a software engineer, director of sales operations, and a Sr. Product Manager. I was not provided any water, or asked if I wanted to take a bio break. The manager was late 15 minutes late for the interview. The process seemed very disorganized. When the recruiter called to make an offer, I happily declined. First impressions are lasting ones, and for all they put you through during the interview process, it's simply not worth it.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The preselection is rigorous, if your resume makes it to the top you still have to take several tests online after applying. The results of those tests will qualify you for an in person interview with 3-4 different people. Getting to that point is hard. In person interviews: Case: testing your relevant skills for the position with a real business challenge Fit: Determine personality and skill fit Behavioral: Tell about a challenging situation what did you do to resolve Everyone I met was high caliber and professional. They tell you within a day or so whether you are getting an offer.

    Interview

    Was fine, but they canceled the position at the last minute. Everyone was very friendly, the two phone interviews were short but cordial. They arranged for all travel, paid for everything and even made adjustments once the position had been canceled which allowed me to do some other stuff in the area.
