    Bank Operations Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capital One in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position online, which included general application information and a lengthy behavioral assessment. Two days after passing the behavioral assessment, I got a call from a recruiter. She asked if I'd be interested in a phone interview, and we scheduled it for the next day. The phone interview was not really an interview, just a conversation to see if I was interested and if I'd be a good fit. After establishing my strong interest in the position, she scheduled an on-site interview.

    My interview was two parts, as there were 3 positions open in the same area. The first was one-on-one and very enjoyable, and there were two interviewers present for the second part. The questions were behavioral, and as others have said it is great to stick to the STAR method. As Capital One's career site says, they are looking for a conversation, so it is not uncomfortable like some other interviews can be.

    I was told that it would take a week to get a decision, but got an offer that evening. I was then sent some paperwork to sign, and a background check form (post-offer application). The background check took about 4 days. For my position, the whole process took about 3 weeks.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was contacted within 2 days by email for a digital interview by hirevue. I guess that's the new interview process for capital one. There's 15 questions some are a written response. If you pass the digital interview the recruiter will contact you to go into the branch for one on one interview. It's only been about 2 days and I'm still waiting for a follow up.

    Part Time Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Capital One in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Capital One takes steps to hire the best they can. With that said, it took some time and effort to be offered the position. First I had to do an online prescreening which had very basic counting and math involved. They just started doing a new Pre interview process that is done by video in the comfort of your home. The video has pre recorded questions about specific customer service situations. This part was particularly tricky because they ask for specific examples and details, but give you a limited time to start recording your response. The good thing is that it allows you to re-record once or twice. I can't stress enough that they want you to BE SPECIFIC. I thought I was pretty specific, but when I had talked to my recruiter, she said some of the managers thought my video was kind of vague. Anyway, after review and following up with my recruiter, I was scheduled an in person interview with the branch manager and lead teller. This interview was much easier, as the branch manager was very easy going and laid back. Some of the questions were similar, some were different, or asked specifics about my personally. Over all the experience was pleasant. Although I will say that Capital One is a company that thrives on providing not just the best customer service, but actually setting the standard...with that said, I was actually declined an in person interview several times at first. The key was consistently following up with the recruiter. Don't be afraid to follow up and let them know you really want the job. One of the reasons I was declined at first was because my school schedule. They assumed I couldn't work around it, but when I followed up with them and explained it was flexible, I got an interview soon after. Over all the process took 30-45 days, but that was partially because of my issue with school schedule.
