Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in June 2012.

Interview

Step 1. Phone interview with recruiter
Step 2. Online personality test and aptitude test
Step 3. Five interviews back to back. 2 were behavioral and 3 case interviews.

*Everyone was super duper nice.
*The whole HR and recruiting team was very helpful from the beginning. Told me how should I prepare and what should I expect on the interview day
* Case interviewers were very helpful BUT had a few communication issues as English is not my first language and wasn't my interviewers first language yet I managed to solve it/
* Behavioral interviews are very stream lined. You are asked 3 questions about your past experience and you have 40 minutes to answer them + Ask questions of your own.

I worked very hard for 2 months for this interview (in all).
- Practice as many tests as you can before online assessment
- Go over your resume and prepare stories for each job position
- Practice as many cases as you can with friends and family

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Capital One booked a train down to Richmond, VA for the interview. Went on a tour of the campus, met with other employees who explained different career paths. The first day consisted of a mostly casual meet and greet. Second day featured three case interviews and two behavioral interviews. The behavioral interviews were standard, questions about leadership, working as a team, etc. Case interviews were fun and challenging, be sure to practice different business scenarios based on efficiency and cost effectiveness.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the case interview questions revolved around improving the business model of a ferry crossing a river in regards to changing traffic and cost scenarios. They were looking for strategic thinking to find ways to make the ferry business more efficient.   Answer Question

    Interview

    one behavioral, two case interviews. they interview tons of students from across the nation so try to be prepared as possible for the case interviews.

    the company culture seems extremely relaxed. talking to the employees (at least the younger ones), they seem to talk a lot about how little work they do.

    On the cases it is definitely worth your time to take your time. Think things through because I eventually got the right answers but only after prodding from the interviewer.

    Interview

    Applied to Capital One through my school. Was asked to take a reading/math assessment. The Assessment was challenging but not impossible. The time goes buy very quickly while youre trying to interpret the questions. Was invited to a case interview that while was not extremely difficult, made you think and was intimidating at times due to the information given to you. Could have done better but it was my first one and it did not go as smoothly as i would have hoped.

My interviewer said I answered the case correctly and that he would be glad to see me at Capital One. Three days later I received a rejection email.
