Senior Business Analyst Interview

Easy Interview

Application

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One.

Interview

Phone Screen with HR (describe current position and how it relates to job at Capital One), interests, etc. If you pass then they set you up at one of their offices for "Super Day" where you will have 2 case studies and 1 behavioral interview. After you finish those in the morning, you will have lunch with some associates and take a tour. Should they need more info, you may be asked to stay for another case study, otherwise you leave that day. Not sure why I didn't get the job since I know for a fact I did well on all aspects of the interview process...probably because either A) they need to interview a certain amount of people for Equal Opportunity reasons B) they prefer Ivy League people so they can compare to Goldman/JP Morgan

Interview Questions

  • Typical behavioral "Tell me a time" questions and go into more detail as you discuss your experience Case interviews are pretty easy, just math related revenue, cost, profit, break even questions (not strategy focused)   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital One (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1 behavioral + 2 case interviews. One of the cases is heavy on quant and calculations are recalled for future questions within the case. The cases are not necessarily based on banking industry problems. They are used to assess the candidate's problem solving approach. Not much time given for questions to be posed by the candidate after the case is completed. So do ask your best questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    After a half hour phone interview I was invited to Richmond for a "Super Day" type interview. Prepare to be wooed. Stayed at the Hilton and got a full tour of their Google/Space City "Campus" which includes perks like an onsite chiropractor and various full sized athletic fields. Note: I'm a liberal arts grad, and was the only one from our group of 14 that powerday. The first case was about de/re-regulating a utilities market and the effect it would have on price. This one was easy since you can propose and evaluate methods of regulating markets through other real-world examples (ex: power, water, cable, airlines) and the math was simple. I was only asked 3 behavioral questions, so I would pick robust examples. The last case was far more difficult and was essentially a series of math problems in a general business context. The case included solving for profits, break-even and possibly a maximization/curve, which is where I got stuck. All three interviewers I met with had masters in statistics or engineering. I think this interview/position is certainly possible for a "creative" with some studying but is far better suited for a "quant".
