Senior Data Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in May 2010.

Interview

Applied on their website and got an email from a recruiter within 2-3 days to do online assessments. the first assessment was a personality test to see if you will fit with the culture. The second consisted of a verbal and a math test. After passing these, they arranged for me to do a phone interview with a manager in the group I was applying to. That went well and I was invited to a round of in-person interviews. The in-person interviews consisted of 1 Behavioral and 2 Case interviews along with another assessment test. It has been 2 months to my interviews and no response yet. I can understand if they are not interested in hiring me but after so many interviews they at least owe me a courtesy email/call to let me know that I have been rejected. I have interviewed with many prestigious and large firms but nobody else has been this dis-courteous.

Interview Questions

  • The case interview consisted of choosing between a direct-mail or telephone marketing. You are supposed to ask questions to let them give you some numbers and then compare them to see which one would be more effective.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online, took an online IQ/EQ test and passed, then had a phone "mini" case interview. Did well on that, so got invited to an interview day at the Plano campus. This consisted of a behavioral interview and 2 case interviews. Did very well on one of the cases, but not so well on the second case. Everyone was very nice and not pressuring. Found out 1 business day later that I did not make the cut. Seems like a really great company to work for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    The interview can be broken in two categories... Case Interview and Behavioral Interview. Case interview primarily checks your ability to interpret the data for example if you will be able to see if the company making profit for loss, percentage , graphical representation of data. Simple maths but I would suggest you should revise the formula's for Profit/ Loss and Break Even Analysis, Behavioral Interview - that's easy, you have to talk about instances that may have come up in your career or you should be smart enough to make one and speak just like Extempore.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Standard interview process, a recruiter call asking quantitative questions solve, if decided to move forward, an onsite interview consisting of 4 interviews of which 2 behavioral interviews and 2 case interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral normally consists of 3-4 questions in each round, varies from interview to interview I recommend going through some practice questions. As per as Case interviews are concerned, I could only speak for myself here, pretty vague interview I had ever experienced. I would like to know the purpose of such vague questions. Question: Would you or would you not offer rewards to the customer? Fair enough its s good question, but how can answer that without any additional information (note: they refrained me from asking any questions related to this). They just wanted a yes or no. How can I provide an answer without considering other factors, like annual fee or other promotional offers, more so the objective are you trying to profit or increase market size, without this information its hard to answer such questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Fairly standard process where recruiter contacts you to set up an initial phone screen, followed by an online assessment for quantitative and personality review. Onsite interviews are a mix of case, behavioral and fit interviews. Once an offer is extended, there is not much room for negotiation.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical case interview - a series of quantitative and business sense questions revolved around a hypothetical theme.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Efficient and thorough. They are definitely looking for nearly flawless candidates. Two case-style questions that involved working through profit/loss maximizing and minimizing. Two "behavioral" sessions which are more conversational about your background and motivations. I was not given an offer, nor told why I wasn't a good fit. I felt good about my background, case answers, and overall discussion with the team members. I suspect the position was ultimately given to someone less expensive or that was local as I would have needed a relocation package.

    Interview Questions

    • Determine average daily cost or profit, then tweak the initial set of variables for new scenarios and finally determine a break even point.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Got an interview call through a recruiter. The 1st round of selection is a straight forward screening over the phone. After that you are called for an onsite round of interviews which typically include 2 behavioral interviews and 2 case studies. You might be called for a 5th round of interview after lunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical "Tell us about a time when..." STAR format questions. The case studies are mostly business scenarios with a bit of quantitative maneuvering. Be careful and focus on what they ask you to calculate as you might waste time if figuring out stuff which they are not interested in. Also, won't hurt to go through a few examples of case studies that the recruiter will send you (I am sure you can find a lot online as well)   Answer Question
