Senior Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Capital One (Washington, DC) in February 2015.
This was by far the worst interview process I have ever been through since I started in IT. Capital One uses SHL to do a general assessment to determine suitability.
The intial screening had absolutely ZERO to do with the technology position I was asked to apply for. The assessment consisted of some generic numeric reasoning, verbal and personality based questions without ANY technology based questions.
Needless to say, I would never accept an invitation to interview with this company again. Stay away.
- Study SHL numeric reasoning and verbal assessment questions online as well as the practice tests prior to taking the complete assessment. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at Capital One.
First talked with HR Recruiter then took the online tests. They provided plenty of guidance on taking the exam. Next step was the onsite interview and again HR sent sample questions and recommended the STAR method for responding. Had an offer within 24 hours of the in person interview. Most of the delays were due to commitments at my current job
- Nothing unexpected. HR was good about providing some ideas of what to expect prior to the interview Answer Question
Base offer was fair. Was able to negotiate a sign on and some pre planned vacation time off

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in April 2013.
I recently interviewed with Capital One. Very interesting interview process -- phone interviews and an online test (3 parts) broken into numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, and personality assessment. It is nice to know that the company cares about bringing in bright people who pass certain criteria. I then went into the office for a half-day of interviews with 5 VP/SVP level leaders on the team who were all very friendly and helpful in answering my questions about the role, the company, and the city.
- Verbal reasoning questions were difficult, tricky questions. Had to read through them each several times and ran short on time at the end of the test. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Capital One in November 2012.
This is a full day process. You'll meet with 4 folks minimum if lucky. HR, Behavioral, Motivational, your new manager. Each will have a set of questions, expect 1 hour or more per person, and if lucky, you are assigned an office for the day of questioning. Usually there are 4 to 6 others being reviewed by the team at the same time. At the end, the 4 interviewers will rate you. ya or nay. but before you get this wonderful experience, you'll have 2 hour timed test. Best of luck

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in May 2012.
Everyone was just a little weird and a little stuck up. Think of the girl in high school that got straight A's and couldn't wait for college where she could be appreciated, she now works at COF. Everyone there was very nice though. On a scale of 1:10 for people who I'd want to be friends with and a place I'd want to work for more than a year, I'd give them a 3.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in June 2011.
I got word of this job through some networking done by a former co-worker who is a current Capital One employee. He passed my resume on to the hiring manager, who in turn sent it over to HR. I was asked to take the online assessments for personality and verbal/math skills. After being notified that I was invited to Power Day, I had a series of two behavioral interviews and one fit interview. I did not have to perform any case interviews due to the position I applied for.
The interviewers were very professional and I am convinced that this is a good place to work. Unfortunately, I was not an exact fit for the job and did not receive an offer.
