    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online on their website and received the phone screen interview inform two days later. The interview is about explaining several statistical definitions based on a given situation. The questions are like what other people had said, p-value, hypothesis test, multicollinearity, etc. No behavioral questions, just technical questions based on real-world problems. My advice of preparations is that thoroughly understand about the definitions and how to apply those techniques to practical problems, because the questions really go through details and you need to explain them to someone who only has basic statistic knowledge. The interviewer was really nice. I received the on-site interview inform three hours after the phone screen. Good luck to both you and me!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview is very formal. 2 case studies, 1 behavior section and 1 role play. In addition to the statistical technique, I feel they also have a high requirement about business sense.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Just did a phone interview. Waiting for their reply now. Basic concept P-value, standard deviation, correlation. Application: A university want to raise 1 millions dollars with limited budget, what would you recommend them to do by using statistical analysis. Basic concepts are easy. But I think I screwed the application question. Should have start with asking if there is any historical data.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital One (Dallas, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    There are four cases: 1 statistics, 2 business, 1 behavior. The statistics case is about multiple linear regression and ANOVA, I think I bombed this one cause I don't rememer anything about ANOVA except what it stands for. In the business cases, there are questions about conditional probability, auto loan, and credit card business.
