I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capital One in March 2012.

Interview Details – Submitted an application through my university website. Completed an online assessment, and was offered a final interview 3 days later. Final interview consisted of 2 case interviews and 1 behavioral. I was the only person being interviewed who received a final interview without an on-campus one.

Case interviews were standard, but required knowledge about credit cards.

Behavioral was fairly straightforward, but still difficult.

Interview Question – Business case regarding two stores that are not economically feasible.   Answer Question

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in February 2011.

Interview Details – Applied through my college career center (resume drop). Got initial interview. Initial interview question was about the Subway 5 dollar footlong promotion. There was not time for behavioral questions in the initial interview. Passed that, then got an IQ test and a math/verbal assessment to complete. Then got invited to a final round interview in Virginia. Representatives and interviewers were incredibly nice.

Interview Question – Tell us if Subway should adopt the 5 dollar footlong policy.   Answer Question

First Round (1 Case Question, at my campus):

Company is has a negative percent revenue, what would you do to fix the situation. Required basic math skills, the interviewer seemed to value creativity in open ended questions. Made some mistakes and the interviewer helped guide me.

Final Round (2 Case Questions and a Behavioral Interview, at their campus in Richmond):

   Case 1:
How to help a company losing money in a perfectly competitive environment. Just remember your into to microeconomics class and you'll have everything you need.

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Capital One in February 2009.

Interview Details – First round was a written exam, basic math. Second round was a 1-1 case interview. Did not make to the third round.

Interview Question – Question: what would happen if a pizza restaurant decides to shrink its free delivery zone: I think the numbers were 15 miles in diameter before and 10 miles in diameter after. The catch is the order has to arrive within 30mins after the order is made, or the pizza is free.   View Answers (2)
