Easy Interview


I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in October 2012.


I have been considered for two separate positions in middle office (risk, ALM etc.) and had great initial phone interviews with recruiters only to be dinged after the online testing. While I can't be sure, I suspect that the personality assessment may be what's been holding me back. The numerical and verbal portions weren't difficult (I have a graduate degree and have taken a variety of standardized tests) so I'm fairly confident that I performed well. In fact, I subsequently have been offered a similar position at one of Cap One's competitors.

Interview Questions

  • In any case, it is hard to avoid sounding like sour grapes but I do find it puzzling to not even be offered a phone interview with someone from the particular area. In my opinion, it reflects poorly on COF that they would rely on an algorithm rather than doing the hard work of getting to know applicants. I suppose their method of hiring is a valid as any other but the experience definitely left a bad taste in my mouth.   Answer Question
