    I worked at Capital One full-time (more than an year)


    Co-workers - all were professional and focused. I was given interested projects and the authority that I needed to get the job done.


    Changing review structure and no ability to change to part-time. I left due to family commitments. I would have liked to have continued part-time, but that was not available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider allowing more flexible schedules for work/life balance. Otherwise, I really liked it there and would have happily stayed.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview Details

    Applied and interviewed through campus hire program in Spring 2014. Process took about 3 week. They had plenty of on campus info sessions and interview preparation. I had one interview on campus and an invite for a final round of interviews on site in Richmond. Interviewers were friendly but focused on the task at hand: judging your analytic ability. This is the main focus of the case interviews, to see if you can draw conclusions and think of different approaches by yourself. They will help you get back on track if you get lost, but doing this too often probably isn't good. They provide a calculator, but the numbers are easy so you can get extra points for not using it.

    Interview Questions
    • My cases were more analytic in nature than cases I studied. Many times you will be asked to make a graph or a function. The cases will have clear conclusions, so you will know if you finished the case in the allotted time or not. I prepared a lot and I was fine, but I can see cases being hard if you aren't prepared.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    New grads don't have much room to negotiate. But don't really need to, good pay and benefits.
