    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 through school. 1st round 30 min case on campus. First round was pretty straightforward with profit=revenue - loss and breakeven calculations. 2nd round in either of their Virginia offices. 1 behavioral and 2 cases, 45 min each. My second case was much harder than the first. It was somewhat hard to relate to the interviewers because they were significantly older and didn't seem very interested or invested in you as a candidate. No offer but it was a great learning experience.
