All about business

Teller (Current Employee)
New Orleans, LA

ProsCompared to some other banks, the pay is good because some other banks don't pay you a monthly incentive for sales goals (i.e. Regions). But Capital One is much quicker to fire it's employees over the simplest thing.

ConsManagement is given too much power. There aren't rules that apply across the board. Managers are given a lot of discretion, so different branches do different things. You can easily lose your job over one simple, honest mistake. They only care about you harrassing and kissing up to the customers to meet your sales goals which ranges from a $35-$120 monthly incentive that is taxed. All the stalking and butt kissing you have to do to reach the goals is not worth it. They treat you like a number or product, not a person/employee. Basically, go to work, do your job, and be sure to dot all i's and cross all t's. And try not to NEVER be late or miss more than 4 days of work for being sick (a year) because they will fire you!!

Advice to Senior ManagementTry complimenting your employees for what they do right instead of always focusing on what they can do better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    good culture but low compensation and career oppotunity

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Work environment/culture is very good. Friendly and smart coworkers. No bad competition… Cons: Compensation is relatively low for similar job roles. You should expect to be busy most… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
