    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAPCO.

    Interview

    I would consider the interview process new age and smooth sailing. I came in and was set up in a conference room. I then met with a few different members of the senior management team (separately) in regards to Capco culture, various projects and my background and skill-set. After that night I was then set up to speak with a couple more individuals for a phone screen including a partner of the firm.

    Interview Questions

    • I wouldn't say difficult, just very intricate questions regarding the step by step details of how I performed as a business analyst versus a project manager.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very short, I received a small increase in pay but it was worth the transition as I've never worked for a management consultant firm and I am eager to learn and grow.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at CAPCO.

    Interview

    Typically the job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. However, at CAPCO the process was super quick. I had one phone interview and one in-person interview with 3 managers. Very positive experience!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CAPCO (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    -online questions: why capco,how should we focus on, what makes you a good consultant
    -video interview: why capco, successful teamwork, role of technology in the financial services
    -assessment centre: 40 people, intake of 4.
    (1) test: easy. Simple numerical questions, plus spotting language mistakes in paragraphs.
    (2) spaghetti challenge: 4 teams of 3 people. Build the highest tower using spaghetti and jellybabies.
    (3) group case study: 8 people team. You have 30 minutes to read 3 pages on the case study, come up with a group strategy, and present it to Capco partners. Do not underestimate people's hurry: it is contagious. Nobody had really understood the content of the 3 pages, when we started discussing.
    (4) speed dating interview: 5 consultants, rotate and have 5 minutes with each of them. It is the only one-on-one bit of the AC. Do not assume they read your Cv/cover letter, because they most likely have not.

    Overall it's relatively informal, friendly and quick (only 2.5 hours).
