Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in November 2016.

Interview

I had two different rounds for Capco. One on-campus and the last at their office in NYC. The interviews were fairly standard with some emphasis on brain-teasers and some mini cases.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was actually a rather enjoyable interview experience. I first had a phone screen with a recruiter to go over my resume, gauge my communication skills, and answer typical questions like 'What are your strengths and weaknesses?' The next week I was invited to the office, where I had two 30min interviews with Associate Consultants. The office had an awesome loft, style layout with incredible downtown views. The Consultants were personable, and they asked about my background, why Capco, why consulting and then proceeded with a series of rapid fire questions to test my ability to think critically on my feet. I was invited to the final round - Assessment Center Day - where about 15 candidates completed work simulation exercises, presented a group case study and had the opportunity to have a Q&A with Partners and other Consultants.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Intense but creative. We got there around 8am ,then it finished at 2pm. We did 1:1 question, group case study, write emails... basically it was testing the way you think, how you react to a given problem and how much you know about Capco. Don't be too nervous, but because some questions are very unpredictable, I will recommend to just be yourself, don't try to act like someone who you are not. Some of the questions will require instant response and that's how they know how you think and also maybe your personality.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed for a spot in Capco's Associate Talent Program. Had a phone interview with a HR rep (100% behavioral), then a phone interview with a more senior consultant (mostly behavioral), followed by a face-to-face interview consisting of three interviews (with consultant, senior consultant, and partner), with the final step being a half day "assessment center". The assessment day consisted of a rapid-fire question and answer session with several employees of differing levels, a written case exercise, and a group presentation exercise. All in all, the interview process was lengthy and thorough but pretty laid-back in reflection of the firm's culture overall.
