Digital Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in February 2019.

Interview

Soon after submitting my application online, I received an email from HR to arrange a phone conversation to discuss my interest and overall fit. The call was very brief (15 min) and they were keen to move to the next stage of the application process, which consisted in a 45-minute interview with a member of the HR and 1 hour skills and content interview with members of the team.
Both the interviews were quite relaxed and people were very friendly, they wanted particulary to know about my interest in financial services and my knowledge about artificial intelligence systems. Unfortunately, my application was not moved to the next stages, which, I believe, would involve a case study and finally the interview with senior managers including a presentation on a brief.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached on LinkedIn by one of the HR team and told to send my CV. I sent my CV although there was no role my cv was aligned against - although I asked for Wealth Mgmt - I was told this was not a guarantee and if I had 'transferable skills' Capco would use this as a foundation. The telephone interview was short, snappy and as predicted I was invited to the next stage.

    Due to work commitments and available interview slots, I wasn't able to interview till at least a month after. I attended the 2nd stage interview at the Capco office by Old Street, and had two interviews. The first was a skills interview with a person who had gone up the ranks at the company quicker than other - which was good for him, but I wasn't sure how that would help me during the interview process? The interview was generic and lasted around 45 mins. The second interview was with HR, and was shorter - it lasted approx 30 mins. The questions again were very generic.

    Although I thought the interview went very well - I was called within 48hrs telling me I had not made the next stage - which was baffling. I had all the transferable skills, I had experience in Change Mgmt which is what Capco are all about, and I felt all the questions were answered, at least, in a satisfactory manner. The feedback provided after the interview made no sense.

    All in all, I believe I was part of the interview quota companies are required to reach. In hindsight due to the rashness, care-free, lack of direction, and ultimately negative experience I believe Capco are looking for yes men to body shop.

    Finally, when you're arriving for the interview and see beforehand one of your interviewers smoking right outside the building doesn't set a good example! A company that still has a lot to learn on professionalism.
