    Associate Talent Program Interview

    Interview

    The over all interview process was straightforward. Nothing a lot of people on here haven't already posted. I made it through the initial round of interviews and was invited to the New York office for the last round of interviews. It was actually very enjoyable and you get a really good feel for the overall culture of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The group task was the most difficult portion. Even if you do pretty well on all other potions of the day, you really can't prepare for how you will interact with your group members. Just keep a level head and don't make it obvious you're vying for attention--everyone else in the group will do that and it makes everyone look worse than I'm sure they really are.   Answer Question

    Capco Associate Program Interview

    Interview

    apply online. contacted with a terrible HR. she forgot to reach out to me twice. she is really very impatient. I am senior student. she asks me some silly questions: what's your plan after your graduate; do you apply for your OPT? (I am an international student, I explain to her that I can only apply for OPT three month before I start to work, I did not have job offers currently, therefore, I did not apply..) Maybe she is really very busy and did not left any time for me to ask questions—the worst HR I've ever known....

    Application

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

    Interview

    HR reached out to me about a interview day they were having. Capco has been having these superdays alot lately. Literally 3 a week since December 2012.

    Initial, convo with HR was going thru the resume. Pretty much wanted to make sure you can communicate verbally.

    At the interview day, I met with 4 people - a mix of managers, senior consultants and principals. There was no case study, but I think that was only because I carried myself as a consultant; being confident, not cocky and speaking the lingo. Went thru my resume with each one and highlighted PROJECT MANAGEMENT related skills. Make sure to highlight these especially if you dont have experience within consulting before.

    Since they are hiring like crazy, I got a call back a few days later with an offer.

    Push to be apart of the CAP program training. Its good experience for those w/o consulting exp.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I made it to the assessment centre where I faced 3 rounds of tests: individual assessment, quick fire interviews, and a group assessment.

    Individual assessment - In my opinion this test was by far the hardest. You receive two bundles of paper, which you need to read through quickly in order to carry out a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) analysis for prioritising events.
    The first bundle of paper is very technical (i.e. launch of new software for a bank) and you shouldn't understand too much of the information. However I think they do this on purpose as a consultancy role often requires filtering through information that is not always familiar. You just have to work to your strengths with this one. The second bundle consists of emails from employees who need time off work or are sick, etc. This bundle is much more straight forward.

    Quick fire interviews - This is very similar to speed dating. There are 5 Capco interviewers and you spend 5 minutes with each. You should be concise with your answers so the interviewers can ask more questions and get to know you better. The questions they ask revolve around your personal background, CV based questions, and a few competency questions. I think with these interviews they want to know more about your personality and if you're the right fit for Capco. Some of the interviewers also ask if you have any questions for them, so it's good idea to prepare some questions at this stage if you haven't done so already.

    Group assessment - between the group you will receive a bundle of paper with a business scenario (i.e. a merger or acquisition between two companies). You must come to a conclusion about the scenario and give a little 5 min presentation at the end to summarise. As with most group assessments I believe the process of the assessment is more important than the outcome itself.
