    Associate Talent Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, I submitted my resume through my college's job posting board and Capco choose a few people based off their resume to interview in person. Next step was an on campus interview with 2 Capco employees. These questions were very basic, why consulting? tell us about yourself, talk about your experience, etc. Lastly, there was the big assessment interview day in NYC which consisted of a group activity, individual activity, and 6 round-robin interviews. The group interview was roleplaying a team situation where you have to prepare a presentation to a client. The individual activity was a 20 minute reading packet and having to summarize it into a brief email. The round-robin interview questions were more critical thinking/ thought process questions. For these questions, they're more interested in how you get to your answer rather than the answer itself.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First round is on-campus interview, mostly behavioral. Went to Assessment Center Day two weeks later. The rapid fire questions were not so bad as I had heard about and the interviewers were actually pretty nice. Then there's an email drafting activity and a group case. The case performance really depends on your team quality.

    Management Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Standard interview process, wherein I had a conversation with the recruiter who said my resume had the right skill set for their management consultant position (more on that in point 4) which was then followed by an interview with 3 thirty-minute rounds and a case study.

    As soon as you walk in, you are given the case study (client is looking to implement a trade capture tool, so what are your priorities within the first 3 weeks) and the 3 individuals come in to interview you. Let me get into why this was such a horrible interview process (and why it's likely a blessing in disguise that I didn't receive this offer):

    1) All of the interviewers were late and didn't seem very interested in my responses to their questions (e.g. would look around the room as opposed to making eye contact). One of the interviewers was actually waving to her colleagues while I was walking through my resume.

    2) They consistently bashed the Big 4 consulting firms yet all of the other candidates I met (who presumably received offers) were from the Big 4. I had a feeling that I wouldn't get the position as they would use the other candidates' Big 4 experience as a selling point to their clients, while I didn't have any consulting experience.

    3) I was able to answer all of the questions from the interviewers and completed the case study with ease. However, upon receiving the follow up call from the recruiter the next day (was supposed to be in the morning but I received it in the late afternoon), I was told that my skill set wasn't what they were looking for.

    4) As a follow up to point 3, the recruiter asked me what I thought about the interview before telling me that I didn't get the role because I didn't have the right skill set. I'm not sure what the purpose was behind this.

    My word of advice would be to pay attention to some of the reviews on this organization as even from what they say it's a "body shop" wherein you do the grunt work for their clients.

    Also, you can always tell how committed an organization truly is to their employees by how they treat their potential hires, and my experience was very negative to say the least.
