    Senior Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed for two senior level roles and was convinced that they were ready to extend an offer in both cases. I found out later from an insider that both positions went to internal hires with much less experience and no history of performing the job functions of the positions they were seeking to fill. My source also shared that they often interview external candidates for executive positions after having already decided on an internal transfer or promotion. This is simply done to check a box. What an incredible waste of time!

    Role In Irvine, CA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview

    Too long, lack of visibility. Weeks in between interview steps despite there being urgency to fill role. Did not move forward with interview process due to the duration - really did not seem like recruitment was respectful of candidate time/effort. Turns out they made an offer to someone else before I finished my interview rounds. So if anyone out there feels like they're in a holding pattern I would probably move on. They continue to build a large pipeline of candidates even though there is already a frontrunner. Decide if that's a place where you really want to be before getting your hopes up.

    Senior Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    4 interview - 2 phone 2 in-person. Overall went well, they were cordial and well informed at every level about my experience and their expectations of the role. Both in-person interviews were all day ones, they provided breaks and lunch. The recruiter was nice and helpful in preparation for the interviews. Lots of behavioral questions, "what would you do in XYZ situation...etc" All in all they tested me, but it's refreshing to see a company do that because you know that they are taking you candidacy seriously.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Phone call with a Talent Acquisition Business partner. She was not friendly at all. I had high hopes for the this company but before my interview i read some reviews and was like oh this cant be true but it was. She asks the basic questions about my background and resume. Seems like theres no room for growth to get in the Investment Management team. She basically told me it was a deadend job and thats all I’d be doing and very little chance of moving anywhere else in the company, literally.

    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capital Group (Irvine, CA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Initially I applied through Handshake and they followed up with an email including one of those one way interviews (containing a couple of questions - pretty straight forward). Then almost 2 months later is when I got invited to interview in person and they flew me out (hotel + food + uber + flight, all paid for which was extremely generous). The in-person interview was in January and contained four really insightful and wonderful interviewers. It was the most pleasant and eye opening interview process I have ever experienced.
