    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview

    Heavily behavioral but very different than any behavioral interviews I had done previously. They don't expect technical knowledge, but be prepared to feel like you are in a therapy session.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital Group (Irvine, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Went through a phone interview with a recruiter, and then the hiring manager, as well as a 4 hour interview with 4 different people. Although I didn't get accepted into the position, it was still very insightful to learn about the company. You could definitely hear the passion that they had for Capital Group.

    Investment Operations Summer Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very smooth and straightforward. All the questions were behavioral, as Capital really emphasizes getting to know you as a person. Here is a little about each round:

    * 1-way video screening: just a few behavioral questions, answer honestly and have a good story. You get some time to prepare, so it's not very stressful.

    * 30-minute Skype interview with HR: also behavioral, a lot of emphasis on your experience with teamwork.

    * Final on-site interviews: 3 45-minute 1-on-1 interviews, also all behavioral. The interviewers had a sheet of paper with questions, so the interview was structured, but there definitely was some conversational flow as opposed to just Q-and-A for the entire time.

    My best advice for the process is to be yourself and to really try to connect with the interviewers. Capital really wants to see who you are as a person, so be friendly and open.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all the questions were the standard "tell me a time when ..." questions with some follow-ups based on what you said.   1 Answer

    Applications Developer Associate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capital Group (Irvine, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was invited to a hiring event by one of the HR personnel to be part of a Early Career Hire program. It was essentially a networking event with two 15 minute time slots for individual interviews with Capital Group associates.

    If they liked you, you were invited back to a day of 4 rounds of back-to-back interviews followed by a lunch. Each interview was 1:1 with a department manager, except for one which was with a Vice President. The interviews were very conversational and comprised of mostly behavioral and situational questions. My interview with the VP was markedly harder than the others, but I later heard that he loved me.

    You won't have to worry about whiteboards or technical tests. However, be prepared to show your knowledge by speaking extensively on your experiences. They want to see what kind of person you are; why do you code, what do you do on your free time, what drives you?

    The whole process from the networking event to receiving an offer took 2 and a half months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital Group (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Interview process took a few weeks. First there was a self recorded interview where you answered 3 questions. I received a call the following day for a web interview. After the web interview I was set up for an interview on campus that took 2 1/2 hours with a group. Was interviewed by two different managers and then a tour of the campus. There were a lot of behavioral type of questions. One manager gets to know you and your experience, and the other is to understand how you will work based off situational questions. Everyone was very nice throughout the process, very detail oriented and they are on top of their schedules.
