    Summer Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university's career page and was contacted by a recruiter two weeks later asking to do a virtual interview. The virtual interview took about 30 minutes but you should definitely double check your sound system before starting the interview because even though my sound system was fine during the testing, the sound became faulty during the actual interview. Shortly after the interview, the recruiter contacted me within 3 days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a virtual interview of 4 to 5 questions, where you upload a video recordings of your answers. The whole process was somewhat unclear. Questions were all behavioral. They give you 3 days to complete the video interview process with no advance warnings, which was unfortunate for me because that week had been one of the busiest ones.

    The video system did not work for me initially, and I had to spend hours trying to figure out what was wrong. So be mindful of technical difficulties.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (Norfolk, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Send in an application in early Oct. Heard back the next day to set up a one way Skype type interview where you answered the questions that popped up on the screen into your webcam. Two days later, got a notice that I made it through to the 2nd round, which was an actual Skype interview. Later that day, I heard back that I got through to the Final Round on site in Norfolk, Va. They flew me out for an interview. The onsite was three 45 min interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • All behavioral questions and questions related to your resume. The different interviewers spoke to different things like strengths/weaknesses, teamwork, and presentation skills. They really walk you through the interview to direct you to answers they want answered. Pleasant experience overall, even without the offer in the end.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Standard phone interview. First interview was only 10-15 minutes general interest and a behavioral question. Second phone interview was about 45 minutes long and was more in depth. Many questions about my previous job history and if I was eligible for rehire there. About 4 Star type behavioral questions. Then a description of the position. Was not invited to continue on in the process. Interviewer was quite curt and rigid in questions and feedback.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I found the internship online in early September 2016, eventually got around to applying around September 28th (Wed), received an email asking for a first round on the 29th (Thurs), and had the interview on the 30th (Fri). The first round was a strange virtual interview process in which I was asked pre- recorded questions and my responses were recorded and stored to be viewed later. I received a call on the 4th of October (Tue) asking for a second interview. All around a very straightforward process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital Group (Norfolk, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online via Capital Groups careers webpage. Within 2 days, I was asked to submit a recorded interview that consisted of behavioral questions. Within a few hours of submitting the recorded interview I was asked to schedule a live video interview with a recruiter. The interview happened the following week and was once again all behavioral questions. A few days later I was emailed stating that my application was no longer being considered.

    Capital Group moves quickly but it was little disorganized. There were some technical difficulties with the website they use to schedule interviews. I was told when my live interview was to take place less than 2 hours prior to the appointment.

    Interview Questions

    • Why capital group? Describe a time when you had to learn differently. Describe a time you failed. Why this position?   Answer Question
