Associate Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in March 2014.

Interview

Was brought in for a tour and lunch, then interviewed through the standard behavioral and job fit process. The guides were very enthusiastic about selling the company, and I entered the interview much more excited about the potential for a role here. The interviews were very professional and did a great job putting me at ease and walking me through the process, answering all of my questions.

      case - the most challenging just because it's kind of unique type of interview; involves business and math
      technical - not hard at all compared to questions asked by big N companies; know your DS   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Wasn't like any other i've seen on here. Thought it was just supposed to be a Phone screen with the Hiring Manager. But turned out to be two Senior devs.

    They had pretty thick accents and their speaker phone kept have interference; making it hard to hear them.

    Was quick introduction then into like 50 straight technical questions. No high level, conceptual ,leetcode programming problems or DS and Algorithms. Everything was extremely specific even about technologies/languages even some not on my resume.

    Only feedback i got was ok, then next dev fired off another question.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capital One (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 2 months in its entirety.
    I was contacted by a recruiter after attending a Capital One sponsored hackathon and asked if I'm interested in a full-time Java Backend position. The following are the application process steps I went through:
    - Phone screening with the recruiter
    - Online code challenge (simple 3 questions on HackerRank with 2 hours limit)
    - Phone screening with Senior Software Engineer
    - In-person Interview (behavioral & technical) that took about 3 hours in total at their Toronto offices

    Good things:
    - Everyone was extremely friendly and laid back
    - No one cares about a dress code
    - Lots of newer technologies being used, which is not very common for a bank

    Bad things:
    - The recruiter was emphasizing that it's a Java Backend position, while the truth was it's an Associate Software Engineer.
    - The recruitment team has their own agenda, as I have been through a long technical interview where I was tested on HTML, CSS, JS, C++, Java, DataBase Design, OOP concepts, Data Structures & Algorithms, Swift, Responsive Design, among few other fields. (Discussing the GCD and multi-threading model of Swift isn't really something you ask an Associate Software Engineer IMHO, nevertheless, I answered perfectly)

    My biggest problem? My friend (probably not relevant, but worth mentioning that she's a white fresh diploma grad female with 1 year of professional experience) was interviewing with me. Her technical & social skills are not the best, so I helped her with all the interview prep and so. Eventually, she went through a 30 mins technical interview where she was asked if she is willing to learn new things at the job... She ended up getting the position, while they gave me a rejection after my 3-hour interview.

    I'm not sure what's going on with Capital One, but I'm sure something unethical was part of that hiring process.

    Behavioural Interview: follow the STAR method

    Technical Interview: You just have to say what kind of classes you would make for whatever the task is, and how they relate, and also what data structures you would use, and how you would use them. No coding is involved, but you might have to write out some of the stuff you discuss on a piece of paper (the general structure).
