I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One

Interview

To start, I want to say that the communication with the recruiter was wonderful throughout the process. As others have stated, started with the recruiter screening, followed by a take home assessment. Then came the power day and this is where things went downhill. Four hours straight with absolutely no breaks. Round 1: the worst of the 4. The design portion. I had prepared extensively for my thoughts on how I would go about answering this portion only to be met with a interviewer who continuously interrupted me and explained that I hadn’t yet solved for a part of the question as I was literally explaining my solution for that part. He wanted a very specific answer and any variance was unacceptable. He was rude, and quite frankly disrespectful. I left round 1 feeling as though I no longer even wanted to work for this company. Round 2 was marginally better by comparison. I had two interviewers who could not seem less interested in being there. They gave me the coding questions and as I solved for it they were essentially silent. One of the questions asked for an output of the index of two specific numbers, and the interviewer pointed out it was wrong until I explained it is outputting the index as the question states to do, not the numbers themself. And so he had be modify my answer to output the numbers instead. Round 3: this round was a typical behavioral interview and I mostly enjoyed speaking to my interviewers. At this point I was positively turned off by this entire experience. Round 4: case study. This portion was odd though not horrible. My interviewer was nice, but I don’t understand how this portion at all displays engineering abilities. Overall I’ve experienced far more pleasant and productive interviews. If your power day involves sending out resources to cram and study for so that interviewees can pass, then there’s an issue. I do not recommend this experience at all, and I do not hope to interview with them in the future.

A code screen and then a couple of rounds of in-person interviews conducted all on campus. Nothing too tricky, and it felt like they were just putting me through the grinder with everyone else. Got to go to a visit to their campus as well.

Overall good hiring process. Started with a somewhat difficult hacker rank which was followed by an HR phone call and then an onsite interview (pre Covid). The interviewers were very nice.

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Capital One in Apr 2021

Interview

I applied through an external site. I received a request to do a phone interview. It was your standard phone interview, and it went well. They asked me if I had a Bachelor's, to which I said no. The rest of the call went fine, and we agreed to have follow up interviews. I emailed them a few days later to check on the status of that, and was told that since I didn't have a bachelor's, that I was no longer under consideration for any role. The bachelor's degree is a requirement. I guess that's fine, but I had in my resume that I had received my associates in 2013, and I have been working in the field since then. If that's such a hard requirement, make sure it's met before starting the interview process.

I interviewed at Capital One (Fairfax, VA) in Mar 2021

Interview

Online Coding Test then four round powerday Case Study and Debugging Architecture and System Design Behavioral LeetCode Algorithms Felt pretty well about everything apart from the algorithm problems as I didn’t run any code in the hankerrank coding pair. It also couldn’t use my preference of language as it wasn’t supported. It could have easily been solved with regex but you can’t look anything up. Also a very bad interviewer for that round, they were silent the entire time and not interactive. Didn’t seem like they wanted to be there. You have to be lucky on the interviewers. It’s also very exhausting. Please change it to be split over days. Not everyone can take the time out of work for 4-5 hours of straight interviews

Interview

Underwhelming and not challenging, but their are things you just have to be ready for. What I just couldn't put together and probably made me look incompetent was just knowing to say API instead of server or network to the question of how services talk to eachother, so it is just little things like that that, like in most interviews, you just have to be ready and know.

Interview Questions
  • How would you refactor this code? And it was literally just consolidating if statements into while loops and moving them around.
