    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university, got a call to a final round interview. Interview was 2 case questions about coding inefficiencies and data structures. Everyone was very friendly. Tried to interview in Virginia but had to go to Texas instead. Travel costs were not reimbursed but I never reached out to HR to fix that so it's probably more my fault

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and told me to apply online.

    Received a quick phone call one week later to confirm answers to general questions like location preferences and where I attended university and to set up a date for an onsite interview.

    Flown into Richmond, VA another week later (I picked the earliest available date) where I stayed at a nearby hotel overnight. Next morning I was joined by about a dozen other candidates in a tour of the campus, lunch with several TDP full timers, and finally 3 back-to-back interviews. I had a technical interview first, followed by case, then a 15 minute break, and finally behavioral.

    Afterward, we were sent to the airport to head back home. Heard back another week later.

    Technical - choose whether to write on paper or the whiteboard. 3 questions.

    Case - general business scenario, talk about pros and cons, how would you solve this in code

    Behavioral - STAR questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    You get to have lunch with current employees before the interview begins, which really helps relieve any tension. The actual interview consists of 3 separate interviews back to back, where each interview consists of about 45 minutes. Although it is a long interview day, you get a decent break between each interview and they reach out to you with a decision within about 48 hours of the interview.

    Interview

    This was an on campus interview, I applied online through my University's site, and was contacted after for an interview as an Alternate candidate. I am not sure if being an "alternate" affected my chances of getting an offer, but I did not get an offer for this internship.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One (Richardson, TX).

    Interview

    Met Capital One through my Club in College and I then went to the Career Expo to talk more about their internship. Applied through University, the application took 3 weeks. Scheduled an on-campus interview through the school. Went in with formal attire, the recruiter wore casual clothes and made me feel relaxed about the interview. The interview was casual and mostly an intro about yourself, your projects, and how well you know your stuff. They mostly want to know about your passion and what projects you've done.
