    Digital Product Owner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    At the beginning, I was highly impressed by the folder I was handed by HR - A nice agenda for the day and the people I am going to meet! I could have never predicted what was going to happen next:

    The HR coordinator said that I'm supposed to have lunch with one of my interviewers. However, he was an hour late and asked that we eat separately.

    Then, during the interview, he had one earpiece in on a conference call.

    Overall it was good and I was asked a few days later to take a computerized test. I was informed that I passed it and then I never heard back from the company, despite various communication attempts on my end.

    Technology Development Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I came in through a referral and from a target school (Berkeley) of Capital One's TDP Program. As a result, I was expedited to a final round interview and flown to Texas for a full day. The interview consisted of 3 parts - behavioral, case question, and technical. The technical question was extremely easy to solve as compared to other Bay Area tech company interviews, and it seems like they deemphasized technical prowess in favor of job fit and overall team-working ability. However every other aspect of the interview went smoothly, the recruiter was communicative and no obstacles with the process itself.

    Finance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Reached out to a recruiter and I flew to Virginia for a super day. Flight and all expenses paid. There was a behavioral interview, fit interview, and a case study. The interviewers were very friendly and did not ask questions that were too difficult. Make sure to have questions prepared as they seemed very interested and eager to answer them. Case studies involved basic algebra for break even analysis, but information to solve the case is only verbally given to you so it is easy to make mistakes. Make sure to be organized in your scrap sheet of paper as this is collected and perhaps analyzed. Following the interview we had a tour of the campus and lunch with some associates. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience.

    Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter out of the blue. Several phone interviews later and they flew me out to Virginia. Interview process was intense! I've never experienced the full day interview like Capital One. All VP's and Senior Directors I encountered were top notch and the recruiter was on top of the process. Even though I didn't get the position, it was a positive experience and I'll likely look at Capital One in the future.

    Practice basic behavioral interview questions and scenarios related to the position you're applying for.

    Technology Development Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online, and a few weeks later I received a call from a recruiter to set up an on site interview at the McLean campus. They flew me in and put me up in a nice hotel for a night, and my interview was the day after.

    First came an informal lunch with two former TDP members, now full time employees, and other applicants.

    Then the interviews begin after a short break. There are three interviews, each around 45 minutes long: case interview, job fit interview, and behavioral interview.

    The behavioral interview is very straightforward. Just answer questions about past situations and any follow up questions. Explain why you did what you did, and use the STAR format in your answers.

    The job fit interview is a standard technical interview. If you know your data structures, then it's not difficult.

    The case interview is the only thing I'm somewhat bitter about. It was a completely financial case, and unless you're familiar with them, it is very stressful and confusing. I barely arrived at the answer, and by the end of the interview any positivity the interviewer had was gone and he was constantly peeking at his phone. The materials provided by Capital One to practice for the case interview are insufficient, so you'll have to find practice materials elsewhere.

    Overall, though, the experience was pleasant, and this seems like an awesome company to work for. I'll definitely be applying for a full time position next year.
