    Commercial Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capital One (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    This was the most bizarre and drawn out process I have experienced. Several phone interviews. Little to no communication on when next interview was coming. Finally went into a “power day”, which is a panel interview set-up. Direct Manager seemed nice. Her boss (Director) was arrogant, and asked me the same question repeatedly. It was clear they were trying to get down to a specific answer, but my philosophy was different from theirs. She said, “well let’s move on from that question so that you don’t start making up an answer”. As an established professional, it turned me off, and I felt it was highly insulting. In the end, they wanted me to come back for another interview, I declined.

    Also, money out of pocket spent on parking, food, etc while overnight for the interview took over a month to be reimbursed.

    Contract Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I went through a series of 5 interviews on 4 different occasions. The first 4 interviews went well and each time I was 'cleared' to move on to the next interview. The final interview was with one of the executives who gave an awkward interview and kept me there for two hours. About 2-weeks later, Capital One turned me down for the position, and the whole process ended up being a huge waste of time and inconvenience. The way the company's representatives led me through such a lengthy interviewing process was very unprofessional. There's no reason they couldn't have made a decision earlier in the process and saved everyone a lot of time and effort.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Brookings, SD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    An interview committee of three members of upper management interviewed me. They asked me various questions about my use and comfort level using technology, and how my teaching background would be beneficial in this job as a corporate trainer. As of today, (August 3, 2016), I am waiting to hear if I got the job or not. I left the interview feeling very hopeful.

    Outbound Sales Interview

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

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Job fair at Capital One site. Multi interviews regarding different aspects. Computer tests and one on one review of experience. Well planned. Interview review of resume, then computer testing (2 hrs) Phone interview was further screening...offer job next day. But not clear on job duties while at the fair.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Very basic questions that are rather reviews about your resume. The roll play was much easier to pass than other industries. I overwhelmed them, but I was over qualified. Bad for me as the position was frustrating because of that...for me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    NOOOO negotiation.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It was simply a phone interview with a Director and Manager. FT employees can't meet contractors in person. They both seemed very busy and were just going through the motions because they needed someone there as quickly as possible

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview via email with agency for Capital One. I was able to provide my documentation and application online and complete any questions online. I interviewed with the Capital One person who was authorized to approve my hire. As a Contractor, I can only communicate with the agency representative for Capital One. It was easy to communicate with the contracting agency about the job but I found it also easy to inform them of any trends at Capital One so they will be better informed of the working environment and attitude of the company and be able to meet or offer services to meet those needs.

    Negotiation

    Simple. Employment is better than no employment during the current Deep Recession.

    Interview

    I had a recruiter screening via phone. From there, I was asked to take a timed test (3 sepate sections covering reading comprehension, math, and behavioral). Upon passing the test, I attended an interview day (called a power day) with several other candidates. Interview questions were a mix of behavioral scenarios and job fit conversations.

    Performance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Behavioral Interviews give you the opportunity to share detailed information about how you've performed in previous work-related situations. We'll ask you to share examples of specific situations that you've encountered and dealt with in the past. Most interviews are scheduled for one hour and may include up to four questions.

    Your interviewer will be interested in specific situations and the actions you took to address them. When responding to Behavioral Interview questions it will be helpful to follow a SITUATION, ACTION and RESULT approach.

    Mostly comprised of a simple test on Data interpretation(Basic) and then a few case interviews on the topics given on the website such as Capital one Products like Auto loans, Credit cards, Mortgages. The case interview is led by you so asking the right questions is important and it's important to write everything as you do it and show your work.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on the job site and was called by a recruiter the following day to set up a 30 min chat. After the chat I took the IQ and Personality test (I'd highly recommend reviewing the review-material they send you!!). Once I found out I passed the tests I spoke directly with the Sr. Director (who I'd be reporting to). We had another 30 min chat, then I was brought in for the "Power Day" of interviews (which ended up being about 2.5 weeks after the original phone call with the recruiter). The power day consisted of 2 1:1 interviews with a bunch of "tell me about a time when..." questions, and then a "Job Fit" interview. All were 45 mins (with 1 45 min break). I was called a week later with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to implement a new process? Be as detailed as possible.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you made a mistake and how did you recover?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate but do your research, they seem to be VERY fair employers.
