    Senior Associate, Risk Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    It was a great experience up until the very end. Let me explain:

    I get a call from a recruiter, and we just briefly go over my resume and why I am making a change to a different company. The conversation went well so my next step was to take a math/verbal quiz before proceeding to the next step. I passed it, and then a few days later, I spoke with a manager from the department. We seemed to get along very well, so they decided to bring me in for a super-day the following week. I had back-to-backs with about 5-6 managers, and it was a great experience. Most of the questions were behavioral, situational, and some basic fixed income questions, which again, were manageable. I walked away thinking I hit it out of the park. I didn't get a call for at least a week so I reached out to the recruiter for an update. This is where my experience went extremely downhill. The recruiter said that everyone had a great time speaking with me, but it was ultimately decided that I was too senior for the role. That doesn't make sense because when I applied, I was just a risk analyst, not even senior. Additionally, many of the topics that I would touch upon on the new role, are things I never had experience with. I felt like it was a bs answer, and that my time was wasted from the beginning. They could have just looked at my resume from the beginning and ultimately decided that I was too senior, instead of waiting until the very end.

    Brand Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Had an initial call, then online assessment, another call, and finally a full day of interviews with about 6 members of the team. The recruiter gives details instructions every step of the way. Follow instructions to the T and you will be fine.

    Really enjoyed meeting everyone and learning more about this awesome company. I had more thought provoking conversations in 1 day than I do in a year. I did not however feel it would be a 100% culture fit for me.

    University recruiting, in-person interview round 1, power day round 2 on-site. Recruiter was nice - asks you to frame your answers in a very specific way which I did not like.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruiting and then was selected for an on site interview. The recruiter I worked with as well as everyone else I met was amazing! I think that Capital One really does an amazing job of connecting with and supporting their candidates through the interview process.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    I had a nearly identical experience as the poster directly below me. Excellent process (very informal and conversational), knocked it out of the park, and was rejected after days later after the recruiter failed to contact me for a week. Interviews like these, that are extensive and require time off of work, are such a sad waste of time, and money- the company is paying quite a bit to fly you out to their headquarters. I have to say that I’m overall disgusted at the end of it all. I’ve never felt so led on following an interview before. One of the interviewers even said to me “when you start working here, you’ll see...” what a bunch of fake bs!!! Have some respect for the people you’re bringing in to interview. Btw, I was offered a much better position at a different company paying a lot more than they were offering. I would NEVER work here after the experience I went through.

    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital One (Staten Island, NY).

    Interview

    Saw the job posting online. Applied directly through the website. Received an e-mail from HR about scheduling a phone interview. A couple of days later, we did the interview. It was very basic. Why are you looking for work here? Tell us about yourself? Previous experiences? Etc etc. Asked me to come in for an in-person interview at a local branch. Met with the branch manager and the head teller. Very straight forward process.

    The day consisted of three consecutive interviews: behavioral, case, and technical. The behavioral one was "tell me about a time" format, the case one was a business technology scenario, and the technical one was coding.
