    Business Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The entire interview process was pretty pleasant. The interviewers were all really friendly, knowledgeable, and honest about their experiences at Capital One. They'd all been there at least 7 or 8 years and clearly enjoyed their jobs. I had a first round phone interview that dove straight into a case, and found out a few days later that I'd be having an in-person super day the next week. Two cases, very numbers-heavy, and a product interview that was more creative business thinking. I was nervous and definitely made a few mistakes while I was working through my cases, but I worked through my thought process with the interviewers and they were very helpful. Product interview was really fun! In general, I tried to stay relaxed and friendly, and act as if I was already a part of the team.

    They took care of my travel, hotel, and food expenses and there was a cute goody bag with snacks and travel gear waiting at the hotel. There were a few other candidates in my group who were clearly very intelligent and friendly, too. The only unpleasant aspect to the whole process was that I didn't find out about my phone interview until the day before so it felt pretty rushed.

    Interview Questions

    • Break even analysis and market entry calculations, more math heavy than traditional consulting-style cases. Plus the more creative-thinking product interview.   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    6 rounds of one-on-one interviews: 2 business case, 2 job fit, 1 behavioral, 1 role play. Case, behavioral, and role play are predictable as long as you do your homework and read through other reviews. Job fit is highly flexible--the managers may ask anything relevant to your resume and your background. I failed on job fit. Be prepared.

    Product Management/Business Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A phone case study interview of 45 min (was given only 30 min since the interviewer had to attend a meeting). The case study was fairly easy. Followed by any questions you have about the company and the role.

    Note to Capital One HR: Not giving the stipulated time to the candidate will not result in a fair assessment. If you expect to conduct a phone interview, at least make sure your analysts have a free schedule for the interview time slot.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my school career site. Received an on campus interview a few weeks later. It was called a technical behavioral. They asked a few questions like

    Tell us about a time you manipulated data
    Name one or two technical concepts you learned and how you applied them
    What experience do you have with extracting data? (SQL queries)

    Two days later I was invited to an on campus interview at Plano, TX. There I had 1 behavioral and 2 case interviews. The behavioral asked the following:

    Tell me about a time you had to learn something to complete your job
    Tell me about a time where you had to ask for help and who/why you asked

    The case interviews were standard I think (first time doing any) and I feel that if I had practiced at all then I would have done better and got the job. Overall it is a cool company and I'm pretty bummed I didn't get the job but that's just more motivation for next time.
