    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone screen that would involve math based questions. Everything seemed normal until the actual phone call happened. During the phone screen I was constantly interrupted while answering questions on my background. When we got to the math questions the first question I was asked was one involving ratios. I answered the question correctly as it was asked but I was told I was wrong. I respectively asked the recruiter to explain why I was wrong and when she did the math still did not seem correct. I was told that I was not a good fit so the interview ended there. I followed up with an email challenging the question that was asked and explaining how I got to my answer. I then received an email back with the a slightly different question and it was insinuated that I must have misheard even though I had the recruiter repeat the question back to me when I first heard it. This was by far the most disrespectful interview I have ever encountered and would advise anyone to clarify any questions asked.

    Interview Questions

    • Originally asked: If the ratio of green to red is 2 to 7 and there are 70 total marbles, how many green are there?
      Amended question after email: If the ratio of green to red is 2 to 7 and there are 70 red marbles, how many green are there?
