    Quantitative Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    No Offer
    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied after I talked with a recruiter at a job fair. I filled out the application online and received a call to schedule a phone call case study interview. Capital One provides you with the opportunity to do a practice case study interview before the real one, which I highly recommend and regret not taking. The case study discussed basic financial analysis and then communicating your recommendation based on said analysis. My biggest advice is LISTEN CAREFULLY. Things had gone smoothly for me up until I misheard something and was not able to calculate a correct number. Do this relax and I'm sure the interview will go smoothly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (University Park, TX).

    Interview

    It was a phone case interview problem. Capital one gives you a practice one online. It was challenging to do this over the phone since usually you can show your interviewer your work you had to talk out every single mathematical step.
