    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was a behavioral interview, a case interview, and a technical interview. They also had a current TDP give gave a tour of the campus and provided lunch, which allowed for us to ask them questions about everything. Nothing was too crazy, but definitely know data structures.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Spoke with the recruiter by phone, then the hiring manager, then was brought into the McLean office where I had phone/in-person interviews with 4 members of the team. Everything went well in the interviews and I was specifically told by my onsite contact to follow up with my recruiter. This sound great and all, until your recruiter falls off the face of the earth and doesn't response to multiple emails, calls, etc.

    Capital One HR should be ashamed of itself. I was never given a decision for months, and only after I pestered the general email address did I finally hear back from my recruiter. (This was also after the issue was escalated to my recruiters manager. He told them he called me and left me a message, which he never did)

    Takeaways: Capital One does not hire on based on work ethic, potential, etc. Either you've done the job and it's on your resume or they won't give you a chance. This is a safe way to recruit i guess, and in some ways it makes sense, but they're not going to find real talent with this approach.

    Their HR department should be ashamed of its tactics. Follow up with your candidates if you give them a final interview.

    Quantitative Analyst Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was contacted 2 weeks later by a Recruiter for a phone interview. I then had to take an online assessment that does not accurately capture your skills needed for the position. This is a pass or fail assessment. I passed, then had a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. A week later I had an in-person interview with the Hiring Manager, and 3 other Managers on the team. The Recruiter was very pleasant to work with, and extremely diligent in touching base throughout the process.

    Credit Delivery Principal Associate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I went through two rounds of interviews - an initial phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a first-round phone interview with the hiring manager.

    Interview with recruiter was essentially an overview of my resume - discussion about my past experience and why I left past employers. Nothing too challenging here.

    Interview with hiring manager was more in-depth. Covered my past experience with the hiring manager as well, but there were also a few behavioral interview questions. There was no case study during this interview.

    Since a few months have passed since the phone interview with the hiring manager and I haven't heard anything from Capital One, I'm left to assume that I'm not moving forward in the hiring process. Some sort of interview status update (even if it's just an automated email saying they're not interested) would have been nice.
