    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting and was brought in for an on-campus case interview. This was followed by 2 online assessments - one behavioral and one quantitative. After these, I was invited for an on-site interview with some other OA candidates. We had 2 case interviews and 1 behavioral interview before lunch, and then a small handful of people, including myself, were kept after lunch for an additional case. I found out within a week that had received an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was super nervous for the case interviews, but unexpectedly, the behavioral interview threw me off more than the cases.

      Name a time when you had to convince someone to do something that they did not want to do. (something along those lines)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Step 1. Phone interview with recruiter
    Step 2. Online personality test and aptitude test
    Step 3. Five interviews back to back. 2 were behavioral and 3 case interviews.

    *Everyone was super duper nice.
    *The whole HR and recruiting team was very helpful from the beginning. Told me how should I prepare and what should I expect on the interview day
    * Case interviewers were very helpful BUT had a few communication issues as English is not my first language and wasn't my interviewers first language yet I managed to solve it/
    * Behavioral interviews are very stream lined. You are asked 3 questions about your past experience and you have 40 minutes to answer them + Ask questions of your own.

    I worked very hard for 2 months for this interview (in all).
    - Practice as many tests as you can before online assessment
    - Go over your resume and prepare stories for each job position
    - Practice as many cases as you can with friends and family

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Capital One booked a train down to Richmond, VA for the interview. Went on a tour of the campus, met with other employees who explained different career paths. The first day consisted of a mostly casual meet and greet. Second day featured three case interviews and two behavioral interviews. The behavioral interviews were standard, questions about leadership, working as a team, etc. Case interviews were fun and challenging, be sure to practice different business scenarios based on efficiency and cost effectiveness.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the case interview questions revolved around improving the business model of a ferry crossing a river in regards to changing traffic and cost scenarios. They were looking for strategic thinking to find ways to make the ferry business more efficient.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Capital One in April 2012.

    Interview

    one behavioral, two case interviews. they interview tons of students from across the nation so try to be prepared as possible for the case interviews.

    the company culture seems extremely relaxed. talking to the employees (at least the younger ones), they seem to talk a lot about how little work they do.

    Interview

    On the cases it is definitely worth your time to take your time. Think things through because I eventually got the right answers but only after prodding from the interviewer.
