    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a referral and was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone call later that week. It was just a simple get-to-know-you phone call. After that, I was invited to the final interview on-site. This consisted of the 3 interviews have mentioned. Everyone I met at Capital One was friendly and open about their experience working there. I received an offer a few days after the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with Capital One at my school's career fair. I got offered an onsite interview. They flew me out to Richmond the day before and I interviewed the next day. The onsite consists of three 45 minute rounds: job fit (technical), case study, behavioral. The technical interview was pretty easy (1 design question + 2 algorithm questions) and the behavioral portion was pretty standard as well. The case study kinda threw me off because I've never done a case study for a software position before, but the interviewers do a great job guiding you through the entire process. The case was very intuitive and it was mostly a test on your problem solving skills. I heard back with an offer 4 business days later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Simple process. Applied online, and received a notification saying that I had been invited to a final round interview in Virginia. Flew out for the interview which involved a campus tour, a casual lunch with full-timers, and then the three part interview process. The interview process involved a case interview, behavioral interview, and a technical portion. The process went by quickly, and resulted in a very quick turn around.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Met them on campus and applied online. I was contacted over email asking if I could come down to the Richmond location from Maryland. The follow up email contained a lot of prep material and details about the day. Capital One put me in a hotel and paid for my expenses for the whole trip.
    After arriving at the campus, we were split into groups of ~4 and taken on a tour by current employees. Thiis part was informal and my guide was very easy going and answered a lot of our questions about the work environment and how the rotations work.
    The formal part of the interview had 3 parts, behavioral (pretty standard), technical, and case. The technical part was a few coding questions on the whiteboard. While not terribly difficult, it is hard to think of all the different input cases so make sure to consider all possibilities when coding. The case interview for the technical position was not like the prep (business) video they sent. It was basically a coding problem in a business setting. The coding part was pretty easy but for this part they care more about your problem solving and analytical skills.
