    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    wasn't too bad but wasn't that easy either. definitely review your data structures and brush up on your problem solving skills because you will need to understand certain programming technicalities that you may have forgotten

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, recruiter reached out to me two months later. And was invited to a Superday at Plano office. Interview was very similar to the prep material, except the case was nothing like the practice case they gave. The case was much more technical and system design oriented rather than business oriented. This made it pretty easy for me. Behavioral were very standard questions you’ve probably been asked before. Technical was actually more difficult than I expected. System design, LC easy, and LC medium. Have to do all three problems in 45 mins. The time crunch is what made it the most difficult. I did pretty well on the case and behavioral, but messed up the technical interview. Got a phone call 2 days later saying they weren’t offering me the TDP role right now but feel I will be a good fit for it in a few months. So they extended me a different offer for their Developer Academy program (CODA) which is a 6-month long boot camp that prepares you for TDP. After the boot camp is over you automatically become a part of TDP. Base salary for CODA is 15k lower than TDP but you get bumped up after the 6 months to the normal TDP salary. I would’ve accepted TDP because it’s a great program, but not sure if I will accept CODA as I have a strong CS background and feel it is a waste of 6 months when I could be a software engineer somewhere else. It just wasn’t my day and messed up on the technical portion which is why I didn’t get the offer I wanted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Get a behavior, case and technical interview. They can be in any order. However If you're unlucky you'll have a bad interviewer. I had a bad technical interviewer that had no idea what she was doing and she did not provide any guidance. All she said was "ok" and "any last touches." No guidance whatsoever and she was socially awkward so I have no idea how she was picked as an interviewer. It really depends on luck to get a good interviewer. My case and behavior were nice. Behavior question was standard. Case interview varies. It's a lot of high level technical questions for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out over email ~1 week after I applied (online through university career portal) for more information. A couple days after that I was invited to interview at a Superday in Plano.

    There are 3 interviews which are exactly as have been described before online. If you are confident in your technical skills focus on preparing for the case interview, it's a bit of a departure from a normal tech interview.

    The tech interview itself or the 'job fit' is very reasonable and language agnostic. The behavioral is exactly as they describe it as well.

    Make sure to ask a lot of clarifying questions, as it seems to be an important point for them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a reply to do a on-site interview in 2 weeks. The onsite included a tour and a lunch as well as 3 rounds of interview 45 mins each. They were behavioral, case, and technical. The behavioral was standard, the case was semi businessy and semi-technical, but was relatively easy. However, the technical portion was a time crunch because it included a design question as well as 2 medium level leet code questions, and you had to write out your code fully on paper within 45 minutes.

    Interview

    Consisted of a case interview, behavioral interview, and a technical (coding) interview. The coding portion was more rigorous than the other two. The position is more so tailored to those who are proficient in coding and debugging code.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One in February 2019.

    Interview

    Applied on my university job board. Had an invitation for an on campus final round interview composed of 3 parts: behavioral, technical, and case interviews. Each part lasted about 45 minutes. Behavioral was decent, many questions asking about tell me a time...,etc. The case portion was not bad, it was mostly to show the interviewer how you think when you solve problems. The technical interview was probably the most challenging part, though the questions were not too bad, but rather since there is a time constraint and there is definitely more pressure when you are coding on paper while being assessed. The interviewers were really nice though, and despite not receiving the offer, I thought the interview process was a positive experience.
