Case interview: basic business problem (if product X costs Capital One $4.00 per unit, with a $800 sunk cost, and we charge X amount of dollars along with a $10 annual fee, how many do we need to sell to break even, etc). Followed by a longer discussion of more complex problems that the situation might entail.

Mostly algebra, basic economics, and common sense.

total cost= 4x + 800 total income= x^2 + 10x to break even: 4x + 800 = x^2 + 10x solving for x by evaluating the quadratic equation above, x ~= 25.45 To break even, 26 units must be sold

Why is x^2?

Onsite case question were mostly Math based with logical conclusions to be withdrawn Case 1: All bank terms with value were given like %APR , ROI, transaction types etc. and Profit/Loss was asked to calculate. Case2: Call center data with numbers. X number of Call Centers with Y number of employees and their effective time of response for a call in minutes. What is the average of each center, if one employee is dropped off call what should be the level of response. The case interviewer clearly makes you understand the situation with hints. You got to answer the proper numbers with conlusions. Behavioural round is pretty straight forward and like any other HR rounds. There were 10 people interviewed on same day. The process is arranged properly with accommodation and food facility. Cap One did best to make sure the candidates are given proper facility.
