    I worked at Capital One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard working employees, good locations.

    Cons

    All about micro management. All about numbers and reports. Focus should be on making a pleasant place to work and caring more about the customers instead of numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Slow/ major turn over in retail.
