    I worked at Capital Group

    Pros

    Great company culture built on open door policy and respect for the individual. Performers well rewarded and in general good opportunities available in terms of career growth. Great benefits, great pay.

    Cons

    Inability to remove ineffective employees, mainly due to rapid growth and no focus on effectively managing 'dead wood'. Senior Management out of touch with the realities of day to day Light's On and BAU.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of poor performers more quickly effectively and focus more time on strategic rather tactical solutions...

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capital Group.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume on their website, I was contacted via email to complete a "virtual interview". However, the day before I was scheduled to do it, a recruiter called me and set up a time to do a phone interview and told me not to worry about completing the virtual/digital interview. I was called the next day by her and completed the phone interview, which took about 30-40 minutes. She said she was going to refer me to the recruiters at the job location site since I seemed like a good fit. I was then contacted the next day and scheduled my face to face interviews. I was sent an email with a more thorough and formal application for the specific position, as well as some other paperwork consisting of background info and a few other questions for them to gauge your answers/responses to. The F2F interviews consisted of 2 interviews, one with a HR rep, then one with a Department Manager. After completing these interviews, we listened to a couple of mock phone calls to kind of show what our calls would be like, then ended with a tour of the campus and facilities. I was contacted a few days later and was asked to provide 4 professional references with at least 2 being former managers. This part of the vetting process took a couple of weeks and they did contact everyone and verified all information given, so be honest and accurate with EVERYTHING you answer or fill out. Finally, after about 3 1/2 weeks, I was contacted and offered the position, which I accepted. Very thorough hiring process, but this is the kind of company that is very desirable for anyone to work for. I believe they did a little over 100 face to face interviews for a 20 person class.

    Interview Questions
    • They reviewed my resume with me and asked several behavioral and situational questions, as well as desired salary requirements.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation process. I wasn't going to haggle over a few thousand dollars and risk losing a great opportunity like this. These people that are giving negative reviews of the interview or hiring process seem like they're bitter because they didn't get an offer...or chalk it up to "to each their own". It was a little tedious and a long, extensive vetting process, but everyone was very friendly and professional. I didn't expect anything less from a potential opportunity like this one. This is the kind of company you'd want to retire from. I have a few friends that have been there for a long time and they all LOVE the company.
