    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capco.

    Interview

    A 3rd Party Recruiter reached out to me for a Consultant position. She did not seem very knowledgeable about the role I as I had to explain quite a bit of concepts to her.

    Interview Questions

    • Her questions were very general except for when she was reading the requisition. She seemed to be hedge over the relocation point which she should have known .   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews with the recruiter and then a phone interview with a Manager in Cap Markets. The recruiter told me that the manager just wanted to have a brief convo regarding my background. That was a lie, the entire phone interview was case base. The Manager told me that he would like me to speak with a Manager from Risk because my background was more aligned with Risk. Afterwards, I never heard back with any of them. I emailed both the Manager and recruiter to see next steps and neither responded. It’s fine if you do not want to move forward with me, but it is professional to at least communicate that. Was really frustrated with that. Good thing is, I bumped into a new hire at my current employer who came from Capco who said it was a horrible experience. Seems like it worked out in my favor.

    Interview

    Received an unsolicited email from a woman who identified herself as “one of the key recruitment business partners” working at Capco London Office. She came across my profile and would like to speak to me about a senior role in NY Office.
    I responded and we agreed to a date and time to speak.
    She was a no show.
    After waiting 20 minutes for her call, I sent a message reminding her of the appointment. Unfortunately, no response.
    6 weeks later: no call, no email and obviously no apology.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (Houston, TX (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Less than 30 mins - basic personality questions and the "walk me through your resume" question. A couple case like scenarios. "What would you do if _____?" and then they built on that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco (Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA (US)).

    Interview

    The process was a mess from the start. The recruiter called me at work without emailing, then changed the time the day of our interview by thirty minutes while I was coming from an hour away. Meanwhile, she took accountability with me on the phone but not her colleagues and as I was leaving they mentioned twice to me that I had failed to make the third interview 😂😂😂 meanwhile she frantically texted me all day about her email not working. So completely unprofessional.

    Interviewed in person on campus. Then was offered the opportunity to go to their super day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    So I applied through my university and was notified that I was selected to interview with Capco. I was away from my school so I had a phone interview with a rep from Capco. They basically asked me to run through my resume and the standard behavioral questions. It was pretty easy on honestly a low-key casual conversation. About two days after the phone interview I was notified that I was invited to New York for the second and final round.

    They pay for accommodations (you're given a budget) if you are coming from outside the NY region. I arrived early for the interview and was just waiting in a room with some other. They divided us in groups that we traveled with for the rest of the day. Part 1 was a rapid fire round with three consultants and they just asked questions to see how you operate under pressure. Keep your cool and you'll do fine. Round two we watched a video and had to take notes on the video that we watched. I thought that this was the hardest part as the people talked fast and you are not given anywhere near enough time to write down notes (the point of it all). Part three was a group case study. I had a good group and we worked well together. Note, they watched as my group and I were discussing so be sure to "act". Overall what I expected and a well run day. I just interviewed two days ago and we were told that we would hear the following week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was carried out on my school's campus, and it seemed they were determining if you had experience in the financial world or with case presentations.

    The second round was in their HQ in NYC. The first part of it was watching a video of a meeting (they had British accents so it made it harder to understand them) and you had 18 mins to take down minutes of it. The second part was the individual questioning. I spent 7-8 minutes each with a 3 associates and while the first minute or two were introductory questions, the rest of the time was brain teaser questions. The third part was a group case, where you were given a case and worked with your group for 25 minutes to put together the presentation.
