    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capco.

    Interview

    Had initial phone screening with HR, who was very nice and informative. She was responsive and transparent throughout the process. After speaking with some of the Partners, the company seems to have a positive culture and I'd recommend applying for a role if you're interested in Consulting

    Senior User Experience Writer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY (US)) in January 2021.

    Interview

    The interview process took less than a month! Capco's recruiting team is very efficient in scheduling interviews and getting the ball rolling. There was an initial phone screen where I really hit it off with the recruiter, then 3 rounds of interviews with different team members. No writing assignment.

    All the interviewers I've gotten to chat with are very experienced and knowledgeable in their fields, and it's obvious to me that they want to nurture talent. I heard back from interviews pretty much the next day. The offer came only 3 days after the final interview! It's amazing.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The actual interviewing process was thorough and went as expected. Initial screening done by recruiter, then you speak with two-three other developers to determine technical level and knowledge, then you move onto the coding challenge. Standard data manipulation using javascript. Then you move onto an interview with a senior level employee to see if you seem like a good fit for the role and company.

    The reason why I gave a negative experience is because of the ambiguity of the salary negotiations from the beginning. I gave the recruiter a range between Y-Z and was offered below Y. That was followed with a guise of promotions and bonuses. Capco follows a strict consulting model so don't expect to make up for your low salary until after 2-3 years. At the end of it the recruiter said he/she was negotiating too much for me.

    In my opinion Capco should have been up front about the salary in the first place. They wasted everyone's time

    IT Production Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    It sounds like the job description was written by the client and given to Capco - it was missing a lot of critical skills requirements and details that were important for the candidate to have and they did not match my skills and experience. It may have just been erroneously assigned all together. The recruiter who reached out to me was great, and did connect me with the position because my skills fit the description, but there was a missing link in requirements and position details that wasn't discovered until the second round of interviews where I think my next interviewer discovered this would not be a fit for me. The recruiting coordinator called me directly to let me know the position was pulled (likely to reevaluate description and requirements) and that my interview was cancelled - she was so pleasant and responsive I really appreciated her taking that extra step, instead of just sending an email.

    Associate Talent Program (ATP) Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through campus career services. 1st round was was a behavioral interview with one of the consultant. The interviewer seemed very unenthusiastic. He started off by saying "it'll be a behavioral interview and I will ask you questions that HR gave me" and basically went on to pick standard fit/behavioral questions from a list.

    A week or so later, another consultant reached out saying I didn't move on to the next round followed by another email a week later from a different person saying the same thing and apologizing for the delayed notification. Very weird that two different persons notified me of the rejection. Seems like no coordination on the recruiting front.

    Associate Talent Program (ATP) Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I had a screening and a virtual interview. Screening was short with some behavioral questions; have research done on the management consulting industry, company, and ATP program.

    The interview was fairly standard and seemed as if it would be done after 20 minutes until I was asked a brainteaser after I had finished asking the interviewer questions. It was somewhat unexpected. Capco wants to see how you think, but I am personally not a fan of these brainteasers. I believe case questions concerning the business field would be more appropriate here.

    Had I moved on, the next stage would have been a 70-minute group interview involving a case question and presentation.
