Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Harrison, NY (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Harrison, NY (US)) in January 2018.

Interview

I was sent an email by the recruiter to interview and take a few online assessments. When I replied to confirm the day/time, she never responded. I followed up two more times in the span of 3 weeks since it was the holidays- no response. If you’re going cancel my consideration, be upfront about it and don’t waste candidates’ time. If this is how they treat external candidates, I can’t imagine how employees are actually treated!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had an interview with HR that went well. Progressed to hiring manager. The interview consisted of two questions. The manager immediately communicated her disinterest in continuing the conversation. Asked if I had any questions. Yes, I have one! "Why would I want to work for you?"
    Sorry, if you are going to interview people sound a little excited about the department you manage and hire for. Don't waste my time! Its no wonder this particular position has been posted forever.

    Interview Questions

    • Very surface-y question about my previous experience that dripped with a tone that said "I'm bored and not really interested in hearing your response."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    Online tests, skype interview and on-site interviews. I was initially told that I was brilliant at maths and strategy thinking, which got my hopes up. I wasn't invited past the video-interview as apparently this time my maths was bad. Very disappointed not by being declined, but by being manipulated.
