Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA (US)) in October 2016.

Interview

You get to have lunch with current employees before the interview begins, which really helps relieve any tension. The actual interview consists of 3 separate interviews back to back, where each interview consists of about 45 minutes. Although it is a long interview day, you get a decent break between each interview and they reach out to you with a decision within about 48 hours of the interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and told me to apply online.

    Received a quick phone call one week later to confirm answers to general questions like location preferences and where I attended university and to set up a date for an onsite interview.

    Flown into Richmond, VA another week later (I picked the earliest available date) where I stayed at a nearby hotel overnight. Next morning I was joined by about a dozen other candidates in a tour of the campus, lunch with several TDP full timers, and finally 3 back-to-back interviews. I had a technical interview first, followed by case, then a 15 minute break, and finally behavioral.

    Afterward, we were sent to the airport to head back home. Heard back another week later.

    Technical - choose whether to write on paper or the whiteboard. 3 questions.

    Case - general business scenario, talk about pros and cons, how would you solve this in code

    Behavioral - STAR questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university, got a call to a final round interview. Interview was 2 case questions about coding inefficiencies and data structures. Everyone was very friendly. Tried to interview in Virginia but had to go to Texas instead. Travel costs were not reimbursed but I never reached out to HR to fix that so it's probably more my fault

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had a preliminary interview at my college and then was asked to interview in McLean, VA. I was told to prepare for a case study interview which was something I had never done as a CS major. They had an info session where they talked about the case study and how to prepare for it so I did. I get to Capital One and have my standard behavioral and technical interviews. Then when it was time for the case study, two men came in and said they were trying something different and that I would instead have an interview on encryption. I hadn't yet taken a class on encryption and it was very unclear what they wanted me to do. I was so nervous and thrown for a loop because I had been preparing for something totally different. I got a call 3 days later saying I didn't get an offer. It all worked out though because I ended up getting an offer from Microsoft which was my first choice!
