    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (Wilmington, DE (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied Online, pre-screen with HR, then a reading comp and math test, I passed, then a meeting with the hiring manager. The Hiring manager was in her car so I couldn't hear her. She had only been in banking for a year, so it was odd that she was a brand manager. The job title was misleading. The job was actually developing campaigns for new customers to Capital One 360. I asked the hiring manager if people who were signing up for Capital One 360 already had an existing relationship with the bank. She said " I have absolutely no idea what that means, relationship with the bank?" Then she started laughing at me.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Washington, DC (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First round interviews were conducted on-campus. Those consisted of two case interviews, no behavioral questions whatsoever. They were qualitative and quantitative cases but not astoundingly difficult. I was flown on-site (DC) for a final round interview about 2 weeks later. This interview consisted of 3 case interviews and 1 behavioral interview. The cases were quantitative but, again, not extremely difficult. One required analyzing graphs for 30 min and presenting findings/answering questions in case format. The behavioral was standard.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Wasn't like any other i've seen on here. Thought it was just supposed to be a Phone screen with the Hiring Manager. But turned out to be two Senior devs.

    They had pretty thick accents and their speaker phone kept have interference; making it hard to hear them.

    Was quick introduction then into like 50 straight technical questions. No high level, conceptual ,leetcode programming problems or DS and Algorithms. Everything was extremely specific even about technologies/languages even some not on my resume.

    Only feedback i got was ok, then next dev fired off another question.
