    Difficult Interview

    Interview process can be lengthy. Interviews are held with multiple parties on the same day in a one-on-one and panel format so coordinating schedules can be a challenge. Be prepared for lengthy situational questions. Tell me about a time...

    Associate Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    Went through my school to find and apply for the job. First had an on-campus interview (since they were specifically looking for fresh out-of-college grads), which was just a casual conversation talking about my portfolio. Had a great time.

    Then went through the next round, which Capital One flew me over to DC to interview at HQ. Met with some of the other designers, who were all very nice, but were low key saying some negative things about the company. Definitely affected my perspective on the company in a negative way.

    Designers have a design challenge, which you're only given 45 minutes to work on.

    Associate Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (Washington, DC (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Professional and streamlined. Had a good call with the recruiter, she had me fly into DC for another round of interviews and a design challenge. Everyone was pretty friendly, my only criticism was the design challenge was a little unstructured. All the other people applying for the position were there which was a little strange.

    Audit Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online around the time of my college business fair. I was chosen as an alternate for an interview the following week. The first interview was on campus and it was a behavioral interview. I would suggest knowing S.T.A.R. for every question. My interviewer was very conversational and made me feel very comfortable. After the weekend, I received an email for 2nd round interviews in Richmond. This consisted of 3 interviews; case study, behavioral, and job fit. All three were very conversational, just make sure you know what Capital One is and how it best fits you. I received an offer the following Monday and accepted a couple weeks later. I had the choice of relocating to Richmond or to be in the McLean office.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.
      What's something on your resume that you really want to emphasize?
      Name a time you came up with something innovative and put it into action.
      Name a time you had difficulty with a project and how you handled it.   Answer Question

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)).

    Interview

    Very friendly. I went to the superday interview and each interviewer asked me around 3 easy behavioral questions. The rest of the interview was just having a conversation. It was very conversational. and they kept telling me that they didn't want it to be a stressful interview. They're basically trying to get to know your personality and if you would fit in with the company.

    It was 2 company fit interviews and 1 behavioral interview.
