    Sr. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tysons, VA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Tysons, VA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Interview started with a management and technical phone screen. Once past that, I was invited on-site for a day of hour-long interviews. Two job fit, one technical, two behavioral. The process was lengthy, but not onerous. CapitalOne went out of their way to prepare me for the interviews, providing documents describing what to expect. The entire process turned out to be as pleasant as a job interview can possibly be, I believe.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Very lengthy process. 7 in total. 1. Phone Screen (case+behavioral) 2. Power Day on site (two case + behavior, one product interview) 3. Interview with VP (case + behavior) 4. Interview / Chat with hiring manager.

    Overall it's not too hard just a lot of people you gotta talk to.. The one with VP definitely felt harder. In the end when chatting with Hiring Manager it's a bit unexpected cause I thought we'd just be chatting, but they actually asked me how I usually handle / query database, what current software I use and how do I solve problems. So it doesn't quite make sense to me, if technical capability is important too then why leave that to the last. If they want to know if someone can build stats model / query data, wouldn't it be better to start with that instead of business cases?

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    overall negative experience. 45 mins case interview, interviewer walked me in without any small talk and did not even let me introduce myself. 'for the interests of time, we will jump into the case now' which is fine for me. Then he is barely engaged and on his phone multiple times while I was doing the calculation on the paper and looked up to seek interaction. He gave very perfunctory responses whenever I finished my answers. I finished the case 10 mins in advance and was supposed to have extra time to ask him questions, but instead, he stood up very suddenly and busy to take my draft paper away. He said that I can ask questions to the recruiter who is sitting next door while at the same time walking me out directly without letting me stop by the recruiter's room. Overall, the interviewer acted as impatient and unengaged.
