    the first round was on-campus. Second round, I flew out to Richmond Virginia. There were three interviews in total : 2 behavioral, 1 case. One behavioral interview consists of all scenario questions. While the other one consists of both scenario questions and fit questions. The interviewers were nice, but slightly intimidating. (They constantly took notes during interviews, which might be slightly awkward)

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I got an interview at Capital One through my University's career center. I had a first found interview in late February 2011. The interview took place on campus and was relatively conversational in tone. The interview consisted of several behavioral questions and requests for additional details regarding sections of my resume. Following the interview I was contacted via email and was required to take an IQ test that had both a verbal and mathematical component; both relatively easy. I was offered a final round interview which I have not yet completed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Applied to the position through my university and realized at a reception prior to on-campus interviews how competitive the process was. On-campus interview was great. It was a behavioral interview and I connected with the interviewer; it was fairly casual and felt more like a conversation. Nothing unexpected. Found out five days later that I was selected for an on-site interview, which they call "power days". I could have interviewed as early as the following week but, due to my scheduling issues, I had to postpone by almost a month. Before on-site, however, I had to complete an arduous testing process that took four hours. On-site interview consisted of two more behavioral interviews and a case interview. Behavioral interviews were fine, each consisted of three long-ish questions with plenty of back and forth and question time. One of the interviewers was a tad unprofessional but not a big deal. Case was fairly straight forward with plenty of back and forth as well. Entire process was very professional and provided a clear view into their corporate culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral questions-- describe a group situation during which time you were a manager and you had such and such problem, describe a situation during which you were a team-member and had to step up to the plate, what accomplishments are you most proud of, etc.   Answer Question
    • Case interview-- based on credit card portfolios. Required simple arithmetic and strong logical/ problem solving skills.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    First was HR screening for about 20-30 minutes, then was asked to do online assessments for Work Style, Comprehension and Numerical reasoning. Passed all of them, still have to schedule an onsite interview. Hopefully all goes well. In my opinion, numerical test had very short duration, I couldn't answer all the answers.
