    Interview

    Standard 2 behavioral and 2 case studies. One of the behavioral interviews consisted of a conversation (be sure to make it a conversation and ask questions) about what type of job/work you would enjoy best.

    Interview Questions

    • Many suggest the book "Case in Point", and those cases are certainly good. This is a heavily numbers-focused study, so be sure to brush up on financial accounting.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online then asked to have a phone interview (20mins), asking about current job and career goals, then asked to take an online test: Personality, Verbal and Math. Definitely not difficult, but requires fast thinking and calculation. After passing the online assessment, you will be asked to a on-site interview and that is where the real game begins...

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing is unexpected, but you need be well prepared in order to show what you got in the way they are expecting.   2 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (Wilmington, DE (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter for the analyst program who referred me to this position and another recruiter. Took a verbal and quantitative test and was invited to the Wilmington, DE Powerday. Did 2 case interviews and 2 behavioral interviews. There was an extreme language barrier with one of the interviewers who didn't even mention portions of the case study which she expected me to factor in. It is a very weird interview process in which you do not even necessarily meet people you will be working with or be tested on relevant skills.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview

    The interview can be broken in two categories... Case Interview and Behavioral Interview.

    Case interview primarily checks your ability to interpret the data for example if you will be able to see if the company making profit for loss, percentage , graphical representation of data. Simple maths but I would suggest you should revise the formula's for Profit/ Loss and Break Even Analysis,

    Behavioral Interview - that's easy, you have to talk about instances that may have come up in your career or you should be smart enough to make one and speak just like Extempore.

    Interview Questions

    • It really depends, for me it went straight forward so I was fine.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    After a brief HR talk and passing the written assessment exams (Analytical, Verbal and a behavioral), was called for a face to face interview (had a total of 5 rounds - 2 Behavioral and 3 Case interviews).
    Behavioral was fine (just "Did you ever face this issue and if so what you did" type of questions - total 6 questions (3 with each interviewer).
    Case Interviews - all 3 were very similar with minor changes and all were very math oriented.
    Prepare well for the case interviews by going over the book "Case in Point" - freely available to read online. Although it will not be the same, it will bring you to the mind set of how to approach these case interviews.
    And the entire F2F interview was not hard- but definitely grueling.

    Interview Questions

    • All 3 case interviews were about CC - was given credit limit, annual APR, avg monthly balance, processing fee, operational cost etc and was asked to find break even point and a bunch of other info.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining
