I have been working at Capital One full-time
Pay, culture is great, benefits
Lack of interesting and meaningful projects
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (McLean, VA (US)).
*I just finished my first round, and I'm still in the process.*
I was contacted by a hiring manager via LinkedIn, and had a phone conversation with her for about 15 minutes. She then passed me along to some of the people she leads, so I could get better insight on the role. They were all pretty nice and welcoming.
Once I was ready to move forward in the process, I texted the hiring manager, and she passed me along to the recruitment team. I had scheduled my first case interview that week.
The first round is a case, and mine was pretty straightforward - probably the same difficulty level as the practice mini case my recruiter provided. If I pass this first round, I'll have another case interview, then a product interview.
First round case background:
Your client is an energy company called EnergyOne. Historically, they've produced energy through the burning of fossil fuels - specifically natural gas, but they're considering using a combination of renewables. The company has been backed by a group of small investors.
The current plant produces 8.8mil MWh (but that's under the assumption that the factory is working at 100% capacity 24/7/365). Costs include $5M/mo to lease land, and a fixed cost of $25M/yr (includes upkeep, salaries, etc). It costs $20 to produce a Mwh, and the company's selling price per Mwh is $40. The group of investors have contributed $400M to the company's success and expect a 10% return on investment.
