    Interview Details

    Initial interview was weak, more like phone screen to check my communication skills, did not ask any challenging questions. Asked basic questions related to where I see myself in CAPCO, how much I knew about the company. Also gave a brief background on CAPCO, their focus, and the kinds of opportunities they have open

    ATP Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capco.

    Interview Details

    The overall process of the interview was not too difficult. You first get a phone interview and once they like you they call you up for a second interview. For the 2nd interview you talk to two people. Mainly talking about yourself and your experience. Make sure you are able to answer obscure questions. There is no right answer but i believe they are looking for how you came up with that answer.

    First there was an online interview. Easy questions about your skills and about the role of a consultant. That was followed by an assessment centre. It contained a written test, a group case and mini interviews. The day was very well organised and laid back.

    Associate Talent Program (ATP) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capco in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application - resume and cover letter.
    Round 1 interview with HR Analyst: had to reschedule couple of times because of changing schedules on both our ends, but were finally able to talk about a week after she first reached out to me for an interview. It was originally supposed to last 15-30 minutes but we went to almost 45 minutes. Talked about my background ("walk me through your resume") and my interest in finance, the program and Capco. Interviewer was very friendly, very personable, and was happy with my answers. Moved on to the second round (in person, 2 1-on-1 interviews with current consultants) - got asked behavioral questions mostly, resume walk through, and a brain teaser or two. They were happy, got asked back for 3rd round (Assessment Day) to take place in 2-2.5 weeks. About 20-25 other candidates, grouped into a few teams, fed breakfast and lunch with a case study, inbox challenge and rapid fire questions. Then lunch, Q&A with partners and associates and end of the day. Got an offer following week, early. Everyone at the company is very warm and welcoming, great to talk to casually or professionally. Candidates interacted a lot with partners who remembered our names and whatever tidbits about ourselves we told them it just felt way more welcoming and like "we want you" than any other company I've worked/interacted with. The flat hierarchy/open door policy idea they have is very tangible. Everyone's chugging the company Kool-Aid but in the least creepy/cult-y way possible.

    Interview Questions
    • Whole rapid fire section had the most strongly mixed feelings - questions ranged from company specific to brain teasers to just random questions. Definitely felt the most stressed during that time but everyone enjoyed it (I didn't as much).   Answer Question

    Principal Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capco in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called me the first week in October...had me convinced to come interview by the end of the week despite my reluctance. Am very happy indeed that I did!

    Met with four managers in a two hour time period, had a tour of the office, met my recruiter. I had one follow up phone interview-- this was in the span of 4 business days. By the end of the 2nd week in October I had a verbal offer, which I happily accepted, then a written one hours later.

    Interview experience was very different than a typical Big 4- it was interactive, I met the right people on round 1-- a partner, two senior managers, and someone at my level that could answer candidly and give insight into a "day in the life". Recruiter was transparent and diligent throughout the process and all managers seemed to have a genuine interest in my career goals and how they translate to Capco opportunities. Followed up even after offer acceptance to help with the onboarding process and took me to lunch the first week I joined. I have since recommended Capco to three ex- colleagues from my firm.
