    Commercial Real Estate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The process was pretty smooth and straightforward. I applied online and a couple of weeks later I was contacted by an in-house recruiter who set up a screening call. The recruiter asked me about my past related experience and explained the interview process. About one week after that I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview with the team. I went in person to the office for a super day of interviews with several team members. I was asked a variety of behavioral and technical questions since I'm an experienced hire. The following week HR called to schedule the last round of interviews. I spoke with a few more members of the team. One day after that I was extended an offer. The timeframe from when I applied to the time I got the offer was about a month and a half.

    Commercial Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capital One (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    This was the most bizarre and drawn out process I have experienced. Several phone interviews. Little to no communication on when next interview was coming. Finally went into a “power day”, which is a panel interview set-up. Direct Manager seemed nice. Her boss (Director) was arrogant, and asked me the same question repeatedly. It was clear they were trying to get down to a specific answer, but my philosophy was different from theirs. She said, “well let’s move on from that question so that you don’t start making up an answer”. As an established professional, it turned me off, and I felt it was highly insulting. In the end, they wanted me to come back for another interview, I declined.

    Also, money out of pocket spent on parking, food, etc while overnight for the interview took over a month to be reimbursed.

    Contract Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I went through a series of 5 interviews on 4 different occasions. The first 4 interviews went well and each time I was 'cleared' to move on to the next interview. The final interview was with one of the executives who gave an awkward interview and kept me there for two hours. About 2-weeks later, Capital One turned me down for the position, and the whole process ended up being a huge waste of time and inconvenience. The way the company's representatives led me through such a lengthy interviewing process was very unprofessional. There's no reason they couldn't have made a decision earlier in the process and saved everyone a lot of time and effort.

    Corporate Strategy Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capital One (New York, NY (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and was reached out to by recruiter. I screened with the recruiter (standard questions). I then had a case with a manager which I passed (barely - IMO I should not have been moved to the next round).

    I then interviewed in the office. My third case was canceled due the interviewer having a surprise meeting. I then interviewed again a week later with a third caser. I received feedback a few days later.

    All in all - Capital One is constantly interviewing - the process was rushed and had a very assembly line feel to it (yeah its a bank)...but not once was I asked "why capital one", "why leave your previous role."

    My travel was not reimbursed, I showed up to a hotel and had to put 500 plus bucks on my credit card. I was only sent the reimbursement form a week later (still haven't received it). My train was booked incorrectly and I had to pay extra for that as well (I hope they reimburse it).

    All in all I would say -- be careful about applying to Capital One - its an interview shop, theyll interview for the sake of interviewing. Other people I interviewed with had similar things to say.

    An interview committee of three members of upper management interviewed me.

As of today, (August 3, 2016), I am waiting to hear if I got the job or not. I left the interview feeling very hopeful.

    Outbound Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Capital One (Richmond, VA (US)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Job fair at Capital One site. Multi interviews regarding different aspects. Computer tests and one on one review of experience. Well planned. Interview review of resume, then computer testing (2 hrs) Phone interview was further screening...offer job next day. But not clear on job duties while at the fair.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Very basic questions that are rather reviews about your resume. The roll play was much easier to pass than other industries. I overwhelmed them, but I was over qualified. Bad for me as the position was frustrating because of that...for me.   1 Answer

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Capital One (Plano, TX (US)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview via email with agency for Capital One. I was able to provide my documentation and application online and complete any questions online. I interviewed with the Capital One person who was authorized to approve my hire. As a Contractor, I can only communicate with the agency representative for Capital One. It was easy to communicate with the contracting agency about the job but I found it also easy to inform them of any trends at Capital One so they will be better informed of the working environment and attitude of the company and be able to meet or offer services to meet those needs.

    Negotiation

    Simple. Employment is better than no employment during the current Deep Recession.

    Interview

    It was simply a phone interview with a Director and Manager. FT employees can't meet contractors in person. They both seemed very busy and were just going through the motions because they needed someone there as quickly as possible
