    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capital One.

    Interview Details

    I applied when they came for recruitment at my college.
    First round was a written test that was completely on Data Interpretation. 30 questions in 30 mins and all the questions were based on the same data set and the difficulty level was medium to high.
    Next was a case study round, wherein I was asked to come up with ideas to run a taxi business and later scale it up. A numerical problem to find break even point also followed.
    In the next case study (in-depth), case was on rural lending business. There was another case study round where he explained the insurance business model and I had to increase the profits. I was asked to create charts (revenue vs death probability,application acceptance rate) and then questions were asked from charts that the interviewer made.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Capital One in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. Technical test (30 questions in 35 minutes) : Graphs were provided and all the questions were based on the graphs using basic concepts of economics like Profit, interest, shares, dividends, inflation etc.

    2. 3 Case Interviews: Each of half an hour. The first one was relatively simple. Second was the most rigorous one. The video posted on official Capital One Youtube channel regarding how to prepare for Case Interviews will help a lot. Questions were pretty general. At first we needed to identify the proper factors affecting the case in question. Then some quantitative and a few qualitative analysis questions followed.

    Interview Questions
    • The Technical Test required lot of speed. I could attempt 27/30 and that was very much on the higher side. 20 was above average. So speed helps. For those with little lesser marks, Resume was used to shortlist.

      Non Technical Questions: I was asked why i wanted to join Capital One. Thats it!
