Very Easy Interview

Senior Data Analyst Interview

Senior Data Analyst

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Capital One in March 2013.

Interview Details I saw very interesting position description which matched with my skill set and career ambition. I applied on their website. Their job application site is very well designed and the initial follow up was impressive. In 2-3 days I heard back from the recruiter that they would like to conduct the first interview. I was happy and started preparing for the interviews. On the day of the interview, after a few very easy questions about mathematics, eligibility for employment question came up. I work on H1B visa in the related industry. I also have EAD card through GC application, so I can work for any employer in USA using any of these two work authorizations. The recruiter was very ill prepared to hear this and kept on insisting that I should only have H1B visa to work. At the end of 30 minutes, he said he will check with his manager and come back.

I followed up after a few days, but never saw a reply from him. I feel sad that I lost an amazing opportunity because of an uneducated recruiter.

I do not believe that Capital One discriminate in recruitment process but I know this recruiter definitely discriminated against me.

Interview Question – What is your work authorization? I do not think that you can work using EAD card. :( :(   Answer Question

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

Interview Details I had a senior working at Capital One and so had a rough idea about the work there. Also I did attend Capital One’s pre-placement talk.

Make sure you do attend the pre placement talk. That way you will get to know about the company and the kind of work you would be expected to do if you do get selected.

Interview Question – This case focused on the break even analysis of a telecom company. The data given was the cost to company for a call (on a per minute basis), fixed price paid by the customer for the first 10 minutes and the price paid per minute of usage thereafter.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Analyst Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Capital One.

Interview Details It was campus recruitment.

Written Round(1 hour) : Section 1 - 40 q's all on data interpretation mcq's mainly to check speed and accuracy. Section 2 - 10 q's on aptitude mainly. most were subjective and puzzles.

Interview:
ROUND 1 : Small case study. For most people it ran for only 10-15min. Mine went for 40 min and had 2 case studies. They were not very difficult. They will give most data, some u might need to ask. You need to back every answer with calculations.

ROUND 2 : It was aptitude round involving puzzles. As I was CS student I was asked to code each puzzle. All puzzles were logical and needed some thinking.

ROUND 3 : Behavioral questions(though for most this was round 4). What problems u faced in past and how did u tackle them

ROUND 4 : Case Study. This time they only gave the problem(without data) and I had to analyze it inside out. Some data was given as I asked.

After 10-15 mins I was handed over the offer letter
