    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!

    I applied through college or university – 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 Questions
    • 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

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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
