Capital One Interview Policy

Before being invited for a sit-down interview, the company will generally require you to pass a screening process with an HR representative. This will come in the form of either a phone and video conference call and will include a basic question relating to your work history, availability, salary expectations, and a few broad questions about your skill-sets.

Once you pass the HR screening and are shortlisted for the position, you will be contacted for a sit-down interview. Depending on the nature of the position and its seniority you may face either a one on one or panel interview. The interviews will be a mix of HR reps and managers from relevant departments.

Aside from preparing you to pass the exams, our PrepPack also makes sure you are fully capable of handling any tough interview question they may throw your way.  

The logic behind Capital One’s Verbal, Numerical, and personality  Assessments.

Verbal – No, we are not just talking about how well you can communicate with your co-workers (although that is helpful as well.) Verbal reasoning tests give your future employer insight into how you use verbal logic and understand and make use of complex written information.  

Numerical – Working with Decimals, fractions, and percentages and being able to easily subtract, divide, or multiply are important hard skills that Capital One wants to ensure that you have to a tee. These skills are important for working with facts, figures, and tables.

Personality -  The personality test is important to ensure that you not only get along with co-workers and create a cohesive environment but that you have the motivation and attitude needed for the job. A great tip for answering these questions is to use the STAR format. These means setting up your answer by explaining:

  1. The circumstances in which you had to solve an issue (Situation.)
  2. The division of opinions regarding a specific task (Divisions.)
  3. Explain the various courses of action to solve the debate and how you came to a resolution (Actions.)  
  4. Describe your successful resolution was as you thought it would be. (Result)
