Best internship experience ever

Combining College Computer Science Experience with the Business World

4.8 of 5 stars

McLean, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I got an opportunity to learn about how banks and financials worked. I also learned how a major company operates and the day to day happenings. I also had the ability to shadow anyone and everyone was very helpful at the company.

Downers

The learning curve was very high for my specific role. I also don't think the majority of people in a software role would enjoy the role I was in. Some meetings also were too long.

Advice to Potential Interns

Great place to learn and work. Requires an effort on the part of an incoming hire though to grow in certain roles.

Sample Interview Questions

A time when a teammate didn't do work

What is a garbage collector?

How does a buffer overflow attack work?

Difference between an array and a list?

How to integrate new software?

Advice to Management

I think more trainings would be beneficial. Also, meetings can be more to the point and involve only those necessary.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Reach out to people around the office if you are ever struggling with any assignment. They are more than willing to help you!

Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

The internship has great intern events, people, pay, and not long hours.

I felt the internship project did not apply engineering enough.

Don't expect to use your engineering education.

Everything was fine.

Fun and Exciting Internship Experience that Provides for Personal and Professional Growth

5.0 of 5 stars

New Orleans, LA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

My mentors and superiors were great to work with! Also, everyone remained fun while still staying professional. I really got the idea that it was a team oriented environment. I also loved that there are huge opportunities for growth as a person and professionally.

Downers

The work was sometimes tedious.

Advice to Potential Interns

I think that Capital One is a fun and innovative company that really has the customer in mind. That is something that sometimes gets overlooked when it comes to banking. I also would let any candidate know that Capital One has several opportunities for people who may not want to stay in their current position. There are several opportunities.

Sample Interview Questions

Explain a time where you took a leadership position.

Explain a time when you helped solve a problem.

Explain times when you have worked with a team in order to get something accomplished.

Advice to Management

I do believe that someone with graduate school experience should be a little higher compensated than those that do not.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best job experience I have had to date

5.0 of 5 stars

Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

They wanted me there and want to help me develop as a professional because they feel that I can become a useful asset to the company.

Downers

Finding housing for the summer in Plano was a bit of a pain.

Advice to Potential Interns

They care about you and your development.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Wonderful People, Interesting Work, Laid-Back Atmosphere, Good Food

5.0 of 5 stars

Richmond, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best part of the internship was the multiple opportunities Capital One provided to talk to senior executives or to hear them speak. Networking was quite easy in this way.

Downers

It took some time (about 5.5 weeks) before I could actually start working. This wouldn't have been a problem for a full time position, but since the internship was only 10 weeks it felt like a really significant amount of time to wait.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you don't think that the Agile work environment is for you, or perhaps you don't think you can ever get used to people talking around you while you work then this might not be the job for you. (Not everyone gets placed on an Agile team though, so don't let that deter you if you really want the job.)

Advice to Management

The only complaint I have is regarding the length of time it takes to obtain clearance to use software that you often need to do your job.

Would You Recommend

Yes
