If you want to have fun and gain valuable knowledge to further your career, this is the place for you.
Richmond, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with so many people across multiple departments; the attitude that everyone had towards their jobs; working on projects that will actually be used by the company in the future; mostly everything else was amazing.


Downers

I personally didn't get to work close with the team where my office space was, and would have liked to interact with them more.


Advice to Potential Interns

Honestly, this place was amazing. Everything about the company was fantastic; everything from the office spaces to the common areas to the employees, everything made me feel at home. I never felt like I worked a day because it was such an enjoyable experience.

5.0 of 5 stars

A summer-long project containing autonomy, fun times, hard work, and nice paychecks
Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Autonomy, laid-back and fun culture, work-life balance


Downers

Numerous meetings and external assignments, training can be ineffective


Advice to Potential Interns

Capital One cares about its employees and you will definitely see how they spend money for your benefit. In return, they have high expectations from you, but knowing you are a college student, they mostly expect you to learn as much as you can early on and show how you have learned and grown by the end of the internship. At the end of the day, the offer comes if you fit well in the culture in addition to doing a good job on your project.


Sample Interview Questions

They use lots of case questions, but the recruiters do a good job giving you the right information to prepare for them.


Advice to Management

There are many meetings and assignments that can often require employees to work longer hours to get their job done. Find a way to get a certain message across to all employees more effectively and hold meetings only where no good alternative exists.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Capital One Grants Interns Open-Reign in their own Summer Development
Richmond, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect was the freedom and responsibility given to each intern. We had the ability to run with any idea that we had and were really set up for growth. We were also given amazing networking opportunities to talk to people very high up


Downers

Geographically, interns are very spread out yet included in the same programming. So some people had to drive and were not compensated for this while others (in SF for example) had to wake up for 8 am meetings when they were 11 am meetings to others


Advice to Potential Interns

They are great and offer you so many opportunities to grow professionally and personally. I developed in so many more ways than I thought I would.


Sample Interview Questions

A lot of break even analysis (case)

job fit and behavioral (tell a time when you resolved an issue, when you worked on two projects at once, etc)


Advice to Management

promotion policies - interns were given a poor perspective of the promotion policies and made us all a little weary


Would You Recommend

Yes

...
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Relaxed culture, great people, interesting work


Downers

Not as intense as other companies -- you can choose to work harder but it's not pushed by anyone.


Advice to Potential Interns

Likely one of the best analyst internships out there for someone also interested in consulting


Would You Recommend

Yes
