Great summer experience
Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I loved the people I worked with (on my team)


Downers

I had a hard time when my manager demanded a significant amount more of me than other interns for the last few weeks. I, of course, didn't mind the work and enjoyed working hard but felt as though I missed out on some intern events because of it.


Advice to Potential Interns

People are incredibly willing to help you and answer any questions you may have; you can tell it is a great place to work because everyone there seems very happy.


Sample Interview Questions

3 Case studies and one behavioral interview

The autonomy and white space of my projects


Downers

A lack of pressure and not enough opportunities to work with other interns.


Advice to Potential Interns

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

Yes

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.

...
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

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

Best job experience I have had to date
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.

Yes

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

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
