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.

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

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

The attention that I got from my manager and other executives was great. I often got more attention than other full time employees

The projects are very defined and there is little room to be creative.

Capital One treats its employees great, which its employees realize and appreciate. The work-life balance at Capital One is very hard to beat.

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
