Great summer experience
Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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

4.8 of 5 stars

Emailing IT employees for data
Plano, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The project was not too difficult. Also, we had a number of intern activities each week. I learned Visual Basic and SQL.


Downers

I felt the project ignored my degree and education. I had to beg for another assignment that actually involved programming, which i how I leaned Visual Basic and SQL.


Advice to Potential Interns

They should not take too much pride in their engineering education and be happy with their generous salary.

I accepted the internship because I thought it was too good to be true, turns out it was even better than my high expectations!!!!
Richmond, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

We had an overnight weekend retreat to the Omni Homestead Resort, frequently interacted with the most senior executives of the company, spent a weekend in DC just to have fun and were empowered to take full ownership of our assignments.


Downers

The amount of 'fun stuff' for interns actually became overwhelming at times and make getting work done difficult. It felt like you were pledging for a fraternity, just a lot more fun.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't give in to preconceived notions, stereotypes or the expectations of others. Come in for an interview and work hard to make it to the on site final round interview. If you aren't sold by that point then this isn't the place for you.


Sample Interview Questions

Look to the company's website for sample behavioral interview questions. The questions I was asked in my interview came from that list. Don't be afraid to ask your recruiter for advice, they want you to be successful. The key to the case interviews is to think out loud 100%. It doesn't matter wether you or right or wrong, just the fact that you are able to think and communicate your thoughts.


Advice to Management

Capital One is great for being such a progressive corporate culture. Don't change a thing as the company continues to grow and continue to take care of the high performers.
