The TDP program organized lots of social events that I really enjoyed. It made me feel apart of something and not just some intern.

Downers

It's only 10 weeks long! The summer went by so quickly.

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to ask questions. My team was super helpful so it wasn't as big a deal for me but other interns struggled with their projects and didn't ask their team for help.

Sample Interview Questions

One of the technical questions was to implement a queue using stacks

The case interview was more of a business question regarding security. Protecting customer data and such.

Would You Recommend

Downers

It felt a little short, but time flies

Advice to Potential Interns

Be passionate about technology and bring your whole self to work.

Advice to Management

Make sure you train managers on what interns need to do during the summer. My manager was great, but I heard others had managers who weren't as good.

Culture, lots of fun events, a lot of freedom

Downers

Takes a long time to get required permissions

Advice to Potential Interns

It really is as good as it seems

Advice to Management

Figuring out a way to get interns required permissions faster

Sample Interview Questions

Talk about a time when you explained a technical concept to someone with no technical knowledge.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Capital One, a place where to work because you want to, not because you have to.

4.8 of 5 stars

Plano, TX | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The way they break up the process with opportunities to learn and grow in various ways.

Downers

No hardware. I understand that banking is their product but I would have enjoyed an opportunity to explore some of their hardware offerings even if it was just through 3rd party vendors

Advice to Potential Interns

There will be some traveling involved for anyone outside of Virginia, to Virginia. They are catering to the college student pretty hard so if you find yourself outside the norm you may want to make arrangements. As a 26 year old college student with a wife, I had to plan to drive home every weekend and be more aware of my free time than I originally intended.

Advice to Management

Increase the stipend for living so interns with spouses can afford to live and make money while working over the summer. Another $2000 would have done the trick. Internships are 100% more enjoyable when you tackle them with the people you love by your side. Alternatively, they are 100% harder when you are away from those same people for such extended periods of time.

Sample Interview Questions

Design a program to verify the syntax of the JSON string.
Tell me what each argument does in this encryption method declaration.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Working on a beautiful campus. Meeting lots of great people. Contributing meaningful work to our team.

Downers

The housing provided by National Corporate Housing was very disappointing. Instead of giving them my stipend, I could have kept it and found much better housing. Capital One should find a new service to handle housing.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I had known how easy it was to reach out to people on other teams at Capital One (for purposing of integrating their software tools with ours, etc.). Everyone is very open to conversation.

Advice to Management

Make the interview questions a little more difficult.

Sample Interview Questions

What is the best way to encrypt files added to this folder under these constraints?
Write code to find the sum of the nodes of a binary tree, all of which contain numbers.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Develop software and yourself through writing code, making friends, and experiencing life as a tech associate at Capital One.

Uppers

- Multitude of opportunities to meet with other interns and make friends
- Strong and positive relationship with manager
- Challenging project and lots of autonomy
- Laid back corporate culture
- Competitive pay
- Connections made with team members

Downers

I would have preferred a longer internship - our ten weeks (more like 9 weeks once you take orientation into account) went by so fast! A twelve week internship would have been great.

Advice to Potential Interns

Although Capital One does appear to primarily be a banking/credit card company, the software projects they have go way beyond the scope of just banking and credit cards. All forms of software engineering teams and projects can be found at the company, including the popular areas like mobile, machine learning, and more. I wish I'd known this when I was submitting my preferences for the type of work I wanted to do. Your work isn't limited to just banking-related things.

Advice to Management

There's very little I can think of at the moment.

Sample Interview Questions

- Reverse an array (there were more coding/technical questions than just this but I can't remember them)
- How would you store potentially sensitive customer data?
- How would you explain a technical or in-depth concept to someone non-technical or unfamiliar with the concept?

Would You Recommend

Yes
