    In total there was 1 HR interviews, 2 Principal Consultants interview, 1 case study and 1 interview with a partner. Questions varied from why Capco to describe yourself in 5 words.

    Interview

    Waste of time. The interviewer didn't pay attention from the first word we spoke and interview was over within 15 minutes. He asked me to go over the resume, asked some fit & behavioral questions. Discussing strengths & weaknesses. Complete waste of mine and their time, demonstrates the company culture?

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    At the first round of interview, I was introduced to a HR, the HR is a very nice lady who makes you feel so comfortable and clam. I talked so freely which I actually received a phone call after a few days for a second round interview.
    I wish the second round interview can be conducted very smoothly since I really want this job.

    Interview Questions

    • Basically behavioural question, like why do you want to work at capco, and talk about your internship experiences, your current job nature and responsibility! Nothing to specific!   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening. 3 round interview process: HR, Staffing, Business each lasting approximately 45 minutes. The final staffing session contained a project initiation.

    Response time and communication was poor and this impression, of a lack of organisation coupled with other poor reviews, contributed to my rejection of their offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Capco (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    1st round: Application form with questions such as ' How do you see the future of financial services progressing'
    2nd round: Numerical, verbal, personality tests online
    3rd round: 3 Question via Video Interview: Describe a time a miss communication caused a problem in your work and how did you resolve it? What are the opportunities for FS going forward? Can't remember the last Question.
    4th Round: Assessment Day at Capco office,s 20 or so people, were told they would pick circa 5/6 for the job. The day involved 3 parts: Written tests, verbal and numerical reasoning. Q & A with two consultants, really helpful to be able to find more out about the company. Quick fire interviews with 3 consultants: Questions about your back round, 'tell me about yourself', 'why consultancy' 'why Capco' ' Where's your favourite place you've lived' 'What do you like to do outside work'
    Final round: 3 interviews- 1 HR, included competency based questions and CV questions. 1 with a Senior Consultant- Asked about me and my experience, why Capco, why consulting, why finance when this isn't my back ground etc. Then a 3rd interview with a partner, similar questions, more of a conversation about my interest in F.S, testing my knowledge of it but not directly, pretty general questions to get to know you.
    1 week later they rang me and offered me the job.

    Interview

    Initial interview was weak, more like phone screen to check my communication skills, did not ask any challenging questions. Asked basic questions related to where I see myself in CAPCO, how much I knew about the company. Also gave a brief background on CAPCO, their focus, and the kinds of opportunities they have open
