Vorstellungsgespräch

I applied online and received an email the next day from the recruiter for a quick call. When I didn't reply the same day, she emailed me in the evening asking if I was still interested in the position. I replied the next morning at 7 AM and before I was out the door to work we were on a call. Instead of asking me what times I was available, she went ahead and scheduled an interview for the next business day, on a Monday morning. She told me that the initial call would be a tech screen with the hiring manager, but I ended up interviewing with a regular data engineer. The tech screen itself was discussion about my background and questions related to my tech stack. Not a full day later I received an automatic rejection email.

While everyone involved in the process was friendly in communication, I have a suspicion I was used for HR to fill a quota. Aside from the rushed process, another red flag I should have noticed was the recruiter saying all applicants need to have X qualification (I said I didn't. Plus this wasn't in the job posting) yet scheduling me for an interview anyway.

    Overall interview process was very smooth. During final-round, there was a "Case", which was unexpected for a technical position. The preparation material provided was for a consulting-style case, but during the interview the case was nothing like it, and it ended up being a very confusing cybersecurity question. The interview process did not reflect the position very well.

    Interview included a set of standard algorithms questions you'd find anywhere else in the tech industry, a nice deep dive into a specific technical issue depending on your position (in my case, dealing with data engineering), behavioral section, and a case study section (deep dive into a general issue).

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2018 bei Capital One (Richmond, VA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was called by a recruiter at Capital One. A phone interview was arranged after that with the team leader. Two days later I was told that they would arrange an on-site interview (power day).
    The on-site interview had 4 separate 1-on-1 interviews, including 1 technical, 1 behavioral, and 2 job-fit interviews. I don't think they were difficult. However, during the conversation with interviewers, I realized that none of them actually work with/in the team to which I applied for the position. The manager of the team was not involved in the interview process. That makes me believe that their interview process might be inappropriate. I could tell that both interviewers (they are software engineers) from each job-fit interview sessions did not know I was interviewing for a data engineer position because they seemed a bit surprised until I mentioned it. Maybe they thought I applied for a software engineer position?
    What annoyed me is that I was told by the manager during the phone interview the business background was trivial for this position. And yet it seemed to be the reason they reject my application. One of the feedbacks said that they felt I am like a software engineer more than a data engineer. I think it's true because I am an experienced software engineer who is seeking a career change to be a data engineer. I don't know what's wrong about that.
    I received a rejection phone call from the recruiter two days later.
    By the way, although the whole on-site interview was very unusual, the recruiter was really awesome. She really knows her job very well.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied late at night a few weeks ago, and was woken up next morning by a very enthusiastic recruiter. I told her to call me back in 30 minutes as she had just woken me up, and I needed to think straight. She called me back promptly, and we spoke for about an hour. She explained the process and said that she'd be submitting my resume to some panel and one of the teams might select my resume to move ahead. Next day comes around, and the AML (Anti Money Laundering) team has selected my resume. We decide on availability and a date and time is set. 3 PM EST. And I'm in CA, so it's noon for me. Noon comes and goes and no call. I email them to find out that the Software Engineer got pulled into a meeting and would call me at 4 PM PST. I already had a bad feeling, but could do nothing, because I was going on vacation and wouldn't be back till next week. The risk of a 4 PM interview was obvious. It's the time when work is winding down and people wanna go home. Rather than postpone, since I was all prepped and ready, I said 4 PM is fine. An Indian guy calls, and without really asking about my resume, dives into the first (and only) technical question: If I have a table with columns a, b and c, how can I get the following counts: count of all a's where a is null, b's where b is null and so on for c, a and b, b and c, a and c and a, b and c, in a single scan of a table. I immediately think of the CASE statement. I mess it up a bit by not quite remembering that we can do a COUNT(CASE(... )), but I get there, and he's like, "No". I'm trying to think aloud and give him answers, but he said it wouldn't work, and just kept quiet. In fact, after telling him my solution, he was quiet for so long that I thought the line had gotten disconnected. He then asked me stuff about my resume, and what I'd done. But that question kept gnawing at me because I knew I was at least half-right, if not more, and I knew I was losing him, and so I said, "Can we go back to the question?". He said okay, and then I told him that we could do a COUNT(CASE()) and get his results. He still said nothing more than, "It won't work". Then he said, "Okay, what if there were many columns, and they kept changing. You wouldn't change your query right? How would you do this programmatically?". So I said, I would query the metadata to get the basic row count information, and the number of columns. Once you have the number of columns, you can form your query for each column and run that to get your counts. Silence. I said, "Uhm.. Hello?". He said, "It's okay. Do you have any questions for me?". By this time, I'd lost all interest in the interview myself, but asked him, "Sure! What does you team do?" Typically, this would involve telling the candidate what the team does at a high level and then drill down in the technicalities, if need be. He said, "We perform aggregations on Hive and we use Java and Python, but mostly Java." Not quite what I was expecting, but I was like, "Whatever". The call ended and so did my misery.

    I had very serious thoughts of emailing the recruiter and withdrawing from consideration. I wouldn't have wanted this kind of team/team mate. However, since I was going on vacation, I just waited instead for the rejection email to come. It duly arrived on Monday, and yesterday, the very friendly recruiter called me to give more feedback and after she was done, I unloaded on her and told her pretty much whatever I've typed here, and said that I don't think I'd want to apply to Capital One again given this experience. Once bitten, twice shy and all. She apologized for the negative experience and thanked me to bring it to her attention. Not sure if she'll actually tell the team, but I couldn't care less. I'm done with this company.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    A recruiter from Capital One contacted me. After the initial introduction call, I was sent a Hackerrank coding challenge. I completed the challenge and got a technical phone screen. It went bad for me. The interviewer was good and the questions were fairly straight forward. This was my first interview after a few years, so I was very nervous and though I knew the answers, I gave short few words answers. At the end of the interview realised that I didn't do well and I was sweating a lot.

    Both the recruiter and interviewer were very good and pleasant to work with. Over all a positive experience.

    Was flown out to Richmond for a power day that consisted of 3 hour long interviews. One interview was for Behavioral which was your generic interview to see if you fit within in the culture. The second is a case interview to test your analytical skills. The final interview is a tech interview depending on the position you are going for.
