I interviewed with COF twice. First time was with strategy group and was the hardest interviews I have done anywhere. Second time was with the quant group and wasn’t as hard but more mathematical.

Go ahead

The cases aren't bad at C1 for BA roles. Look on YouTube for the C1 case there, that's pretty much what you can expect. I can't speak to any of the quant roles (I've interviewed for product, BA, and AD roles at HQ in the past 6 months).

They do give you a calculator, which helps with the math.

Thanks!!!

Am at Capital One: cases are definitely more quant based, more guided. I find them to be easier than typical consulting cases
