Pros: Corporate discounts, perks, fun environment, excellent pay, opportunity for advancement, education
Cons: Not all positions are available at every Capital One location.
Days at Capital One are very busy and fast paced. Assistants usually support between 4 and 5 managers at time. A typical day consists of calendar management, drafting emails and responding to reqests for time. Along with drafting and sending new meeting invites, at times I also have to coordinate and plan different events, seminars, and conferences.
I learned adaptability at Capital One. I started at Capital One in 2007 in the Retention department which was by far the most challenging job that I was ever asked to do. I had to adapt to a call center environment, an undesireable schedule, and an ever changing culture. The motto within Capital One is, "change is constant" so with that Mantra I've had to deal with various seat changes, department changes, management changes, and also focus changes. With each change you have to just adapt to it and keep moving.
I've found that management with the company are always willing to help. They are willing to help you grow in your career and will lead you in the right direction if what you want to do isn't what you're currently doing.
My coworkers were always hardworking and were from all walks of life. Capital One does a great job of hiring a great group of diverse individuals that come from various work and cultural backgrouds.
The hardest part of my job was at times dealing with the constant change. It was at times hard to keep up with the new policies and changes that were in place at an given time.
Capital One's fun culture is the most enjoyable part of working for the company. We constantly have events, fun team outings, and Capital One also sponsors events that the employees get to attend for free. Capital One does a great job of creating an exciting and fun work enviroment for all to enjoy.
