    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Intel Corporation in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I participated in the candidate rush at the Chandler, AZ site. My travel and lodging were payed for. I was very happy with the overall process. The first day was an overview of the rotational program and Intel. The second day we attended a presentation concerning the benefits of working at Intel. We were given three separate interviews. All interviews were behavioral in nature. Each interview had a technical component which was relatively basic. My advice would be make sure you have some strong examples of experiences to draw upon (work, school, etc.). Make sure you are aware of basic functions of company by reviewing 10K or Q. Have a strong working knowledge of corporate finance and the current regulatory environment.

    Interview Questions
