Finance Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details

Campus Recruiting: Two 45-minute interviews back-to-back, 7 questions in each interview for 14 total questions. Some of the questions are repetitive, but they want to see if you improve your answer the second time. I talked to two employees that work in finance, not recruiters. They called me the next day to let me know I had an offer.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time you had to influence your superiors.
    Tell me about a time you had a difficult group member.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Only got through 1st round -
    1st round was a campus interview
    2 - 30 minute interviews -- the second one ran super long (50 minutes)
    Interviews were very technical -- very few behavioral questions and basically zero questions relating to your interest in Intel or the industry or why you are even sitting in the interview!
    One interview was about finance and even some supply chain technical questions straight off a piece of paper.
    The second interview was a business case that used some off the concepts talked about in the previous interview.

    Interview Questions
    • If you had to convince your manager to make an investment of $1 M and there is no room in the budget - how would you do so?
      Who would you approach with a new idea? A manager, an colleague?
      How do you decide whether a project is worth it?
      What is the WACC? When does a company use this?
      How do you calculate the cost of equity?
      Would you capitalize an investment as an expense or treat it as an asset?
      What is the difference between the 3 financial statements? Please go through each of them and talk me through how they are connected.
      What is the competitive landscape of Intel?
      If I make an investment of say $ 1 M, walk me through how this affects all the statements.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews. They were both technical and I thought I didn't get through after the first one b/c the questions were so hard but surprisingly, I got a second interview and then flown out to their Folsom, CA location for a day of multiple interviews. I did not get an offer.

    The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a call for HR that they were interested. Had two initial screening interviews that lasted an average of about 45 mins each. Interviews were pretty comfortable with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. Received a callback the same day saying I was recommended for additional interviewing. Was flown out to a campus a couple weeks later.

    There was an informal networking event over dinner the day before the interview, and I was able to speak with some employees (all of whom were nice and seemed to like Intel). You also get a presentation from some finance people before the dinner.

    On the interview day, they split the candidates into different rooms and have three different interviewers rotate into the rooms for 45 minute interviews with breaks in between. These interviews are also a mix of technical/case and behavioral, with some interviewers leaning more heavily on one aspect than others.

    About a week and a half after the interview I received an offer.

    Specific advice: Tailor your technical/case answers in a way that demonstrates you know Intel's financial and market position. If you don't they'll ask you to.

    Finance Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview with 2 employees, 1 HR and 1 Finance. There was a mix of behavioral questions, mini cases to solve, and an overview of the background. Interviewers asked for detailed examples and were a little pushy in that sense. Two 1 hour interviews, a little bit longer than necessary, in my opinion.
    Overall, nice people, but tough questions!.
