Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in March 2008.

Interview

I went to the company for a seminar about their financial analyst program. It seemed very dreary and all the employees that spoke would introduce themselves followed by the amount of time they have left until their next sabbatical (vacation every 7 years). During the phone interview process, they ask extremely difficult questions followed by ones like "What does Intel Centrino mean to you?" I didn't get the job but found one with a better work environment, MUCH BETTER PAY, and awesome hours. I think I'm one of the lucky ones since Intel cut 1,000 jobs in Oregon alone.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2011.

    Interview

    Applied for the position through university and was offered a phone interview. I was emailed the interviewers name and position. I never received the call at the scheduled interview time. I followed up and another phone interview was scheduled. Every question asked was very technical in nature with none being behavioral. They seem to want a keyword for every question that they ask.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    I got an interview when I went to one of the career expositions which intel was present. I wasn't interviewed in an intel office so I don't know much about that. However, I did get the feeling that Intel is a very relaxed company. Once you get through to the interview stage, they want you to succeed. They were very friendly, and obviously had a lot of passion for the company. I think projecting passion for technology is a key thing that they look for. I went through two interviews back to back. Both were a mixture of technical and behavioral questions. For the technical questions you have to know basic finance. For the behavioral questions try and give a diverse range of examples. Keep it brief and try not to diverse away from the questions. On the bright side, if you do they pull you back with a follow up question. But you want to avoid that if you can.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in November 2013.

    Interview

    My first round of interviews on my schools campus went very well, that got me a second round interview on Intel's campus. Looking back I feel like I was much more confident with that interview then on Intel's campus. My interviews on Intel's campus did not go so well. Both times I was notified very quickly about my results (within days). When I was not hired I was actually able to speak to an Intel HR employee for about 30 minutes and get some valuable feedback about how my interview went.
