Interview Details –
I applied in November for a Graduate position and didn't hear back until May, but at least I heard back! Was offered a phone interview- which was awful! It was my first time being asked technical finance questions in an interview-applying stuff I learned in the classroom to business situations. He was obviously looking for key words though, and even though I could explain what the answer was he wasn't satisfied until I finally got to that key word which made it very awkward and strained. I ended the interview sure I was out, but I was offered another one-not sure if 2 interviews is the standard or not, but it was a surprise!
Second interview went a lot better. Pretty much the same technical questions, which I now knew the answers to. And the typical situational questions and questions about Intel itself. Went a lot better and I got through to the next round-an on-site interview. Unfortunately, I was traveling when they had the on-site interviews and they had hired someone by the time I returned.
Overall it was am intense and stressful couple interviews, but once I knew what key concepts the interviewer was looking for it was easier as I did actually know the stuff. I guess thats where practice comes in handy!

Interview Details –
1. Resume submitted online for financial analyst position, through university's career services website.
2. First round: call from Intel; spoke with someone about my background; was asked to explain to previous internships. This was a very easy interview...they just wanted to see if you were potentially worth their time.
3. Round two: two back-to-back phone interviews with financial analysts (or managers?) at the Hillsboro, Oregon site. Format was standard...about five behavioral questions ("Give me an example of when..."), with one or two technical questions ("What considerations does a global company need to be make?", "if you had one financial statement, which would it be and why?").
4. Round three: Flown out to Hillsboro, Oregon for three on-site interviews; similar to phone interviews (mix of behavioral and technical questions); interviews conducted by financial analysts (senior and/or manager, I think).
* On-site interview was great; Intel paid for all travel (including hotel, flight, rental car, and daily spending money); they also paid for me to stay an extra two days, so candidates could check out Portland and Hillsboro.

Interview Details – 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.
