    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2008.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2007.

    Interview Details

    Intel has a standard questions booklet they select questions from to test your individual apptitude and personality. They will also ask you to give several examples of situaitons you've been in that were confrontational, difficult, challenging, etc. It is helpful to have such examples prepared beforehand. I was also asked a very difficult technical question that involved semiconductor processing, but few of the other candidates reported questions as complicated as mine.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    My initial communication was with the hiring manager over the phone. The next phone screen was done by one of the team members and was technical but with standard questions that were expected.
    The planning of the interview was very organized through email although as with many companies the online application took at least an hour to fill out.
    The in-person interview lasted all day and included hour long meetings and detailed technical interviews with the team as well as a group interview during lunch. The team members were all sharp and very enthusiastic about their work. Only one was slightly condescending possibly because I had no idea regarding that employee's area of specialty.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Took me out to Hillsboro after a 1hr long phone interview. Phone interview asked me what my experiences were in modeling/sim, things like FEM.

    Went out to Hillsboro, crappy city but great perks by Intel. Folk there are just workn too hard, had a presentation for an hr in the morning (exactly an hr), then got HAMMERED by a bunch of the audience through 1:1 interviews. I didn't do a good job explaining what "I" did for my PhD because it kind of got lost in bringing everyone up to speed. I spent too much time on background info since I didn't know my audience, GET TO KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE BEFORE YOU GO!

    You will be exhausted after the interview.
