Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in October 2012.

Interview Details

Interview consisted of two one hour interviews. The questions were a mix of behavioral and technical. The interviewers were very aggressive and confrontational. The interview ended with a 15 minute role-play in conflicted resolution mixed with technical finance questions. The interviewer assumed the role of an angry engineer whose project I had just canceled and I had to resolve the problem. Not fun.

    Two back to back 1:1 interviews on campus. I was interviewing for a finance summer internship position. Both technical and fit questions. I was also asked about some industry trends and what I thought about Intel's strategy going forward. We talked about different valuations methods, what to do when faced with certain difficulties, SOX, internal vs. external auditors, and Intel's McAfee purchase. The interviewers were quite friendly and nice, but some questions were tough and quite specific.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2007.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very thorough. It began with an hour long phone interview that was mainly assessing financial concepts such as NPV analysis and decision outcomes, make vs. buy analysis etc. The second interview was a 1:1 interview which was mostly financial case studies and personality questions. The interviewers were very knowledgable and professional and I did feel at ease with them.

    Unfortunately the company doesn' t negotiate pay or benefits but you have the opportunity to negotiate the location. The offer you receive is for a Financial Analyst position and you will be assigned to a group when you are about to come on board.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The position was posted on a campus job board. I applied and was contacted in about 10 days to schedule an on-campus interview. The initial interview was with 2 employees in Intel finance that were volunteering their time. They were back-to-back 30 minute interviews, the first was a structured behavioral interview and the second was a role-playing exercise. I was selected and notified to travel to Portland for a second round of interviews. Candidates (about 12) were told that we were not competing against each other, the interviews were to to test fit and qualification for the position. There was a presentation about the benefits and then we had 3 individual, one-hour interviews which were again, structured, behavioral interviews. I was notified within 10 days that I would not receive an offer and told why. It was a lengthy process, but came across as fair and relevant.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Intel Corporation in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first communication with the company following my submittal of the application was a screening interview. In this interview, the recruiter asked me some high-level technical questions and a few behavioral.

    During the second round, I met with two individuals (separately) for about an hour each. In the second set of interviews, there were a lot more behavioral questions. They asked a variety of the standard "Tell me about a time when..." questions, and a couple related to decision-making.
