Accounting/Finance Intern Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2013.

Interview

The first round interview was on campus. It was a 2 on 1 interview, and it lasted for about 45 minutes. The interview was very relaxed. First, the interviewers talked about themselves, their backgrounds as well as the company as a whole. Then they asked me some basic questions such as my interest in The Capital Group and why I applied for this specific position. They also asked me about my interest in accounting and why I decided to become an accounting major. They asked me questions like "What was your toughest class?" or "What was your most interesting class?" Overall, they ran through my resume and asked me questions about my background. No technical questions or tough behavioral questions.

A few days after the first round interview, I was invited to their Irvine office for second round interviews. I had 4 consecutive 45 minute interviews with a 15 minute break in between each interview. They were 1 on 1 interviews, and like the first round interview, they were very relaxed. The people I interviewed with were laid back and easy to talk to. They asked about my background and interest in company as well as a few behavioral questions, but nothing too difficult or surprising. They also provided us with lunch and a tour of the office.

Interview Questions

  • No difficult or unexpected questions. No technical questions. Just behavioral questions. Examples of some of the questions include: "Would you characterize yourself as opinionated?" "Tell me about a time where you faced an unexpected obstacle and how you overcame that obstacle." "Tell me about an time where you tried multiple times to accomplish something and ultimately failed and maybe realized it just wasn't for you."   Answer Question

    I completed an on-campus interview at my university, and a few days later I was invited to an on-site interview day at the Irvine campus.
