Finance Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Albuquerque, NM

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Albuquerque, NM) in February 2016.

Interview

Easy. Advisor sent out an email on the list-serve, I applied, got called 3 months later for an interview. A manager from another state flew in. Surprisingly easy interview, only three finance questions. I have no formal finance training or education but I was clear about this. Made a personal connection with one interviewer. Got a call a month later and about two weeks of filling out more stuff I was hired with a signing bonus of 1 month's salary. Wear a suit, they'll give you a bonus that more than pays for it.

Not able to negotiate, although certainly tried. They basically said they offered me as much as they could. Talked with someone from Costa Rica who spoke good english.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on my campus career center website. They emailed me a couple days later to schedule a phone pre screening interview. I then proceeded to do 2 30 minute interviews on campus. The two interviewers were really nice and welcoming. You could tell that they enjoyed their job at the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    Campus Recruiting: Two 45-minute interviews back-to-back, 7 questions in each interview for 14 total questions. Some of the questions are repetitive, but they want to see if you improve your answer the second time. I talked to two employees that work in finance, not recruiters. They called me the next day to let me know I had an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2013.

    Interview

    Only got through 1st round -
    1st round was a campus interview
    2 - 30 minute interviews -- the second one ran super long (50 minutes)
    Interviews were very technical -- very few behavioral questions and basically zero questions relating to your interest in Intel or the industry or why you are even sitting in the interview!
    One interview was about finance and even some supply chain technical questions straight off a piece of paper.
    The second interview was a business case that used some off the concepts talked about in the previous interview.

    Interview Questions

      What is the WACC? When does a company use this?
      How do you calculate the cost of equity?

      What is the difference between the 3 financial statements? Please go through each of them and talk me through how they are connected.
      What is the competitive landscape of Intel?
      If I make an investment of say $ 1 M, walk me through how this affects all the statements.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2011.

    Interview

    Received a call for HR that they were interested. Had two initial screening interviews that lasted an average of about 45 mins each. Interviews were pretty comfortable with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. Received a callback the same day saying I was recommended for additional interviewing. Was flown out to a campus a couple weeks later.

    There was an informal networking event over dinner the day before the interview, and I was able to speak with some employees (all of whom were nice and seemed to like Intel). You also get a presentation from some finance people before the dinner.

    On the interview day, they split the candidates into different rooms and have three different interviewers rotate into the rooms for 45 minute interviews with breaks in between. These interviews are also a mix of technical/case and behavioral, with some interviewers leaning more heavily on one aspect than others.

    About a week and a half after the interview I received an offer.

    Specific advice: Tailor your technical/case answers in a way that demonstrates you know Intel's financial and market position. If you don't they'll ask you to.
