    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Notre Dame, IN) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Most of the hiring comes from campus recruiting. There are specific finance managers assigned to all of the key schools. Building a relationship with them is a great way to improve your chances for an interview. For internships, there were two interviews and full-time, I believe there were 3 rounds of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • There were multiple questions about the industry and markets that Intel should look at.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was done.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2011.

    Interview

    There are two initial phone interviews. The interviewers are actual financial analyst, not HR or recruiting personnel. The phone interviews are 45 min to 60 min in length. There is a combination of behavioral and technical questions but the emphasis is on the behavioral questions.
    If you do well enough you will have another series of interviews at one of the major Intel locations. There you will do three 1-on-1 interviews of 45 min each. Again, these are performed by actual analysts and managers. The format is the same (behavior plus technical). There are 6 to 7 questions that follow a script that details specific responses or keywords that the interviewer is looking for.
    I found that everyone throughout the processes wants you to do well. It is not about keeping people out (as others are) but rather to make sure there is a good fit from both sides.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I participated in the candidate rush at the Chandler, AZ site. My travel and lodging were payed for. I was very happy with the overall process. The first day was an overview of the rotational program and Intel. The second day we attended a presentation concerning the benefits of working at Intel. We were given three separate interviews. All interviews were behavioral in nature. Each interview had a technical component which was relatively basic. My advice would be make sure you have some strong examples of experiences to draw upon (work, school, etc.). Make sure you are aware of basic functions of company by reviewing 10K or Q. Have a strong working knowledge of corporate finance and the current regulatory environment.

    Interview Questions

    • You are asked to analyze two projects to determine which will be funded. Describe what your analysis process is.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when your decisions had a negative effect on the outcome of a project.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Have a lot of experiences from past club and leaderships positions so that you can relate your experiences towards the position. Be ready to answer technical and behavioral questions and be as specific and in depth as possible because recruiters want to see how much you learned in your college career while seeing how you stand apart from your peers.
