Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Hillsboro, OR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in December 2016.

Interview

The interview process had 2 rounds. The first round was a phone screening process. In that first round, the questions are a mix of behavioral and technical. For the technical questions, the interviewer really wants to see your thought process when solving problems. The second round was in-person and the questions were similar to the first round. What makes the second round unique is your ability to see the campus, meet the amazing people and see your potential future home.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I first was contacted for a technical finance screening interview. It was a 30 minute interview. Everyone at Intel was really nice and seemed interested in helping me. They would keep asking follow-up questions until I got to the answer they were looking for. After the initial phone interview, they invited me to come and have a meet and greet dinner. The next day I had to 30 minute one on one interviews on site. The questions were both behavioral and financial in nature.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in November 2013.

    Interview

    My first round of interviews on my schools campus went very well, that got me a second round interview on Intel's campus. Looking back I feel like I was much more confident with that interview then on Intel's campus. My interviews on Intel's campus did not go so well. Both times I was notified very quickly about my results (within days). When I was not hired I was actually able to speak to an Intel HR employee for about 30 minutes and get some valuable feedback about how my interview went.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Beaverton, OR) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I applied in November for a Graduate position and didn't hear back until May, but at least I heard back! Was offered a phone interview- which was awful! It was my first time being asked technical finance questions in an interview-applying stuff I learned in the classroom to business situations. He was obviously looking for key words though, and even though I could explain what the answer was he wasn't satisfied until I finally got to that key word which made it very awkward and strained. I ended the interview sure I was out, but I was offered another one-not sure if 2 interviews is the standard or not, but it was a surprise!

    Second interview went a lot better. Pretty much the same technical questions, which I now knew the answers to. And the typical situational questions and questions about Intel itself. Went a lot better and I got through to the next round-an on-site interview. Unfortunately, I was traveling when they had the on-site interviews and they had hired someone by the time I returned.

    Overall it was am intense and stressful couple interviews, but once I knew what key concepts the interviewer was looking for it was easier as I did actually know the stuff. I guess thats where practice comes in handy!
