    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    Hiring process was a pretty quick turnaround of only about 4 weeks. I had gone through four rounds with the first two being a 30-45 min phone call interview, third round was a 3.5 hour on-site, and the fourth and final round being a 2 hour on-site. All interviewers were very nice and I was always left enough time to ask questions at the end which was very insightful. They covered your corporate finance/accounting knowledge, lots of behavioral questions, and had an intermediate level Excel test.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was a referral and within a day was asked to set up a phone screening. I had a 30 minute phone screening two days later and was told I would be fast-tracked through the process, as there were two positions that were a fit for my experience. I did not hear back for two weeks and when I sent a follow-up email, I received a voicemail and was told I was a very promising candidate and would hear back within days. I received an automated message a week later informing me that I would not be moving on in the interview process. When I requested feedback on my screening call, I received no response.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at LinkedIn (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Excellent experience, very professional, great organization. I applied online through LinkedIn and was selected for a phone interview. I had 2 phone interviews and met with 4 individuals F2F in their SF office. Everyone was very nice, easy going, and incredibly bright! Great questions but they made it seem more like a conversation than an interview. I was given an offer 3 days later.
