    Finance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted over the phone and set up a phone interview with a third party. It took them a couple different calls to finally reach me and it was hard for me to know who was calling because I was never left a message. The lady had a bit of an accent and was hard to understand at first, but was very nice and understanding. She ended up being the one to interview me and was very concise about how the interview was laid out. At the end she reviewed all of my answers in order to allow me to prepare for the next step if I was to make it on to the assessment center.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't ask any technical questions in the initial interview ; it was all behavioral analysis questions. One question that really got me was one about their current events; "What do you think our customer's biggest issue is with us (Rolls-Royce) at this time?"   1 Answer

I dint get through the interview because of the citizenship status. They asked if i want to apply for another position which they would provide sponsorship , after applying to the second position i haven't heard from them.

    Design Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty standard. HR conducts the first round of interviews. If you get past this then management conducts the second round. Decisions are made slowly, so don't be surprised if it takes a while to get back to you.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, the questions are straightforward. Their interviewing process is not too crazy.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation as I accepted out of college.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce in May 2014.

    Interview

    I heard from an organization I am a part of that Rolls-Royce was still hiring for a summer internship. I emailed the listed contact with my résumé and a brief cover letter. About two and a half weeks later, I received a call from this contact asking when we could meet on campus for an interview in person.

    When I showed up at the interview location, there were two people interviewing and I ended up interviewing with the one with whom I had not previously spoken with. We sat down, and he told me that Rolls-Royce has very standard interview procedures. Then he pushed the papers with these standardized questions off to the side and proceeded to ask me to tell him about myself. He then just more questions about what I'm studying, showing great interest in my business minor. By the end, he never asked any typical behavioral or otherwise expected interview questions. We basically just chatted about what I've learned in school and he asked me some questions about what sort of factors I would need to consider given certain circumstances.

    The interview went very well, and he told me he liked my attitude and drive. A couple hours later, he gave me a call. He said he was recommending me for another position that would utilize my business skills more and I would hear from this other person the next day to set up a phone interview. That's just what happened, and the phone interview went great. Shortly after the interview, I received an email saying that I was being recommended for the internship and I would hear back about start date within the next week or two.

    A week and a half later, I was contacted with paperwork, etc. A drug test is required as well.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no really difficult question, as he did not use the standard questions. The most unexpected questions were those that were unique to myself. He asked me about different business considerations under certain circumstances.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was simply congratulated, and we proceeded from there.
