I'm currently not in a finance role but want to get an idea as to what interviews are like for finance positions? Is it just behaviors questions or do companies have problem solving components. I know that for recent graduates there are case interviews, but is this the case for experienced hires too? Would love to hear some interview questions that people have received for their current position.

- New / Finance krupp825I can only answer for FP&A roles. Most the time just behavior / specific questions on how you utilized finance practices in the past to create value etc.
A couple of places sent over an “excel test” where they wanted you to forecast and analyze what was going on with the test data; nothing too complicated though.
Like with most non-technical positions, it’s really about how you can demonstrate what you’ve done in the past that directly aligns with the position qualifications that is important.

We do not ask bullshit or trick questions, or test. Your skill set will come out during the discussions.

AM is also requires relationship-building skills so that wil be a focus at least partly. Lastly, you're likely to be interviewed by double digit number of people to determine if you would be a good fit.
