I'm in the interview process for a FA position in the sales finance team at a big tech startup. There's going to be an excel test for this that is done on the spot. Does anyone have an idea what will be tested on this? I'm assuming there will be a sales commission model since it's the sales finance team but I'm honestly not sure at all what will be tested and I'm pretty nervous for it

Sounds interesting. It's anyone's guess what they feel would be an important skill. Maybe some more info? How long is the test? Is it multiple questions or just one? Have they stated anything that seems Excel centric in the job description? I'd also contact the recruiter, it's their job to try to get you ready. If you want to be prepared - which you should be - they can probably help.

I emailed the recruiter but haven't heard back.. all I know is that it's a 15min timed Excel test that's done on the spot after the interview with the hiring manager. On the job description, it says looking for Excel expert but I would say I'm more towards proficient so really trying to study up now but don't even know where to begin. Based on the call initial call with the recruiter, I'm assuming it's a modeling question because he said Excel modeling is an important skill for this role

Regarding COVID- I understand why leaders and companies made the push for return to work but does anyone else have the feeling that COVID numbers will spike again in the Fall? Not talking peak numbers but just enough for a lot of companies to pump the brakes on return to work and reconsider. I’m not a scientist but have done some research on the current trends and expert opinions.
