    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    There was an interview on campus after many meetings through networking events. I had never met the person interviewing me prior to the interview. Attending the events was definitely worth it though to grasp the culture of the firm.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at McGladrey LLP (Irvine, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewed with two Partners and a Director of Development. The primary questions were regarding my sales experience. The firm was certainly looking for more of a salesman than someone with audit expertise.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McGladrey LLP (Tallahassee, FL (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's Career website and then they emailed me to set up an interview date and time that they were going to be on campus for.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly simple and it was more conversational rather than an actual interview. One thing that I would strongly advise is that make sure you know your resume front and back, and also be ready to talk about ALL of the things that you have listed on your resume.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. First round--on campus. Second round--office visit with three interviewers.

    It's important to make a good impression at events during the pre-interview stage. Getting to know the firm and the people handling recruiting at career fairs and social events goes a long way towards doing well during more formal interviews. I had already established a good report with my first-round interviewer at prior events, so the actual interview went very smoothly.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Interviews were mainly behavioral.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    Only went through one interview - they seemed to take candidates who did not do as well in school as the Big 4 liked, which was beneficial. Just because someone is book smart does not mean that they can do their job well.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unusual or difficult questions - typical interview questions only.   Answer Question
