    Interview Details

    I contacted Human Resources about job possibilities and was promptly responded to. The interviewing process consisted of a preliminary phone interview and then an in-house interview. During the interview I met with multiple partners and managers of the firm. Overall the experience was great and having the chance to first year associates allowed me to get an honest feel of what I could expect of the firm.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BDO USA.

    Interview Details

    I met some current employees from BDO at my school's career fairs over the course of two weeks or so. I applied online through campus recruiting both for my school and also on the BDO website. I got selected to come in for a first round interview which I was excited for. I had been in contact with one employee who was very encouraging and friendly. The tax manager was nice but didn't seem too interested or engaged.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of it was conversational, some more formal some more informal which was nice but it didn't give me the opportunity to showcase or even explain my skills and why I should be hired.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    BDO has a great culture. People are very friendly there and easy to talk to. The interviews were very conversational and you can tell that the professionals really want to get to know you. They also provide a pre-interview social/dinner before the campus interview so you will have the chance to meet the interviewer before you actually have the interview the next day.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BDO USA.

    Interview Details

    Applied on campus career website. The first round interview was on campus with one of the partners. Very conversational, went over my resume, asked tons of questions about my interests, hobbies, allowed me to ask questions as well.
    Second interview was an office visit. 3 interviews. The interview with the director threw me off. She started by telling me she wanted to answer any questions I may have. It wound up on her talking about her children. Then interviewed with a manager and another person whose title I cannot remember.
