Audit Associate Interview

Audit Associate
DeKalb, IL (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in October 2013.

Interview Details Interviewed on our campus, received a call from the director the next day and was offered a position. She told me that I would be a great fit and that I would work in the oak brook office. The Partners were friendly and seemed like really good people. I am naturally a good interviewer so I did not have any problems. If you are shy or not so good, speak up, think through your answers and you will rock. Good luck!

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you questioned a authority figure.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Technically I have yet to accept it but I am pretty sure I am going to accept. Not negotiating, I know how much friends were offered by the firm, I am happy if I am offered what they were offered.

IT Manager Interview

IT Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in April 2011.

I knew more than the technical interviewers, so was actually fun. Background check was extremely thorough, any skeletons in the closet will be found if you aren't professional.

Interview Question – My interview was so easy, there was not a difficult or unexpected question although the onsite interview took a full day.   Answer Question

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Oak Brook, IL (US)

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in May 2012.

Interview Details Moves slowly as there are several layers of interviews. First there is a phone interview with an HR type person, then you will have another phone interview with a manager. Finally, you will have multiple in person interviews with several of the senior managers and partner. I applied online for an open position through the Crowe website. However, I have referred several canidates through our referral program and its generally an easier process if you know someone within the company that can refer you.

Interview Question – What is the most difficult situation you encounterd and how did you soove the problem?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There really isnt much of a negotiation. The partner calls you with the offer and either you accept or ask for more money. Typically, they do a good job of giving you what they think is fair.
