    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview Details

    It took about a week. I contacted a recruiter and she set me up with an Senior Associate. Being my first interview, I did not expect some of the questions. Phone interview: basic questions, be more professional over personal at all times. He was friendly and made me at ease, but not enough preparation. Asked tell me about yourself, strengths and weaknesses, something about yourself not on the resume.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Grant Thornton in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process I went through was through the campus recruiting process. I applied on my campus career center website for the program and had an on campus interview a couple weeks after. It was pretty straightforward like many other accounting firms operate in terms of recruiting. I had networked before so that really helped in getting comfortable with the recruiter and being conversative.

    Interview Details

    Campus interview which was all behavioral, then in the office for 3 thirty minute grill sessions from two managers and the practice partner. Pretty standard stuff, just a resume run through, career motivations, what you think you can do to add value to client work, etc. No business case or brain teasers.
