    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bench Accounting.

    Interview

    I was qualified for the job, but they asked what TV shows I liked (it's not Rick and Morty) and they said I wasn't a good fit for the company. If you have any seniority, take a pass because it looks like HR is just practicing age discrimination to keep salaries down.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bench Accounting.

    Interview

    I applied online for Bench Accounting because I had heard many great things about the company from classmates. When I submitted my application online, they requested to schedule a phone interview in the upcoming days. The phone interview was a pleasant conversation and the caller demonstrated passion for the company. She was very helpful in answering any inquiries that I had and was very thorough in here explanations. After the phone interview, I was scheduled to go into the head office (very nice office) in a couple day, to have a face to face interview with a team-leader. Once again this interview was a great experience because they were very receptive towards my answers. Instead of typical interviews, where questions would be fired out constantly, they would comment on my answer and build on it. After the interview, they said they would contact me in the next couple days on the next step. 3 days later, I was given a written assignment to do. This assignment took me 6 hours to complete. The assignment was not difficult, but required a lot of thought. Once they received my assignment, and reviewed it, they contacted me to inform me that they would like to extend me an offer.

    Overall, it was a great experience and they were very on top of things. For previous jobs, I had experiences where interview processes would take weeks just to get back to me, which was very frustrating. At Bench they were efficient and clear on what to expect for the next steps.
