    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with manager and soon afterwards with a supervisor. Took about 20 mins. Basically if you go in with no kind of public accounting experience, you won't be considered. The manager seemed like she had a pre determined idea of a candidate that I did not fit. The supervisor seemed competent and very over worked. They both seemed stressed out and it wasn't even tax season.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause in October 2014.

    Interview

    Sat with current Baker Tilly employee who had been in the position for ~1 year. Went into first half of interview, where we talked about my resume and fit-based questions. Second part of the interview was with a senior director. This was the behavior part. While the others I had met with were all very friendly, the director was substantially colder, likely for intimidation.

    Interview Questions

    • If we were to give you an offer, what would make you reject it? This question was given to me after we had spent a substantial amount of time talking about what I was seeking in an employer, as it pertained to Baker Tilly.

      Tell me about a time that you leveraged a strong relationship in order to meet a deadline.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    I applied through the campus recruiting services located on my college campus. The entire process consisted of an initial interview on campus, social prior to second interview, then a full day of interviews followed by lunch. I felt the process was extremely well organized. It allows a candidate to get to know the firm and it gives the partner's/staff members a chance to find out more about you.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were behavioral based. Having a broad range of experiences and situations to elaborate on helped me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, fair offer.
