    Applied through campus career site and then met at accounting career fair. Had on campus interview two weeks later with a tax manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't ask as many difficult or many at all behavioral questions as I have had with other firms, but my interviewer wasn't particularly friendly either. They'll just ask you questions regarding leadership and multi tasking mostly.   View Answer
