    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Grant Thornton in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called on phone after on line application. Set up interview, conducted interview. Told me that another person would call, never happened. Emailed later that that person was unavailable. They sounded interested but waited over 2+ weeks to send request for information regarding very specific experience in reference to a new government program. I could have provided the information, but the job had a shelf life of 2 years, decided that it wasn't worth it.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly just chit chat, nothing technical or based upon my resume.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Grant Thornton in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process for scheduling the interview was a bit hectic. I received an email stating the interview was scheduled for the next day, so I didn't have much notice. The interview process was straight forward. There were five 30-minute interviews with different managers. The process lasted about 3 hours.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview Details

    I went to the career fair at my school and met with the recruiter from Grant Thornton. That week, I got a call for an on campus interview for their summer leadership program. A month later I got a call from the recruiter asking me to come into their office for an interview for an internship instead of the summer leadership program. I have no yet gone to the interview but I have high hopes... therefore on my "did you get an offer?" I will put no because I haven't finished with this whole process

    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.
