I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in June 2007.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a regional human resource manager. She reviewed all of my educational background and then conducted a phone interview. At the conclusion she stated she would call back in a week to determine if I would receive an in person interview. I went to the office and met with 4 management level employees for half of a day. I was then instructed that I received an offer and had 2 weeks to make my decision.

Assurance Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in March 2012.

Interview Details – Applies online and through campus career website, but what helped the most was giving them my resume at career fair. Process consisted of 45 minute interview at university- I was asked a lot about my resume, but most important part of the interview are the questions that I asked. I was notified the next week I had been accepted for the 2nd round Office Interviews. Office Interview consisted of 2- 45 minute 1 on 1 interviews with a partner and a director. They asked me very general questions about myself/resume, team work experience, "Why M&P?", "Why not big4?". Their questions lasted 5-10 mins. The rest of the time was for me to ask questions. The questions you ask are the most important part of the interview.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I'm not sure if I could have negotiated (if I could have it was not clear), but I did not.

Tax Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Davenport, IA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had an on campus interview with an HR woman. She was nice but all she did was go through a list of questions. I left thinking I was not going to get a second interview, but about 5 days later I received a call asking me to come in for an office interview. I went and there were 13 of us. I had two interviews with a Tax Partner and a Tax Manager. Both interviews were not at all behavioral and just chit chatting, but make sure you get in your experiences and interest in McGladrey. After that it was a dinner with a lot of the tax employees. Make sure you speak to as many as you can.
