    Interview Details

    Got through university recruiting. Interviewed on campus with the HR director. Interview was very conversational and relaxed. They basically just went over the things on my resume and had me expand on them with a lot of time at the end for questions I had. They said I should hear back in several weeks.

    Very few behavioral and no technical questions at all. Basically conversational on getting to know how you speak and present yourself. They judge your technical skills entirely from your resume and education.

    Summer Pathways Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied on campus and received an invitation for an interview after a few weeks. The recruiter was VERY social and nice. She started off asking me about myself and from there we talked about my likes, why I picked accounting, why I picked the school I did, etc. Then we talked about the company more and what kinds of social things they do. It seems like a great company from what she told me. It seemed very much like a conversation and she didn't ask weird behavioral questions like weaknesses or any of those "name a time when....." questions.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met with managers during campus recruiting functions - job fair, socials, picnics. Had on-campus interview with manager. Friendly, and informative, yet also honest and personable. Employees seemed happy and excited with their career and carry themselves in a professional manner. Felt like I could relate to younger staff members, especially new hires.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview Details

    First round on-campus. Second round pre-interview dinner and then 4 1/2 hours at the office the next day, which included a company presentation, 3 one-on-one interviews with managers and directors, and lunch with staff at the end. Everyone there was friendly. However, not sure how they picked the people who got offers in the end. Perhaps based on a better cultural fit or a higher degree (MST?)

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions. The interviews were very conversational and laid-back. Mostly wanted to get to know you. Will definitely ask why McGladrey and why tax.   Answer Question

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was a pre-interview mixer where a partner and some managers, seniors and new hires/staff accountants mingled with the interviewees. That was pleasant good to talk with the people you are interviewing with before the interview itself, in some ways it was an interview with no pressure.
    Interview happened the next day, I had met my interviewer beforehand at the mixer.
    Questions were behavioral in nature - 'have you worked with a difficult person?'
    How do you work with teams? etc

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing specific - I have a varied background and some international work experience that has been difficult to explain to most interviewers because it falls well outside the normal work experience. So any questions relating to past work experience specific to that work were tough - I just closely linked bits of what I did to what staff accountants are expected to do or linked it to the behavioral questions 'what was a difficult work situation & how did you overcome it?' and keep it relevant to audit/accounting job requirements   Answer Question
