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

    Interview Details

    I went through the campus recruiting process- career fair, on campus interview, and then office visit. Everything was pretty relaxed, yet you can tell you're being evaluated based on all of your behavior. Be yourself and it'll come naturally if you're the right fit for the firm, overall both you and the firm should feel comfortable as it is a mutual relationship.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was so nervous prior to my first interview with McGladrey. However, after meeting with career planning and going over the expected questions, I was much more relaxed. Going into the interview, I felt very prepared to talk about myself and my experiences on my resume. The interview was much more conversational than I expected and I found that it is easiest to talk than to wait for the interviewer to prompt you with questions.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was able to skip the first round interviews because I was part of their Summer Leadership Program. First-round interviews are usually held on campus. Second round interviews were held in-office. We were first given a presentation on the different opportunities McGladrey has to offer and an office tour. Then three different people interviewed me, who were managers or directors. They really tried to make it a relaxed environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly there were no unexpected questions, but the one I had most difficulty with was asking about a teamwork conflict from my work experience (most of my internships were individual work).   Answer Question

The interviews were very laid back and mostly conversational. I received an offer a few hours after I left the office.

Regular interview questions like "tell me about yourself". Basic interview I would say.
