    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AICPA in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online. An HR representative called with two phone screen interviews. I was called in for a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager and HR representative. Interview seemed to go well, they both told me they needed to fill the position immediately but they needed to bring me back for another interview with the senior manager and again for a skills assessment test. They assured me they would contact me later in the week to set up these two meetings. I sent both interviewers thank you notes. Despite having several internal references I never heard from them again, and they do not answer phone or email.

    Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at AICPA in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    When I was a contractor, I had one interview with the manager, planned about a week in advance, took about two weeks for them to hire me after a decision was made. Decision was made within a week. When I was interviewing for the permanent role, it took much longer, I interviewed with the manager, somewhat technical. About a week later, I was called in to do an interview with another manager from the same department and the project manager. The interview for the full-time role was planned two weeks in advance, it took about 3 weeks for a decision to be made, and another two weeks for my employment to officially begin. Benefits started at the beginning of the next month (if the day didn't fall on the 1st).

    Member Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at AICPA in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    First you're contacted by a HR Rep. Just so you know, they contract with an outside organization. The rep gives you a rundown of the interview process and discusses salary. I'd like to add, the HR organization is extremely unprofessional and really don't have a clue. I was told that I'd receive a confirmation email on two separate occasions. I didn't get mine until minutes before my interview; I had to get the address from the internet. For some odd reason, you're not given the name of the interviewer. You're just told to ask for an available supervisor. Nice. I felt the interview went reasonably well. I sent one thank you and one hand written thank you notes. I tried to follow up with a second and third email and neither responded. I've decided to cut my losses with this rude bunch.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at AICPA in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    They asked questions like tell me a little about yourself, name an instance of when you dealt with a difficult customer and how you handled the situation. They also asked of an example of when you offered good customer service. The work culture appears to be professional but comfortable at the same time. The office was environment was very professional as well, each person has their own large cubicle. But still a very friendly environment, witnessed employees that sat next to each other conversating quietly while not on calls. Maintaning a professional demeanor is key and emphasizing your desire to work with people and how good you are at that is very good.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me a little about yourself, it caught me off guard. I have not been asked that question suprisingly in most of my interviews.   View Answer
