    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Anchin Block & Anchin.

    Interview

    Applied through university. Waited in lobby for interview and overheard the Anchin employees who came down for recruitment loudly and openly discussing potential candidates in a very unprofessional manner. It was very high school-like, gossipy behavior. Interviewer was bored and uninterested in what I had to say.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Anchin Block & Anchin (New York, NY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I went in through a campus recruiting. Took about 3 weeks. From what I heard, They started near the last week of October, and would notify qualified candidates before Mid-Nov. It was just an ELA position, but appeared to be some sort of "program", that grabs a bunch of candidates, trains them, then put them in places where the company thinks they'd need help in. Anyways, I digress. I was not told there'd be THREE interviews, so you better get your ball game adjusted. You're set up with a "buddy", who is someone that brings you to the floors where the interviews will be held, give you a tour, and provide some insights to the company. Lunch was offered afterwards with your "buddies", which is usually either ordered in or going out to eat. All my interviewers were great. Friendly for the most part. Thankfully, NO technical questions for me. However, based on the other reviews, there were a lot of behavioral questions. There was also a hint of "sell yourself to me" in the air. It's also most likely that it's the first time they're looking at your resume. In my opinion, the questions they asked, and the way everything was structured, it's likely that HR had a huge hand in all of this. All of them were most likely pulled into a group meeting/email to introduce recommended questions and the way they should behave.

    Negotiation

    Do not be overly ambitious. Be CLEAR in the position you want, and not to suck up. Always point out to past experience, not what you can become. Make your presence known to all the people that you meet, and be extremely careful not to offend anyone. Do not sound desparate.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Anchin Block & Anchin (New York, NY) in January 2008.

    Interview

    The interview was among the most unprofessional I have ever endured. A hiring manager came in yelling at me about why I wanted to work at Anchin, why I wasn't using my alumni network to seek a position elsewhere, and why I wasn't seeking to work at Ernst and Young.
