Getting an Interview
Staff Accountant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aronson & Co.
Interview Details – After a phone interview I was invited for an office interview with 3-4 people back-to-back. Most of the people asked me basic behavioral questions but one guy asked me to do a few journal entries. I felt pretty good about the interview and the HR guy told me they would make a decision the next week. I haven't heard back from then since (now 2 months later). It was highly unprofessional and discourteous of them not to tell me their decision.
