Helpful (1)No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BDO USA (Chicago, IL).
It was pretty simple. I was contacted by the recruiter for a phone screening. I was then asked to come in for an in-office interview. It seemed like I was going to get the job-the interviewer went as far to say I was exactly what they were looking for- but they dragged out giving me a response for about a month before actually emailing me back saying they don't think I am what they were looking for.

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BDO USA.
I first interviewed over the phone and was then invited to come into the office for interviews. Upon first arriving, the firm did not have anyone at the reception that even knew I was scheduled for an interview; this should have tipped me off right away. I was interviewed by a few people at the firm and the interviews went quite well. However after a week, it seemed that I would not be receiving an offer. I politely sent a brief email requesting an update on my application status to the recruiter and never heard back. More than two months after my in person interviews, I received a standard form email saying that the position had been filled. It is incredibly unprofessional and rude to not follow up with candidates who took the time out of their day to come in and interview for hours. It shows a lack of respect for candidates and is the epitome of rudeness. While I understand that they apparently found someone who was a better fit, was it so much of an inconvenience to send me a follow up email that they couldn't find the one minute to update me?

I applied online. I interviewed at BDO USA in July 2015.
I applied online, and was given 2 Phone Interviews so far. I am still pending on the final round. The first interview was from New York main office and the questions were mainly about my previous valuation projects I have done in school. Talked about geographic location preference. The second interview was given by the San Francisco office. Talked about past projects in more detail. Asked basic questions such as WACC and other simple question that relates to future career directions.

Very relaxed interview. Not a typical Q&A format that we so often encounter. More on a conversation level about work expectations, work life balance , and future goals. I saw myself asking more questions about the firm then my interviewer. Overall, it was a very smooth experience. The interview itself made me work this firm even more because of the interviewers I encountered.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY).
I came in right before my interview. They were very welcoming, and then sat me down in a conference room with a senior manager. I had two back to back interviews with two senior managers who were both super nice and very charismatic. The interview flowed easily and I was comfortable speaking with both interviewers.

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY) in April 2015.
Interview with a partner and a manager in the financial services audit department. The first interviewer mainly spoke about his own career track and what the intern training program was about. The second just opened up the conversation for my own questions and we had an interesting talk about some of the more recent regulatory trends in the financial services sector and how it has affected audit.
