Tax Intern
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BDO USA in October 2012.

Interview Details – It started with a phone interview. I was then chosen for an on-site interview. I had to interview with five different people for thirty minutes each. All interviewers were top management, plus two partners.

When I got to the office, we were told dinner was cancelled because the staff was trying to meet a deadline.

You get really hungry after interviewing with five people.

 From there I had to wait around three weeks before I got a decision.

Interview Question – What type of training did you have at your last internship; did your learning style fit with it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for internships.

Mainly conversational. After I received a phone call to go to the office. The office visit was very pleasant. It consisted of three interviews. One partner and two managers. Partner interview was just a conversation. One manger interview was about my resume. The other manager interview was behavioral questions.

Tax Intern Interview

Tax Intern

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BDO USA in November 2010.

Interview Details – I did not follow the normal structure of campus recruiting for internships, as I directly kept in touch with various recruiters at the firm. Recruiters at BDO are a lot more receptive then most recruiters at comparable mid-size firms and the Big 4, as a majority of the time you are either contacted couple months later or never. A phone interview was conducted first which lasted around 20-30 minutes, and then an office interview was scheduled, which I met with 1 partner, 1 senior manager, and 1 HR manager. The interview mainly reviewed my past experience and education, and why I wanted to work for BDO.
