Senior Tax Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
McLean, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at BDO USA in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted directly through LinkedIn by a recruiter for a position in their Int'l Tax department. Phone interview with recruiter and in-person interview with the Senior Manager & Partner

Interview Question – Some technical questions, mostly trying to see if we could work with each other 60+ hours a week.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – BDO insisted they had workplace flexibility, "We're not like other Big 4" type - when it came down to it, it was mandatory 60+ hour workweeks, Saturday & Sunday, etc. Thankfully the manager was honest and told me this during the interview. I think long hours are expected in public accounting but the firm made themselves out to be something they weren't, all the way through until the interview.
