Staff Auditor Interview

Staff Auditor
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BKD in June 2012.

Interview Details – Management and Partners are very polite, overall BKD gives off a good vibe. I've researched the company and it appears the biggest CON is that you have to work extremely hard, though isn't this to be expected in any position? Should anything less be expected? I believe this is a PRO, staying busy/working hard allows for personal growth on many level, this is surely a PRO in my opinion. I understand that I am just an outsider looking in, but my first impression is that BKD would make a great employer and has a lot to offer those willing to work hard for a living.

Tax Staff Accountant Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BKD.

Standard office interview except for an odd personality test, followed by lunch, then a manila envelope from a partner with the offer letter.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at BKD in October 2011.

Interview Question – If you could start your college career over what would you do differently?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate with them as far as my pay. You are well paid and everyone makes the same. Its hard to negotiate internship hourly pay but definitely a must when you get a full time salary offer.
