    I applied online – interviewed at CBS.

    Interview Details

    Had a quite generic phone interview that lasted about 20 minutes. Questions about myself and how I would do in certain situations. Seemed energetic enough for a call back but received nothing. Found the position while surfing the corporate website.

    It was a pretty easy process. I applied online and they were pretty on schedule in terms of hiring according to school semesters. I didn't think the interview was too bad. Everyone was super nice and I think ultimately, the job is to be yourself!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CBS in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through school website and then also applied through CBS career website. It took me around two weeks to get the interview invitation from HR. I spoke with two interviewers. Both of them are senior tax managers who are really nice people. The interview was not difficult. They went through my resume and some other easy questions regarding my personality and attitude towards school work and prior internships. As long as you get familiar with your resume, it should be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CBS.

    Interview Details

    I met with the HR recuiter, then 3 other people, including the VP of Internal Audit. All three people from the business were nice. It appears that they were looking for someone with a little less experience and with a CPA. Seems like it would be a great place to work.
