I applied online and interviewed at CBS.

Senior Internal Auditor Interview

Senior Internal Auditor

I applied through an employee referral and 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.
